Welcome to the Hilo Branch of AAUW.
We invite you to join our community of learners, thinkers, readers and doers as we support the State and National AAUW goal of equity for women and girls through fundraising for scholarships, activism at the State and local level, and personal introspection and growth.   Our local organization offers members opportunities to meet with others to discuss books and political considerations, to explore the island with organized hikes and to socialize and network with women with a long history on this island and in the state and with those of us who are new to Hawaii.

If you are interested in joining our organization, please contact our Membership Vice President Elizabeth Hansen at you are a member, consider joining one of our committees:  Event planning, Scholarship Fundraising, Outreach and Hospitality, Community Connections and our budding Advocacy Committee.  Then consider participating in our Hiking Group or Book Clubs.

If any of that sounds interesting to you, please contact me at
