Our History

105+ members strong, the Lodi branch AAUW was chartered in 1959 and incorporated in 1962. Membership is open to all persons who hold associate or baccalaureate degrees from accredited colleges or universities and to graduates of foreign institutions. This branch has been responsible for the establishment of the Family Life Education program in Lodi public schools, the Friends of the Lodi Library, the Lodi office of the Women’s Center of San Joaquin County and a “school-to-work educational guide for all middle school students and/or incoming ninth graders for Lodi Unified. We have also provided public forums for candidates for public office. As a mission-based organization, we believe in supporting education by sending middle school girls to Tech Trek and raising money for scholarships. We strongly support the national Education Foundation Fund (EF) and the Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF) through annual fundraising to help women.
