Western Area Links are strong and united in our efforts to transform our communities. Whether marching for social and racial justice, putting food on the table of families, supplying PPE during this historic pandemic or pushing to end human trafficking, we are stirred by the desire to serve those in need.

Western Area Links Rising

In September 1950, three chapters of The Links, Incorporated were chartered in California (Los Angeles, Oakland Bay Area, and San Francisco), connecting the national organization’s chain of friendship from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. Subsequently, the Western Area grew to include the southern tip of Texas northward to Alaska and westward across the Pacific to Hawaii.

Drawing on the synergy generated by women who are committed to friendship and service, the Western Area now has more than 3,000 members in 60 chapters located in 10 states — Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Washington. Western Area chapters are characterized by leadership, award-winning programs, and warm, interpersonal relationships between and among members, as well as other chapters. Service hours that members contribute to their Western Area communities have increased yearly.
