The Aromantic-spectrum Union for Recognition, Education, and Advocacy, also known as AUREA,[1] is a volunteer-based group dedicated to assisting "in the growth of the aromantic community", especially by researching and providing information related to aromanticism. This includes "vocabulary, research, online resources, links to in-person groups, and printable educational materials".[2]

AUREA was founded sometime in 2019, with the website being established during that year. The organization was formed in order to have an advocacy group specifically for aromantic people, since before its formation much of aromantic advocacy was limited to individual's personal blogs.[2]

AUREA has since grown in recognition, to the point where it is often cited as a resource on aromanticism by other established organizations.[3][4][5][6]


  • AUREA is currently organizing a book project that will collect people's experiences with aromanticism, including an introductory guide to the label, history of the community, and stories from individual aromantic people.[7]
