The Georgia Federation of Democratic Women is the official Georgia chapter of the National Federation of Democratic Women. Founded in 1971, NFDW is the Democratic National Committee’s official women’s organization and receives one seat on the DNC Executive Committee and three seats on the DNC. Likewise, the Georgia Federation of Democratic Women hold one seat on the Democratic Party of Georgia Executive Committee.
The Democratic Party and women share common values and priorities, including supporting our families, protecting our country, and advancing the issues that matter most to women of all ages and ethnicities. Our elected Democratic leaders in Congress and across the country continue to work tirelessly to advance progress for women in every respect. That’s why women vote Democratic.
The Georgia Federation of Democratic Women engages women in our democracy through a wide array of political activities, including providing its members with substantive information, discussion, and action items, along with opportunities to hear from and interact with party leaders. We strive to raise the political awareness of women in Georgia.
As members of the Georgia Federation of Democratic Women, we believe in the value of the individual and that government, while protecting life, liberty, and the property of individuals, must also be responsive to their collective needs and wills. To this end we encourage full, timely, and equal opportunity for all and promote the election of candidates for local, state, and national office who will serve with competence, common sense, and compassion. To live up to these values, we plan and organize meetings and programs both on the state level and in our local chapters around the state.
- To promote and encourage qualified women to seek political office and to serve on government boards and agencies.
- To promote the election of Democrats in all levels of government.
- To support or oppose programs and issues related to women locally, nationally and internationally.
- To provide opportunities for our volunteers and members to improve our country beyond the ballot through service projects.
We have been working around the state in various counties engaging women and educating voters. We have grown in presence and leadership, and have been empowered, inspired and successful in our journey.
