The National Federation of Democratic Women will be hosting their annual meeting in Charleston, WV
on June 12-16th 2013. NFDW represents Democratic women from all over the nation. As our numbers
grow, so does our ability to effect important change. This is an exciting time for women in politics.
West Virginia will be hosting the event in Charleston and we have chosen the theme:
“DEMOCRATIC WOMEN…. THE HEART OF THE PARTY….
53% AND COUNTING”
In the Election of 2012, women made up 53% of the electorate. Not only were women decisive in
re-electing President Obama, but they contributed to the record number of women representing
53% and counting means we need to keep it going and that is exactly what we intend to do.
We are counting on you to continue to register voters and get them to the polls.
Counting on you to encourage women to make their voices heard in their communities.
Counting on you to run for office or help recruit women in your area to run.
Counting on you to help raise money.
Counting on you to educate women and voters on important issues like health care, Medicaid
expansion, pay equity.
Counting on you to get involved and one of the best ways to make that happen is attending
the annual meeting of the NFDW and get to know women from all over the United States. It is
a great way to share ideas, learn new techniques, and develop goals to reach within your own
So mark your calendars, share the date and look for more information to come your way soon.
