“Women in Blue” is a proud tradition of our federated clubs which annually choose one day to speak with their legislators about issues that affect their local communities, their states, their country and the world. These issues are wide-ranging but are of particular relevance to women and families. Our NFDW colors are blue and white and the women dress in blue on that day as a symbol of their solidarity. ~ Committee Chair Estell Lloyd contact information: 202-297-2381
