Democratic Women’s Alliance

DWA Programs

The Democratic Women’s Alliance will be a central hub to mobilize, engage, and train Democratic women in politics. Looking forward, we know we have tough elections ahead, and the Alliance will be crucial in helping us win. Under the leadership of DNC Chair, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic Women’s Alliance will build on our strong support from women voters to accomplish strategic objectives that will ensure electoral success in 2014 and 2016, and promote women's leadership within the Democratic Party.

The Democratic Women’s Alliance will work with women in all 50 states through state parties to engage our network of grassroots supporters to make sure women nationwide are ready and equipped to actively support Democratic values and help elect Democrats up and down the ballot. As we gear up for the 2014 midterm elections, the Democratic Women’s Alliance will focus on three central goals: mobilizing, engaging, and training women.

Mobilize

Women represent a strong base a support for the Democratic Party, but we must continue to expand this base by reaching out to more women through targeted, data driven initiatives. The Alliance will invest in research, polling and analysis centered on women voters and the issues they care about most.

Engage

Locating new Democratic women and bringing them into the political process is only the beginning. The Alliance will ensure that this network of supporters is armed with the information they need to successfully fight for the causes they care about.

Train

The Democratic Women’s Alliance will provide training opportunities to women in all 50 states, and provide an infrastructure for continued training at the community level through the establishment of neighborhood teams, town hall meetings and round tables. The DWA will also work to recruit more Democratic female leaders who can actively lead our state parties, become party delegates, and run for elected office.
