Democratic Women’s Alliance

Why the DNC?

The DNC is uniquely positioned to operate the Democratic Women’s Alliance through the national Party’s established state and local infrastructure and networks. The DWA brings in additional allies in the progressive community and collaborates with existing organizations that are already doing fantastic work to advance women in politics.

The DNC, through the Association of State Democratic Chairs and the State Party Partnership, has already invested in strategic, institutional resources to build a network among all 50 states to engage their grassroots supporters and state leaders to make sure women nationwide are actively engaged.
