Women’s Leadership Forum

A crucial part of the Democratic Party, the Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF) was founded in 1993 and aims to raise money as a tool to support the President’s agenda and engage women in our democracy. It also aims to provide more information about local Democratic activities as well as opportunities to hear from and interact with party leaders.

The WLF is engaged in a wide array of political activities, providing its members with substantive information, discussion, and action. This includes an annual issues conference, regional events that share/present policy initiatives, opportunities to raise political awareness and cultivate new members, an opportunity to participate in conference calls with policy and political leaders, and much more.
