Democratic Women’s Alliance

Share This

The Democratic Women’s Alliance’s (DWA) primary focus is to grow and engage the number of women involved in the party at all levels from those who want to make educated decisions at the ballot box to women who decide to run for office.

The DWA is the latest chapter in the Democratic Party’s long commitment to activating more women. It serves as the Democratic Party’s formal coalition of organizations and leaders who have made it their mission to amplify women’s voices in politics. These coalition partners share the common goal to advance the issues and concerns important to women in the body politic and to mobilize women activists, engage women voters and train future Democratic political leaders. The Democratic Women’s Alliance was first conceived during the 2012 Presidential campaign. It has since been formalized and in the last few months, the DWA has enacted partnerships with the DNC Women’s Caucus, the Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF) and other DNC entities, and outside allied groups to accomplish strategic objectives.
