All About The
Democratic Women of Wake County
In the spring of 1961 several women who were members of the North Carolina Democratic Party became interested in forming a statewide organization for Democratic Women. They started building the organization county by county, allowing each county to have one club.
The Democratic Women of Wake County (DWWC) evolved as an auxiliary group of the Wake County Democratic Party and the Democratic Women of North Carolina.
Over the years times changed, expressions changed, and the roles and references to women’s rights and duties changed, but the Democratic values of the Democratic Women of North Carolina and DWWC, remain the same.
1. To support and promote the principles of the Democratic Party
2. To encourage women to seek public office and to participate in Democratic Party activities.
3. To work with the North Carolina Democratic Party Executive Committee to strengthen the Democratic party in North Carolina
4. To assist in organizing and maintaining active Democratic Women’s organizations at the state, district and county levels.
5. To initiate and carry out programs and projects on behalf of the Democratic Party, and to promote the election of Democrat
There are many reasons why Democratic women (and Men) join DWWC – here are just a few:
Elected Officials – show our support for those candidates who share our goals and values; and take an active role in their campaigns.
Membership and Meetings – experience the fellowship we gain at our monthly meetings and learn about political and social issues affecting our County and State.
Local Community – participate in volunteer efforts to assist and increase local resources in the Wake County communities within DWWC.
We have not stop moving, investing, leading, marching, voting and fighting for the rights of all citizens across North Carolina. Our Constitution of the United States and The Bill of Rights is on the line. We must keep our Democractic Party Leadership in office.
