Welcome to the new Democratic Women of Clifton website. We hope that you will find the information here helpful and that you will visit us often. We invite all Northern Virginia Democrats to attend our meetings, participate in our events, and join our organization. Any group is only as good as its members, so please let us know your thoughts and any information you would like to share with us. And most importantly, volunteer your time and talents to help elect Democrats.

Please help us fulfill our mission:

The Democratic Women of Clifton (DWC) is dedicated to providing a friendly forum in which Democratic women educate themselves, discuss important issues of the day, and work together to help elect Democrats to local, state, and national offices. The DWC strives to build political awareness among members of our community, influence public policy, promote participation in political processes, and encourage connections between regional leaders and the Clifton community.

Chair, DWC
