VA Federation of Republican Women “Storm the Hill”
-- Conservative female citizens from across the Commonwealth advocate with their legislators --
CENTRAL VA- On Thursday, January 11, 2018 nearly 100 members of the Virginia Federation of Republican Women (VFRW) from across the Commonwealth, converged upon the Virginia Capitol and General Assembly Building (GAB) to advocate for policies and legislation reflective of their shared conservative principles.
VFRW’s vision is to help build and maintain a nation and a Commonwealth governed by the principles of the Republican Party, including: a productive, free enterprise economic system; equal rights, justice, and opportunity for all citizens; fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraint at all levels; the preservation of individual liberty; peace through strength; and a recognition that Faith is essential to the moral fiber of the Nation.
Attendees visited the General Assembly offices of their elected officials and expressed their position on policies related to school choice, strengthening families, increased services to veterans and support for law enforcement, protection of life at all stages, homeland security, women in business, opioid intervention and prevention, and many more.
“Our members are committed to communicating our shared conservative principles with their state elected officials that represent them in both the Virginia House of Delegates and Virginia Senate,” asserted Ellen Nau, VFRW President.
Nau continued, “Our VFRW women have strong voices, are community leaders, are mothers and grandmothers that lead by example. It is important for us to continue to be active and engaged not only in the election of our Republican candidates, but to also aid in the promotion of common sense conservation legislation that will continue to improve the quality of life of women and families across our great Commonwealth.”
The Virginia Federation of Republican Women (VFRW) is a diverse group of Patriotic Women that was chartered in 1953, and is a member of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), which is one of the largest political volunteer organizations in the country. Similarly, the VFRW is the largest such organization in the Commonwealth of Virginia. With nearly 2,000 members and 62 active clubs the VFRW exerts an influence on local, state, and federal policy and is a force within the Virginia Republican Party at all levels. Membership in the Virginia Federation is available to all Republican women in the Commonwealth of Virginia through clubs located in all Congressional Districts.
