All About VFRW
The Virginia Federation of Republican Women (VFRW) is a member of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW). Founded in 1938, the NFRW is a grassroots political organization with thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories.
Once an auxiliary of the Republican National Committee, the NFRW is a completely independent, self-supporting organization today. We are our own entity.
Chartered in 1953, the Virginia Federation of Republican Women (VFRW) maintains a strong voice in the Commonwealth. There are 65 clubs throughout the 11 districts of Virginia. The VFRW continues to grow in size and strength providing a vehicle for women concerned with the direction of our government. We strive to inform the public through political education and activity and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
We welcome all Americans who believe in respect for the Constitution, family values, limited government, personal responsibility, low taxes, fiscal responsibility, honest and accountable government, individual initiative and free enterprise.
It is our goal to support and foster the principles of America's founding fathers and to elect Republican that share our values and goals.
