The Louisiana Federation of Republican Women was founded in 1953 and is the largest grassroots women’s organization in Louisiana. LFRW became affiliated with the National Federation of Republican Women that same year. It is our mission to educate and engage our members politically, empower women to become involved in government and their community, and encourage genuine support for Republican women as candidates, We support the Republican Party, conservatives principles, and are committed to working diligently to help elect Republican candidates. LFRW is a very active Federation divided into 7 Regions with many clubs. Strengthening membership and recruiting new members are always top priorities. Our members take an active role in campaigns at all levels and have developed innovative fundraising ideas to support community service projects. We offer many committees to our members and encourage our members to be active in them. We believe in supporting education through club and federation scholarships, donating books to classrooms and libraries, and presenting programs of civics in the classroom. We support our military and do what we can for them participating in projects honoring them and providing supplies.
Through our Annual Day at the Legislature we visit our legislators at the Capitol. It is wonderful to see the sea of red dispersing all over the Capitol and see our legislators enjoy visiting with their Republican Women constituents. We hold two LFRW Board and Membership Meetings twice each year and a Biennial Convention every two years at which we elect our officers.
LFRW has trained many activists. We provide the means to help our members influence policy and elect the leaders of Louisiana. Many LFRW members hold local and state political offices as well as many positions on local and state boards and parish executive committees. We are proud of the training and encouragement we have given to our Republican Women leaders in Louisiana! We have committed ourselves to taking an active lobbying role in our state's legislative process by staying informed and in close communication with all of our elected officials and by expressing our opinions on the critical decisions that determine the future of our state. Though many challenges lie ahead as Louisiana continues to recover from major hurricanes, flooding, and ice storms, LFRW members hold strong. We believe in the saying, “Republican Women Make a Difference!” We believe that for our government to work effectively YOU must become part of the process. We invite you to join us.
The Louisiana Federation of Republican Women is the largest volunteer women’s political organization in the state with 1800 + members and 35 local clubs statewide. Louisiana chartered with the National Federation of Republican Women in 1953. LFRW is a grassroots organization meeting regularly in local, regional, and statewide conferences and conventions.
