The Republican Women of Southwest Louisiana was chartered in 1990 as an affiliate club of the Louisiana Federation of Republican Women (LFRW) and the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW). Our club centers around Lake Charles, Louisiana and includes cities within the parishes of Calcasieu and Cameron, although members outside this area may join. Our club belongs to Region 3 of the LFRW. Part of our membership dues are sent to the LFRW and, in turn, to the NFRW. Thus each member of our local club automatically becomes a member of the state and national clubs when we annually send in our membership rolls and dues.
Are You Social? We are.
Our Organizations Objectives:
Promote an informed electorate through political education and activity.
Increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
Foster loyalty to the Republican Party and to promote its principles and ideas.
Support Republican objectives and policies and work for the election of Republican nominees.
What we do
We stay updated and educated on current political issues by holding a monthly lunch meeting. We invite various guest speakers through out the year that provide information on national, state or local interest. Our members leave feeling unified to promote the principles and ideas of the Republican Party.
Our club also is actively involved in initiatives adopted by our state and national federation. The Republican Women of Southwest Louisiana provide the funds and volunteer hours for Pillows for Troops, the Dictionary Project, and the Marie Key Martin Scholarship. Our organization also oversees the local Republican Headquarters for key elections. This is a huge undertaking of time and volunteer hours to set up and staff each day during elections.
When Republican women get mobilized, look out! We can get it done!
