About Us

The Johnson County Democratic Women’s organization is alive and kicking! We are dedicated to promoting a vibrant Democratic Party in Johnson County and the state of Kansas. We are from all walks of life, from that of career professionals, stay-at-home moms and retirees, yet we share a common bond in encouraging civic participation.

Our Mission:

  • Encouraging more active citizen participation in the Democratic Party.
  • Offering educational experiences in the political process and current issues.
  • Encouraging full participation of women at every level of the Democratic party structure.
  • Taking an active role in providing financial assistance to Democratic candidates.

JCDW seeks to help shape public policy, by educating ourselves about issues as well as the positions of those who seek to serve us in public life. As Democrats, we are dedicated to promoting women who seek public office or pursue leadership roles within Party organizations.

We are an integral part of the resurgence of the Democratic Party in Johnson County! Our membership is steadily growing, reflecting the desire for change throughout our society. As we move toward future elections, we will be drawing on the various talents and skills of our vibrant members. We invite you to fully participate in improving the lives of our community by supporting Democratic candidates and our Party’s stand on important issues such as health care, education and the economy.

“Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” he said.“But it’s really just a piece of parchment. It has no power on its own. We, the people, give it power – with our participation, and the choices we make. Whether or not we stand up for our freedoms. Whether or not we respect and enforce the rule of law. America is no fragile thing. But the gains of our long journey to freedom are not assured.” Barack Obama
