In line with our mission to engage and educate women as well as get Democrats elected in Johnson County, we have formed the following Advocacy Work Groups to further our goals in four key areas.

First, we need to know what’s happening in our local government to be able to take actions that are in line with our values. Second, we need to be intimately familiar and in touch with local Democratic candidates to be able to organize our members to support them in the most helpful ways possible. Third, we know how much Democrats care about their community, and with that in mind, we want to provide opportunities for charitable giving and community service to make our community better. And lastly, we want to have fun! When we get together, we network, learn, teach, and support each other.

The following are our four Advocacy Work Groups. We hope you will choose one and get involved beyond just attending our monthly meetings (which are also amazing!). We ask for a one year commitment, with next open enrollment on December, 2018.
