The VDWC invites and encourages all Democratic women in Virginia to join us as members of our caucus. We need your help as we work to unite the women of Virginia in support of the women of the Democratic Party and its candidates; encourage full and equal participation of women in the Party; encourage, educate, and help finance Democratic women who aspire to public office; and raise awareness of women’s issues in the Commonwealth and the Virginia Democratic Party.
