Uniting and Empowering Women with an Informed Voice of Influence
Dear Members and Friends,

Happy New Year and welcome to 2020!  And what a year this will be. Already our legislature has introduced 1000+ bills. Republicans are working against bigger government, higher taxes, and policies that seek to undermine your constitutional rights. Their mantra this year is It's Your Home, Expect More - #YourHomeExpectMore. House Republicans have a new website to keep you informed, click here to try it out - The Ledger. *See other resources below. For the latest from Senate Republicans, follow their website here: Senate Republican Caucus - Republicans Are Working For All Washington.

A recent editorial from the New York Times says Republican women are extinct, but we know that is not true. It is just what the left wants us to believe. Everyday we are stepping up to the plate to advocate, to educate and to lead. We are activists! We are not bench warmers; we are standing in the crowds cheering and making our values heard. My challenge to you is to be the best activist you can be. Be determined and step up like never before. We do not want the left to be the sole voice for American women. As Republican women we do make a difference. Get involved with your local club, keep current on issues, encourage your legislators and stand firm.
A good way to start off the year is by attending WFRW's Day at the Capitol, hosted by Thurston County Republican Women's Club. More information about this event is below.
Our freedoms are at stake, let us all lead right, and make our vision for 2020 clear and focused. #Vision2020

All my best to you!
