The WVFRW provides the avenue for women to influence policy, develop candidates, and elect the leaders of West Virginia. We are a multi-generational, multicultural organization that provides the structure and support for political activists to learn, engage, and flourish. The West Virginia Federation of Republican Women actively supports Republican candidates, while providing strength and unity for political action. We encourage Republican women to run for office and train them to become effective Republican Party workers. Our part feels it’s important to inform our members and the electorate through political education.
