Who We Are
BRW is affiliated with the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) and Pennsylvania Federation of Republican Women (PFRW), both grassroots organizations of around 100,000 women throughout the country who support Republican candidates and issues at all levels of government. BRW nurtures a powerful network of women in our communities who produce results in elections. We commit ourselves to advancing the participation of Republican Women in all areas of the political system and are dedicated to encouraging and empowering women of all ages and backgrounds. Our goal is strengthening the Republican Party and working to influence the crucial issues that face our communities, state, and nation.
We educate our members on the political process and current issues, assist the GOP in electing qualified Republicans to office, and promote Republican initiatives. This year we are working for the primary and general elections, manning Republican Headquarters, holding voter registration drives and candidate forums. We walk door to door, make thousands of phone calls, and fill in wherever needed. Our members also help individual candidates as campaign managers, fundraisers and general volunteers.
