Democratic Women of the Desert, under charter from the County Democratic Central Committee, is dedicated to promoting social, economic and political policies that reflect the priorities of women. We do this by: educating members on women’s issues; increasing members’ political awareness; increasing political participation of women in the community; actively recruiting women of all ages to become DWD members; and raising campaign contributions for candidates who support DWD’s Mission.
We stand for human rights and social justice. We believe in equal opportunity without the exclusion of any citizen or resident. We are committed to the rule of law and public election of governmental officeholders by Democratic process. We believe that the voting franchise gives us the power to effectuate change and ensure the human rights and social justice will not become subverted by an unjust government as the founding fathers of the Republic had envisioned. We encourage action and the fair sharing of responsibility for the improvements of our community and society as an integrated whole.
