“I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. That's were the fun is.”


― Donald Trump

At the time of the National Federation of Republican Womens’s founding in 1938, three states – Maryland, Virginia, and Alabama – had not even ratified the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting suffrage to women. The campaign of 1936 had reelected Franklin D. Roosevelt over Alf Landon with only two states – Maine and Vermont – going Republican. There were only six Republican governors, 89 Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives, and 16 in the Senate.  And yet the NFRW – born in a climate of defeat – grew in size and strength, providing a vehicle for women concerned with the direction of our government. In its earliest days, the Federation was a lobbying group. It was also an auxiliary of the Republican National Committee. Today, the NFRW is financially and organizationally independent.  It is the largest all-women political organization in the world with thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation.


The California Federation of Republican Women, which is affiliated with the National Federation of Republican Women, is the largest State Federation in the Country.


The California Federation of Republican Women – Southern Division has over 85 Republican Women Federated clubs from Santa Barbara all the way to our Southern border..


The Los Angeles Federation of Republican Women has 32 RWF clubs.


The Long Beach Republican Women Federated is thriving. We are one of the most active Republican Women Federated groups in Los Angeles County. We had the most new members in Southern Division and Los Angeles County in 2015. We proudly have several office holders as members. We also have members who have run for office and members and alternates on the Assembly District 70 Central Committee. We have fun meetings with informative guest speakers and we are always ready to help Elect REPUBLICANS by:


1. Staying informed and informing others.

2. Volunteering for precinct walking.

3. Volunteering for phone banking.

4. Assisting with voter registration.

5. Assisting with GOTV operations.

6. Hosting “Meet the Candidate” coffees .

7. When possible, provide individual donations.
