From the President...
Marin Republican Women Federated (MRWF) is a group of almost 200 members, and one of approximately 155 clubs in the California Federation of RepublicanWomen (CFRW). All federated clubs are automatic members of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), an organization that greatly expands our voice and clout on the national level. National and regional conferences aid in running the club.
Members are Republican women; we are joined by associate members, who are members of another federated club, Republican men and non-citizens. Monthly speaker luncheons are usually held on the 4th Wednesday of the month (dark July, August and December). Luncheons are held at The Club Restaurant at McInnis Park (San Rafael) from 11:30 – 1:00 p.m.
Through a yearly fundraiser, sizable contributions have been made to various organizations and causes. In past years, some of the organizations supported are Wounded Warriors, Troops Direct, Fischer House, Gilead House (a local group aiding abused women and their children), The Marin Youth Court, Marin’s St. Vincent’s School for Boys’ capital building fund, Move America Forward, and programs for conservative young people (RAP – Restore America’s Promise) and the Young America’s Foundation Conference in Washington, D.C.
We also support the Mamie Eisenhower Library Project and various scholarship programs. Additionally, we assist the Marin GOP in phone banks, fair booths and other outreach programs. Voter registration events in the spring and fall make us visible to the public and promote discussion and commentary.
A new meet-up group called Conservative Curious was recently started by several members. It is drawing people who want civil discourse about issues that are of current interest to them.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing conservative ideas and conversation!
Kathryn Thompson, President
