Hello, Roanoke Valley Democratic Women members past, present, and future! 

As we near the end of winter and the first quarter of 2024, I’ll admit I don’t have strong enough language to express how important this election year is and what it means for the stability of the country, to equality, to democracy. Without a doubt, Democratic women are key to winning in November!

The goal of Roanoke Valley Democratic Women (RVDW) is to ensure that you, our members, are up to date on topics and issues that interest you and are aligned with our “Big D” Democratic values. We aim to inform you about local, statewide, and national Democratic candidates and to offer a forum for social and political engagement, as last year’s busy schedule attests. Already this year we’ve heard from dynamic speakers Roanoke City Sheriff Antonio D. Hash, Roanoke Chapter NAACP President Dr. Brenda Hale, and Professor of History Dr. Ivonne Wallace Fuentes. We’ve supported actions to reduce gun violence and continue to press for necessary changes in our region. We have much more to come – at membership meetings, Dems After Dark, special actions, candidate Meet & Greets, and voter registration and GOTV efforts as voting season draws closer.

I’ll be blunt. What happens this year – in our local, state, and national politics – will determine if we progress or go backwards! Together, we make a difference. Let’s work together to learn, act, and make our voices heard! Please join us and share this invitation with your friends and family across the Roanoke Valley. The work of RVDW is dependent on your voice, support, and involvement! 

Thank you in advance for your new or renewed membership in Roanoke Valley Democratic Women. I look forward to seeing you and standing strong beside you in 2024!
