About Us Header 2017

Our Mission
Women Organizing Women Democrats (WOW Dems) is a North Texas-based organization dedicated to expanding the participation of women in politics: increasing their political engagement; raising awareness about women’s issues; and recruiting, supporting, and electing women Democrats for partisan and non-partisan offices.

Membership
WOW Dems is a membership organization and general purpose political action committee. Annual membership donation levels are set at $30, $60 and $120 or monthly contributions in the amount of choice.

WOW Dems Candidate Endorsement Policy
WOW Dems may endorse and/or fund as many progressive women candidates as may appear on the ballot. No candidate will be endorsed in uncontested races. WOW may choose to oppose a candidate. WOW encourages progressive women candidates to support other progressive women candidates, not oppose them. However, WOW, at its sole discretion, may choose to endorse or not if such a situation presents itself.

Writing Op-Ed Letters

As WOW Dems we lend our voices to issues including the current political climate, women’s rights, social justice, education, healthcare and more. Help us highlight these important issues by writing letters to the Dallas Morning News and other local media outlets. Please try your hand at it, and send it to us! If you want to remain anonymous that’s okay. If you want to send directly to the press that’s great too!  If you’ve already done so, please tell us and we’ll reprint here!

Here are some examples of such op-eds that others have written.
