About Us

Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest and most influential women's active grassroots political organization in the United States. Once an auxiliary of the Republican National Committee, the NFRW is financially and organizationally independent today, while still being recognized as the women’s arm of the Republican Party in the United States.

The members of the NvFRW work to:

  • Promote an informed public through political education and activity

  • Increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government;

  • Facilitate cooperation among the national, state and club organizations;

  • Foster loyalty to the Republican Party and promote its principles and candidates in all elections, including non-partisan elections; and,

  • Support Republican objectives and policies and work for the election of Republican nominees.

In working toward these objectives, the NFRW concentrates its efforts in the areas of education, communication, and legislative action as well as political recruitment, campaigning, fundraising, and training.

In Nevada, the Nevada Federation of Republican Women (NvFRW) was formed in 1961 with 3 clubs.  Nevada now has 20 individual clubs with over 1500 members.

Joining a local club is a great way to participate in the political process at the grassroots level and to network with other women in your community. By paying dues to her local club, a Republican woman automatically becomes a member of her state federation and of the National Federation of Republican Women.

Membership in the National Federation of Republican Women is an opportunity for women to find their voice and make a difference. As a member of a local club, every Republican woman has a voice in that club, as well as in both her state federation and the NFRW.

WELCOME MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT DIANE BARANOWSKI

Welcome to the Nevada Federation of Republican Women website! Nevada is home to sixteen clubs dedicated to the Federation’s mission of educating women about all facets of the political process, whether in their local community, across the State of Nevada or at the National level. 

The wonderful opportunity that IS the Federation of Republican Women is that once you join a local club, you are automatically a member of the Nevada State Federation of Republican Women AND the National Federation of Republican Women which is based in Alexandria, Virginia.  All three levels offer members an incredible array of opportunities, resources and connections to get involved to your heart’s content, be heard and make a difference!

By working together we can help unify Republican voters to get more Republicans elected to local, state and national offices. We Republican women are committed to sharing the Republican ideals and principles that we know make for better government in America. We believe that our conservative values are critically important in our homes, our culture, our elected officials and in our government.

If you are not a member yet of a Republican Women’s club I suggest you look around this website, find your region’s club address and schedule and go visit one of their lunch or dinner meetings. You will meet informed Republican women, hear an engaging speaker - very likely one of Nevada’s elected officials - and mingle with like-minded people who you will find are interested in the very same issues that you are. Our clubs always welcome Republican women, from millennials to those born earlier, who want to help get Republicans elected! We also welcome Republican men to become Associate Members.  We need you, your skills and knowledge.  Join us as we all work together on legislative issues, assorted projects, plans and parties to get the job done! We welcome you and look forward to meeting you. 

Diane Baranowski
President, Nevada Federation of Republican Women 2018-2019
