Santa Rosa Republican Women Federated (SRRWF)
Santa Rosa Republican Women was chartered in 1945 as Sonoma County Republican Women with the goal of getting women together so they could discuss a range of political issues ranging from city council elections and actions to the Presidential elections of the United States. The women originally met in their homes. That same year the women became part of the National Federation of Republican Women.
As the county grew, the name was changed to Santa Rosa Republican Women Federated.
SRRWF holds monthly meetings, registers voters, educates it members and friends through their monthly newsletter and stays active in the grassroots organizations that work to elect Republicans from various community boards to the Presidency.
