The Connecticut Federation of Democratic Women will be celebrating the 85th anniversary of this organization next year. A gala event is being planned to celebrate this wonderful milestone. They were founded in 1922 by Fannie Dixon Welch.
It is possible that this is the oldest Federation in the US. Watch for event details to be posted soon.
URGENT ACTION REQUIRED

FOR SERVERAL YEARS NFDW HAS RAISED THE ISSUE OF VOTING RIGHTS FOR THE CITIZENS OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL RESOLUTIONS & AFFIRMATIONS OF OUR SUPPORT FOR THE DISENFRANCHISED RESIDENTS WHO CANNOT EXERCISE THEIR DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS.

AT LAST THERE IS A BILL PENDING IN THE HOUSE. HR5388, THAT WILL GIVE D.C. A VOTING REPRESENTATIVE. THE BILL ALSO KNOW AS THE DAVIS/NORTON BILL IS NOW PENDING IN THE HOUSE & IF PASSED WILL GO ON TO THE SENATE.

PLEASE ASK YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TO VOTE FOR THIS BILL.
