Greater Atlanta Democratic Women, is an official Democratic Women’s organization serving the greater Atlanta area. Voters who live in Fulton County and any of the bordering counties of Fulton are eligible for membership. GADW was organized by long-time Democrat Mindy Boggs, who currently serves as the first Chapter President. On August 26, 2019 GADW was chartered by the Georgia Federation of Democratic Women(GFDW) and has since grown to become one of the largest, and most active Federation chapters in the state. The 501 c 4 organization’s by-laws are approved by the State Federation which is under the National Federation of Democratic Women. Since the state and national Federation organizations are chartered by our national Democratic Party, there are permanent seats on both the state & national Democratic Committees reserved for the leadership of these organizations- which assures these coveted designated voting seats will always be occupied by WOMEN.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we are meeting virtually until further notice, generally on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. However, since we face an intense election season, we anticipate hosting and sharing many events - please check the website and/or Facebook page frequently! All members will also receive periodic email updates.
GADW joins with March On Georgia to launch a series of workshops about racism and the solutions for ending racial discrimination in education, the justice system, interpersonal relationships, economic institutions, and voting. In addition to the diversity of the organizers, the workshops will feature women from a variety of backgrounds and experiences who are committed to taking advantage of the current environment to "reach, teach, and lead." The July 30 digital event will also present curated anti-racism resources and specific calls to action for everyone interested in self-awareness and personal growth.
