Mobilizing women to engage in the political
process and run for office at every level of government
Welcome to the CDWC Website!
We are still
reeling from the recent, devastating Supreme Court decision to remove the fundamental right to control of our own bodies.
The court has also favored tax support for religious schools and expanded gun rights. Still to come is a critical environmental
ruling. All this (and more) means that the midterm elections in November are more important than ever. In the face of the extreme Republican agenda, it is crucial that we elect Democrats at every level of government in Ohio. Please do all you can, from
offering financial support to personal volunteering. The CDWC will continue to inform you of ways you can participate.
