Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women


The Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women is an organization of women Democrat activists in Tennessee in support of the National Federation of Democratic Women. Our Democratic Women activists strongly support the Democratic Party agenda on the local, state, and nation levels.

Women Democrats support issues and causes related to feminism, civil rights, labor, healthcare, government transparency, education, technology and the environment. We actively participate online and in our communities to guard, educate and activate to make sure that individual rights are protected, equality is maintained, and bigotry doesn't win. We work to support Democrat candidates seeking to run for office, and we support Democrats that are currently in office.
The state chapter of the Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women is divided into three Grand Divisions: East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee and West Tennessee. Each grand division has county chapters headed by club presidents. Every socially conscious individual, especially women, are encouraged to be active in their community, as big change often starts with a little change.

If there is not a local chapter in your respective counties, or if there are any questions, please message us, or one of our supporting pages on Facebook and twitter. Our websites/pages are monitored 24/7, in some instances. Serious inquiries WILL be responded to at the earliest opportunity. We will be more than happy to answer your questions about the Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women, direct you to the appropriate person to answer any questions you may have about the National Federation of Democratic Women, Tennessee voting, politics, the Tennessee Democrat Party, National Democratic Party and/or future Democratic Party candidates seeking the presidency of the United States when applicable.

 Federation sisters,

Thank you! My feedback is that everyone enjoyed our National Federation Of Democratic Women Southern Regional Conference which was hosted by the Tennessee Federation Of Democratic Women.

We were so pleased that there were Federation sisters present from thirteen of the fifteen states that make up the Southern Region of the National Federation of Democratic Women.

I humbly thank NFDW President, Susanna French, and NFDW Southern Regional Director, Barbara Faison for their trust and confidence entrusted in me and our Executive Board to get the job done. I must also thank them for all of their help, as well.

Our Middle Tennessee Vice President, Mary Linden Salter, did an outstanding job with the Conference program book, the hotel, the menu, the decorations, securing two of our great guest speakers, TN State Representative, Sherry Jones, and Nashville and Davidson County Metro Council member, Fabian Bedne. Mary assisted with anything else I asked her to do, thank you.

To those who assisted Leslie, Former Federation President, Peggy Monroe, TFDW West TN Vice President, Telise Turner, TFDW Tresurer, Khristy Wilkinson, TFDW Recording Secretary, Kim Walker, and anyone else I may have missed. That, of course, include all of those who support us by donating, and purchasing items.
