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.

Humanitarian Award

NFDW Convention 2018

This is happening in our great country. Federation sisters, as you know, America is better than this. Please focus your clubs on REGISTERING, and encouraging our young people to VOTE!

Federation sisters, I reconnected with Dr. Charlotte Staggs on June 30, 2018 at a fundraiser in Hickman County.  Sisters, Dr. Staggs is coming back!

Those of you that remember her, know what an asset she was to our great organization. We are working, we are reaching out, and together, we will continue making a difference, TOGETHER.

Welcome back!, Dr. Staggs.

The Trump administration is forcing children as young as toddlers to represent themselves in immigration courts.

Federation sisters, as Tennessee Republicans seeking office attempt to use "smoke and mirrors, along with "buzz words" like Nancy Pelosi, this is the reality facing hard working TENNESSEE Farmers. Nancy Pelosi didn't do this, Donald Trump and the Republican Party did.

Spread the word, that The Tennessee Democratic Party has good candidates seeking office. Their focus is on the hard working people of Tennessee. *Please watch video below.

The Tennessee legislature has $29 million in funds specifically set aside for improvements to election security -- but chose to do nothing to protect our votes.  #BlueWave2018

Joe Trotter,(c) President of the Humphrey County Democratic Women's Club just called me very excited! Their club was installed in March of this year. President Trotter was excited because their club had just received a check  anonymously from a donor in Virginia. The donor, is someone that has been following their club on Face book! The donor was impressed by how hard they are working, and decided to make a donation.

Ladies, we as Democratic Women Activists may sometimes feel that no one is listening, or appreciate our hard work and best efforts, keep working! You never know who is watching, or how deeply your Club's work is appreciated. Thank you, Humphrey County for your hard work on behalf of your county, The Tennessee Democratic Party, and The Federation of Democratic Women.

Glenda F. Carter, TFDW President

So much for the walk back. The troubling reality is that President Trump trusts Vladimir Putin more than the dedicated men and women serving in America’s intelligence services.

While, Brett Kavanaugh went on to be confirmed to the United States Supreme Court, ALL is not lost. It just became even more critical than ever, that we must get out the vote on November 6, 2018. Senator Tammy Duckworth said it best in her statement below.
