OUR HISTORY

history.jpg

San Francisco Democratic Women in Action was established in October 2007. Since our beginning, we have always been true to our mission and supported needs and concerns of women, children, and families living in San Francisco. 

From our first membership meeting, to our latest membership meeting "Issues to Action" in June 2013, we have provided the San Francisco community with a platform for women’s issues. We have also made it clear to San Francisco’s candidates and politicians that we are serious with our concerns and that we value leadership in these areas.
