Democratic Women's Information Network

 Welcome.  Rejoice!

The Democratic Women’s Information Network, DWIN, is dedicated to its mission: “Growing a network of energized, talented, informed Democratic Women on the First Coast who nurture and tap the power of women to elect more Democrats and more Women.”                                                                      

DWIN was chartered in 2003 by the Democratic Women’s Club of Florida (DWCF) and the National Federation of Democratic Women (NFDW)

Fifteen years later, our theme: “Let PEACE begin with me.  Let this be the moment now.” – from “Let There Be Peace on Earth” affirms that we are indeed “peace consciousness” itself. This awareness will show us how we are truly “Stronger Together” as we mindfully persist in full faith and confidence to advance our democratic values and principles into a sustainable future. 

Democratic Women’s Information Network Officers and Members have consistently participated in every aspect of our organization’s local, state, and national programs and projects, legislation and advocacy, to expand and strengthen our grassroots growth from research and development to implementation. What follows is a listing of DWIN accomplishments in collaboration with DWCF, FDP, DCDEC, DEDBC, DCDHC, DCDSC, JYD, JAXEquality, NOW. 

Finally, DWIN will host six SIGNATURE Luncheons on the 2nd Wednesdays:  February 8, April 12, June 14, August 9, October 11, December 13.

2017 DWIN Membership Action Meetings, where we connect, we learn, and we strategize with invited elected officials, candidates and speakers who are experts in their fields.  Action Meetings will be on the 4th Wednesdays at 6:00 pm:  March 22, May 24, July 26, September 27, November TBC, at the IBEW, 966 N Liberty St.  We look forward to greeting YOU.

    Hello. I joined DWIN in February and sorry I could not attend the March 22 meeting. I would like to get connected with the network so that I receive all communications to the general membership. How is this possible? Is there something more I need to do?
