In Alaska, the Mat-Su Republican Women’s Club was organized in the 1940’s and became affiliated with the National Federation of Republican Women before the Alaska Federation was established in 1962. Both Ketchikan and Juneau had active Republican Women’s clubs in the 1950’s. Today, the 500+ member Alaska Federation has ten clubs around the state.
The Alaska Federation of Republican Women (AFRW) recruits, educates, trains, supports and elects Republicans. Members participate in fundraising and campaign activities that inform people about our candidates, issues, and Republican values.
Our Republican women are committed to strengthening our Republican Party, empowering Republican women, and creating a better future for our children and grandchildren.
In addition to working on political campaigns, AFRW hosts events for Alaska’s all-Republican Congressional delegation, our Republican state legislators, and other Republican leaders in our state. We also participate in the Barbara Bush Literacy Project, support our troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we raise funds to support our candidates and projects.
