What We Do
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 nine 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
In addition to working on political campaigns, the AFRW hosts events for Alaska’s all-Republican Congressional delegation, our Republican Governor
and Administration and our Republican state legislators. 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.
