El Paso County Republican Women
The El Paso County Republican Women strive to be an inclusive, friendly and fun organization. We do not subscribe to a litmus test regarding conformity to the party platform. A registered Republican is "Republican enough" for us.
That the right of the individual to achieve the best that is within him, as long as he respects the rights of others, is the source of our Nation's strength.
The government exists to protect the freedom of opportunity in which each individual's creative ability can flourish.
That government activities should be limited to those things with people cannot do at all, or cannot do so well for themselves.
That the most effective government is government closest to the people.
That those who cannot provide for themselves should be assisted by both government and society, but that every effort should be made to help them become self-supporting, productive citizens with pride in their independence.
That equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity belong to all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.
That the preservation of our Nation and the security of our citizens depend upon the Constitution, the laws and the courts, and that respect for them is the responsibility of every individual.
The Government is accountable for maintaining sound money and a responsible economy. Individual rights, liberties and properties are continually eroded when citizens are oppressed by excessive taxation, inflation, government wast and over-regulations.
That it is absolutely essential to maintain a strong national defense posture in order that we may at all times negotiate from a position of strength, not weakness, in our continuing efforts toward world peace and friendship.
That these concepts are the foundation of our national strength and that the Republican Party, which is committed to their preservation, is the Party of Today and the Party of the Future.
In 1938, the Colorado Federation of Republican Women joined with the National Federation of Republican Women, the largest women's political organization in the U.S. Approximately 2,500 women in Colorado are members of the CFRW.
The El Paso County Republican Women's organization is affiliated with both the CFRW and NFRW, but also retains its own identity through participation in local political issues and support of candidates from El Paso County, including Commissioners, District Attorney, Sheriff, Treasurer, Clerk & Recorder, state representatives and senators and representatives to the state and national conventions.
Throughout the year EPCRW provides informational programs at monthly luncheons. We also host fundraisers from time to time. Elected officials often stop by for lunch and frequently are guest speakers. There is constant opportunity to participate in campaigns, help out at Republican Headquarters, network with others who share Republican principles and meet community members who will become leaders of tomorrow.
The abiding objectives of EPCRW and CFRW are to foster and encourage loyalty to the Republican Party, to the principles for which it stands and to promote an informed electorate though political education.
