Empowering Democratic Women in Dutchess Since 2005

The Dutchess Democratic Women’s Caucus is a scrappy grass roots organization working to elect qualified Democratic women to public office at the state, county, city, town and village levels and to encourage every Democratic woman to become politically active.

Since our founding, we have helped over 300 Dutchess County women seek public office by providing campaign workshops, one-on-one mentoring, and financial support.
