Empowering Democratic Women in Dutchess County Since 2005

The Dutchess Democratic Women’s Caucus is a proactive grassroots organization dedicated to helping identify, train and elect qualified female Democrats to public office at the state, county, city, town, and village levels and to encourage every woman Democrat to become politically active.

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

Women make up 50.8% of the US population but just…

35% of Dutchess County Town Supervisors

24% of Dutchess County Legislators

20% of Dutchess County Elected Officials

35% of NY State Assembly Members

29% of NY State Senators

27% of Members of the US Congress

Join us in our quest to transform regional politics for the better by electing smart, compassionate, knowledgeable, and inspired Democrats.
