championing democratic Women of south jersey

The South Jersey Democratic Women's Forum (SJDWF) Atlantic Cape is a chapter of the New Jersey Federation of Democratic Women.

We are an organization of dedicated women committed to supporting each other and advancing Democratic political goals through networking, community activism, and engagement.

We know Democratic women bring skill and compassion to government at every level, but we are under-represented.

Our goal is to help women engage in the political process to create a government for and by the people. Join us!
