DWSC


In lieu of our next monthly meeting in September (we always skip August), we will be having a picnic!  It will be on September 25th. Details coming soon!  


The Democratic Women of Shelby County have released a statement in support of State Representative Gloria Johnson, a Democratic woman elected to serve the citizens of  Tennessee Legislative District 13, Knox County.  Representative Johnson voted against the election of Cameron Sexton, a Republican State Representative, as the Speaker of the House, and he has been enagaging in abusive conduct and bullying her ever since that vote.  The DWSC joins others in supporting Representative Johnson and condemning the reprehensible and bullying actions of Speaker Sexton.  Please see the entire statement below, and sign this petition calling for Sexton's abuse to stop.  Equity for TN State Rep Gloria Johnson

Please see the calendar below for additional related events.
We will not post candidate information in primary races unless there is no democratic opponent.  
Nor will we post candidate information in nonpartisan races 
We are proud of our Democratic candidates participating in the various races. 
We “DO NOT “ endorse in Primaries and the sheer number makes it impossible to list all campaign activities. 
We do however wish them all the  best and pledge our collective support in the General Election.
