Philosophy

The Lake County Democratic Independent Women is dedicated to supporting and empowering women candidates in Lake County.  LCDIW is a grassroots organization in the truest sense, and that is our greatest strength. We are united in purpose and our passion to make a difference keeps us growing each day.

Women make up 51% of the population, but only 20% of elected officials. Research shows that women candidates have more trouble running for office. We’re here to level the playing field.  We do so through helping candidates financially, providing strategic advisement and executing grassroots action in the streets.

Standing together makes our communities stronger. Together we fight for choice, improving education, fiscal responsibility, lower taxes, protecting worker’s rights, small business, equality and health care for all.

Yes, you should run. No, you don’t have to go it alone.
