REPUBLICAN WOMEN FEDERATED
Specializing in empowering our communities by promoting the recruitment and election of Republicans to local, state, and national political offices.
I AM A REPUBLICAN BECAUSE
The Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideas into positive successful principles of government.
The United States of America is unlike any other nation on earth.
America is exceptional because of our historic role - first refuge, then as defender, and now as exemplar of liberty for the word to see.
Our constitutional system - limited government, separation of powers, federalism, and the rights of the people - must be preserved and not compromised for future generations.
Political freedom and economic freedom are indivisible
People are the ultimate resource and the people, not the government, are the best stewards of our country's God-given natural resources.
As an American and a Republican, we wish for peace - so we insist on strength. We will make America safe. We seek friendship with all peoples and all nations, but we recognize and are prepared to deal with evil in the world.
ORWF (Orlando Republican Women Federated) is the oldest Republican Women's club in the state of Florida, formed in 1924 as the Republican Round Table. The first president was Grace Van Vranken. In 1932, the club opened the Republican headquarters for the Herbert Hoover campaign and staffed it daily. Dues were reduced from fifty cents to twenty five cents during the Depression. In 1939, the club joined the National Federation of Republican Women and the name changed to the Orange County Women's Republican Club, Federated. Grace Van Vranken died in 1967 at the age of 97.
The club joined the National Republican Women's Network and the Florida Women's Political Network in 2007 and the name changed to the Orlando Republican Women's Network (ORWN). In 2018, the club reclaimed the Federated name (ORWF) and who now stand arm and arm with strong Republican women across the country who fight for what they believe. For over 90 years, our members have formed bonds that will last a lifetime.
Special Message from our President
Today, more than ever we must unite to ensure the prosperity of our communities. I truly look forward to meeting each and one of you and introducing new members to our wonderful club. Together we will continue to promote and grow Republican leadership in our region.
President Carolina Amesty
