Welcome to the official website of the Shoreline League of Democratic Women. The organization’s charter is to establish a social and political fellowship to unite Democratic women along the Connecticut shoreline. The SLDW focuses on issues important to women of all ages. Our objectives are to:

UNITE women to support and advance the principles of the  Democratic Party

ENCOURAGE growth of a well-informed electorate

PROMOTE full participation of women in every level of the Democratic Party structure

The Shoreline League of Democratic Women seeks membership from women who live in Clinton, Madison, Guilford, Branford, Killingworth, Old Saybrook, Essex, Centerbrook, Ivoryton, Westbrook, Chester, Deep River, Old Lyme, and Lyme. The group is involved in state and national elections.


Dear SLDW Members and Friends,

We head into 2018 energized by our many wins this past Fall season. Now, we look ahead. Many of us headed to the Women's Marches and came home inspired by our fellow activists and filled with hope and pride. The Women's March movement has not faltered, it has grown BIGGER. TIME Magazine just featured a cover of 48 women who marched last year, and now these first-timers are running for office!

While Trump and the Republicans were shutting down the government on Saturday, January 20, Women from coast to coast were HOLDING UP DEMOCRACY!

Deeds, not words, will change the world. Join us. We are gearing up for the Mid-term Elections, so sign up for our emails at

#ReSISTERHOOD, Solidarity, Sanity and Science,
Belinda Jones, President, Shoreline League of Democratic Women
