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 are energized for the Fall Election season. We urge all Valley-Shoreline Democratic women to get involved with our great organization and help get Democrats elected at the local level. We have excellent, strong women running for office at the local level. Let's help them get over the goal line. Deeds not words will change our world.

Check out our Fall Event lineup. We will be making more announcements soon!

#ReSISTERHOOD, Solidarity, Sanity and Science,
