LIBERAL LADIES OF DOUGLAS COUNTY
Liberal Ladies purpose is to network the women of Douglas County (Democrats and all other like-minded women) who can't always make it to the evening meetings because of family commitments. While there are more than 10,000 registered Democrats in Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree, alone too many Democratic women, especially moms, feel isolated. "I thought I was the only Democrat around here" is a common comment. We are women who want to effect change for ourselves, our children and our country by promoting progressive values. We want to be a great group to meet and network with like minded women while encouraging involvement in community life and politics.
Children are always welcome.
