About Us

Meet our Board: Jo Craycraft, Toni Denis, Jan Manolis, Nancy Scharff, Susan Lanning, Kari Hull, and Sandy Baggenstos

Women have always been a key part of Arizona politics.  Jerry Emmett, the founder of the DWPA, who is now 103 years old, reminds us that in Arizona, women had the right to vote and hold office in 1912 as part of the state's constitution eight years before the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The DWPA seeks to encourage women to participate in all levels of service and government whether running for office, or assuming support roles and leadership positions in our community and state.

We invite you to make a difference

The  Democratic  Women  of  the  Prescott Area hosts luncheons featuring political speakers from across Arizona. Past speakers have included Katie Hobbs, Senior Democratic State Senator currently running for Arizona Secretary of State, Deedra Abboud, Democrat candidate running for the U.S Senate, Dr. David Brill, Democrat, running for Arizona's 4th Congressional Dristrict,  Jo Craycraft, Democrat, running for Arizona State Senate representing LD1, and Jan Manolis, Democrat, running for Arizona State House for LD1.   We’ve also hosted speakers on women’s reproductive rights, domestic violence and healthcare. Our newsletter, email and presentations inform members on critical issues. We organize petition drives, rapid response campaigns and demonstrations, as well as talking to our elected officials about issues that matter. Our members often volunteer for local, state and national campaigns 

as well.

Another key mission is to provide educational scholarships. Each year we provide at least one competitive scholarship to a graduating senior, as well as a scholarship to the Emerge Arizona program, which trains Democratic women to serve as leaders.

Why should you join?

DWPA members are like-minded people who help define party issues.  We host luncheons, parties, and other social events. Benefits include membership in the Arizona Federation of Democratic Women and the National Federation of Democratic Women as well as discounts at DWPA events.  

DWPA 2019 Membership Drive

We'd like to thank all of you for your enthusiasm for the Democratic Party this past year. Your presence at the DWPA luncheons and your involvement in the numerous Democratic activities that have occurred in the Prescott area have been inspiring. Because of you we think the Democrats of Arizona have made great progress.

In 2017 we gave three college scholarships to Elena Kaoni, Miranda Todd, and DACA College Scholarship to  Kim Zamora Delgado.  We sent Jo Craycraft, who is challenging Karen Fann for the AZ Senate seat in LD1, and Jan Manolis, running for LD1 House of Representatives seat against David Stringer and Noel Campbell, to Arizona Emerge's candidate training for dynamic Democratic women to gain the training and skills to prepare then to run for public office.

The 2019 Membership fee is $20.00 and may be paid by clicking on the Act Blue Express Payment Button and selecting the DONATE $20.00 BUTTON.

2019 Memberships purchased October, November, and December 2018 will be effective through December 2019.
