Southwest Republican Women – Durango, CO


Our Mission

Southwest Republican Women (SWRW) represents Republicans from all of southwest Colorado including La Plata and San Juan Counties and the cities of Durango, Bayfield, Ignacio and Silverton. The goals of SWRW are in harmony with those of the Colorado Federation of Republican Women (CFRW) and the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) as well as our local Republican Central Committees; that is to promote the principles of the Republican Party, promote women candidates and educate voters to the virtues of the Republican philosophy.

Our Philosophy

  • WE BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored
  • WE BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex, national origin or disability
  • WE BELIEVE that free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth, and prosperity
  • WE BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn
  • WE BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least
  • WE BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people
  • WE BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times
  • WE BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom, and human rights throughout the world
