ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) condemns the violent acts in our nation’s capital yesterday, which endangered lives and resulted in needless deaths.
“One of our nation’s cherished founding principles is the right of every American citizen to engage in lawful and peaceful protests,” NFRW President Ann Schockett said. “Acts of violence do not represent patriotism and what our great country stands for. The NFRW continues to denounce all such violence.”
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest grassroots Republican women’s organization in the nation. NFRW provides a forum for women to serve as leaders in the political, government, and civic arenas. NFRW objectives are to recruit, train and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public and protect the integrity of our electoral process.
