We are mothers, wives, young professionals, retirees, singles,
homemakers and concerned activists.
The Mecklenburg Evening Republican Women was created in 1962. Our members have been delegates to the Republican National Convention, served in leadership in the National Federation of Republican Women and held leadership throughout the Republican Party. We have grown exponentially as fellow Republican women find strong red voices in the blue Queen City! Republican women are an integral part of the Republican effort in Mecklenburg County. MERWC members are justifiably proud of the contribution and impact we have in partnering with the MeckGOP.
We are the Red Bull of the Republican Party!
“Through their dedicated service to the Republican Party and its candidates, the women of MERWC have earned the respect and appreciation of Conservatives throughout Mecklenburg County. With grass-roots activism, volunteering and weekly meetings, they boost the profile of our Party and motivate its members. We need more like them”.
– Ed Driggs, Charlotte City Councilman District 7
“MERWC is a truly unique organization within our region. As an elected official I have called on them countless times to help with an issue that needed grassroots support, and every time they deliver. When local republicans running for office need help on the campaign trail, MERWC activates their membership and in many cases ends up being the difference maker. If I could recommend one group for women (and men as well) with a passion for good business and principled politics to join – it would be MERWC.”
– Tariq Bokhari, Charlotte City Councilman District 6
MERWC is a part of the very fabric that makes up the political scene of Charlotte. When it comes to organizing Republicans, engaging the community, canvassing the neighborhoods, educating the voters and supporting the candidates, MERWC has a major hand in it all. I look forward to MERWC continuing to set the bar and take our community to the next level.”
– Brandon Pierce, Former Candidate Charlotte City Councilman District
