HISTORY

New Mexico Federation of Democratic Women (formerly Democratic Women of New Mexico) was formed in 1977 to give women a stronger voice in the Democratic Party of New Mexico. The state organization became an affiliate of the National Federation of Democratic Women in 1977. The following is a brief timeline of that affiliation history. The National Federation of Democratic Women started in 1972 and the first Convention was in Tennessee in 1973. An early Western Region Director remembers going from Arizona to New Mexico to talk with New Mexico Democratic Women who were not totally convinced about joining the National Federation organization. NMFDW hosted the NFDW National convention in 1988. Candidates for President Michael Dukakis and Jesse Jackson both were speakers at the convention. NMFDW hosted the NFDW Annual Convention again in 2010.
