Who We Are

Concerned Women for America (CWA) is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization with a rich 30-year history of helping our members across the country bring Biblical principles into all levels of public policy. There’s a cultural battle raging across this country and CWA is on the frontline protecting those values through prayer and action.

We focus on seven core issues: the family, the sanctity of human life, religious liberty, education, pornography, national sovereignty, and support for Israel.

Our Members

CWA’s membership consists of half a million women and like-minded men from all walks of life who share in CWA’s vision to restore the family to its traditional purpose. We are a non-partisan, non-sectarian organization with members affiliated with several political parties and/or religious denominations.

CWA has nearly 500 prayer/action chapters in almost every state, where our members pray, educate themselves and others, and act to protect those Biblical principles we believe are the foundation of freedom.
