CMFC has helped inspire and empower women to run for for office. It is now our responsibility to continue to support them in their bid for office. CMFC needs help in doing just that! It will take all of us to help them succeed, as we continue to turn The Chathams "blue" and lift up our fellow females. We need help in getting out the vote, canvassing, postcard writing and petition signing. It's the boots on the ground that make the biggest difference.
