The Groton FDW has changed their name to the Southeastern CT Federation of Democratic Women. This is now more inclusive of our fellow Democratic women in surrounding towns. We have members from New London, Montville, Ledyard, Norwich, North Stonington, Stonington and Groton. We would welcome members from other towns as well.
