Austin Republican Women (ARW) is a group of Austin-area women keen on political awareness and education, community involvement, and advancing Republican causes and ideals in the governance of our great State of Texas.
We work together to elect Republican candidates who seek local, state and national public offices. To that end, we maintain a robust calendar of events and program activities designed to inform, educate, involve and enthuse our members and guests.

ARW’s 2021-22 KEEP TEXAS RED initiative is both a battle cry and a call to arms. Like famous battle cries of the mid-1830s when Texians fought and died to defend this land, KEEP TEXAS RED is a rallying cry for our time. To those who threaten to turn Texas blue, we say: No way, “Come and take it.”
Today, the battlegrounds are our cities, schools, courts and state Houses. Social media, cell phones and fake news have replaced the cannons and rifles of yesteryear. Our swords are now our elected officials; our weapons are now dollars. Isn’t it time to help ARW arm the arsenal with your donation?
If you answer yes, to defending Republican values and beliefs, please make a donation to ARW’s 2021-22 KEEP TEXAS RED initiative. There are four donation categories from which to choose, each one named after an historic battle cry that spurred Texians to victory in their fight for Texas. With your financial support, ARW can continue that good fight today for the future of our Great State. Let’s KEEP TEXAS RED
