SETXRW are a group of Compassionate Conservatives Standing for Liberty and Justice.  We are a fun-loving group of ladies whose mission is to promote political education to increase the effectiveness of Republican women in the cause of good government.  In addition, the club strives to coordinate activities within the community to achieve the efforts of Republican women and male associate members throughout the Southeast Texas Region to elect Republican Candidates.


Since organization, the club has become a fast-growing energetic group.  Our membership has grown from twenty (20) primary members with two (2) associate members to forty-one (41) primary members and thirty-one (31) associate members.  We attribute our success to donating time to membership recruitment, and several different projects known as Caring for America and Literacy as well as meeting with conservative community leaders for the purpose of learning our common values and how to use these values to better unite our community.
