The Trailblazing Polish Women’s Democratic Club Of Harlem New York, 1928 –

The photograph was taken in 1928 at the Polish Women’s Democratic Club of Harlem at 62 West 106th Street in Harlem, New York.

We couldn’t find a lot of information on The Woman’s National Democratic Club organization other than the national headquarters that exist today in Washington DC.

The Woman’s National Democratic Club website stated that the:

WNDC was founded in 1922 at a historic time in American history — just two years after the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which began the enfranchisement of American women. After a struggle that had begun more than 60 years earlier at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848, women were no longer to be denied all the rights and privileges of citizenship. In November 1920, many women cast their votes for the first time. While the right to vote remained, and remains, under attack for far too many Americans, WNDC was founded on the principle of putting our democracy in the hands of the people.

The first organization for Democratic women in Washington, DC, WNDC opened its doors near the White House in 1924. The Club provided a social setting for political dialogue between visiting Democrats and residents of the District of Columbia, who were excluded from national suffrage, and continue to be denied full representation.

The Woman’s National Democratic Club (WNDC) is a hub for civic engagement, learning, and political action in the heart of the nation’s capital.

The WNDC is a meeting place for Democrats, Independents, and Progressives to come together in order to protect and promote our democratic values.

They continue our legacy of serving as a forum for our community to engage in conversation and action to advance shared political interests.
