ALEXANDRIA, Va. - The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) will take its unity message to the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week, as it also seeks to elevate the profile of Republican women through a variety of activities. 

NFRW President Carrie Almond will address the convention the afternoon of Monday, July 18. Almond will highlight the NFRW's efforts to unite the Republican Party during the 2016 elections and will discuss the NFRW's nationwide "Destination: White House" campaign bus tour that seeks to register Republican-leaning women to vote, with the ultimate goal of putting a Republican back in the White House. The NFRW's video featuring Republican women leaders and Federation members will be shown during Almond's speech.

During the convention, Rosie, the NFRW's campaign tour bus, will be parked in the Display Lot just inside the security perimeter.

NFRW members from across the nation will attend the convention as delegates and alternates, will serve as convention officers and members of key convention committees, and will be featured convention speakers.
