Welcome to the Uptown Charlotte Republican Women!
The Uptown Charlotte Republican Women (UCRW) was created in 2019 to allow busy working professional conservative women a chance to network with fellow conservative women in a casual, happy hour setting. No drama, no fuss, no agenda. Just likeminded conservatives gathering to enjoy a cocktail, enjoy a bite and to talk with one another before getting back to our households!
Our mission is to promote Republican values with conservative women in a fun and casual happy hour setting throughout the Uptown Charlotte area. Our group is proud to partner with the Mecklenburg County Republican Party and the North Carolina Federation of Republican Women. We are a chartered and recognized member of the National Federation of Republican Women since June 2020! Dues are $25 for members and associate members. This is the cheapest Federated Club you can join in North Carolina! Click on the join page to become a member!
The group meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 6-8pm at rotating locations around Uptown, Dilworth, Elizabeth, NoDa, Plaza Midwood, Cotswold and near light rail stops. Be sure and check here to find out where the next month's event will be!
The UCRW holds its annual meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each January, where we elect new leadership. If you would like to serve in leadership or on our social committee, please contact us!

Uptown Women are Servant Leaders in our Backyard
THANK YOU to everyone that contributed to our Uptown tent community supply drive. Earlier this spring we were able to present a direct donation of $5,000 from Tea Fusion Cafe to Hearts for the Invisible Charlotte Coalition. At our April meeting we presented an entire SUV worth of tent city supplies to HFTIC's Executive Director Jessica Lefkowitz as well as a $270 Visa gift card to be used to help support their brand new Hearts House for Men!
Congrats to Our MeckGOP Board!
A HUGE congratulations are in order for our very own President Sarah Reidy-Jones, who was elected as the next MeckGOP Chair!!! Sarah built this club and has served as our President since its founding. We know that she will do awesome things leading the MeckGOP!
In addition, Uptown members also elected include Secretary Wendy Fontela, Campaigns Chair Amy Bynum, Headquarters Chair Linda Sullivan, Recruitment Chair Lee Ann Patton, Public Relations Chair Mallory Finch and Voter Registration Co-Chair Morgan Squatriglia.
