The NRA Women’s Leadership Forum began with a vision to form a community just for women within the NRA. Since then, it’s grown into so much more, and we are now one of the NRA’s largest and most influential philanthropic groups, sharing our time, our resources, our energy and our passion to protect the Second Amendment and our right to defend ourselves.

One-of-a-Kind Events to Celebrate One-of-a-Kind Women
Each spring we host our signature gathering, the NRA Women’s Leadership Forum Luncheon & Auction. Held in conjunction with the NRA Annual Meetings, it’s our major fundraiser and must-not-miss affair. The fall brings our Summit and a powerhouse lineup of guests and speakers. These events are supplemented by a variety of training, hunting and outdoor excursions.

“Every year, I am more and more amazed by how much progress we’ve made and how much the Women’s Leadership Forum has grown. We’ve truly become THE home for women who care about their freedom and who want to make a meaningful difference in protecting it.”
—Susan LaPierre, Women’s Leadership Forum Co-Chair
“We must support and educate our young people, because they’re the future. The Women’s Leadership Forum understands the need for youth involvement. And, more than anything else, these women will do what it takes to protect these vital programs.”
—Janet Nyce, Women’s Leadership Forum Co-Chair
“I’m the youngest member on the Executive Committee and I bring a fresh perspective because I represent more of what’s out there now. I am this generation’s soldier for defending our freedom.”
“I don’t hunt, I don’t target shoot, I don’t even own a gun. I’m just a suburban baseball and ballet mom who believes now, more so than ever, that the right to defend ourselves is being trampled! My hope is that, together, we will continue to protect, engage and learn about our precious Second Amendment ... and ‘pay it forward’ to future generations.”
“Without our firearms and our Second Amendment rights, we would lose so much, including the time you can spend with your children and grandchildren. It’s amazing when you start bringing people together how much the enthusiasm for shooting sports can spread.”
“I want my grandkids to have memories of the great things they did at grandma’s house. As soon as they’re able to carry a gun, they’ll be out there with me hunting.”
Few causes have such a direct impact on our children, grandchildren and the future of our country as the Second Amendment. We invite you to join us as a woman, a leader and a keystone of America’s treasured legacy of freedom. Come be a part of the NRA Women’s Leadership Forum and help us shape the future!
