Republican Women care about homeless pregnant women

Against a backdrop of states recognizing that abortion is murder, it was an especially meaningful for Rossmoor-Los Alamitos (RLA) Republican Women Federated members to donate items to Precious Life Shelter during the club’s May 18 meeting. Precious Life was founded in 1982 when Theresa and Dan Sherrin took four expectant homeless women into their home. Since that time the non-profit shelter has helped hundreds of homeless pregnant women to become self-reliant members of the community. RLA RWF is very proud that Precious Life Shelter’s founder Theresa Sherrin and its executive director Theresa Murphy are both members of the club.

“Although we are a political organization, RLA Republican Women Federated is very invested in the local community,” said President Patricia Eskenazi. “That is why our May meeting continued the Mother’s Day theme by celebrating the outstanding work performed by Precious Life Shelter. Imagine how difficult it is being homeless and then magnify that situation when the woman is pregnant.”

Also during the May 18 meeting, the club celebrated Armed Services Day. Members and guests brought photos and shared anecdotes about their time in the military or about current family members who are serving. Republicans are very supportive of the military so there were numerous stories to share as the room frequently exploded with applause to express thanks for their service.

Following the breakfast buffet, Dr. Barbara Stone, emeritus professor of political science at California State University, Fullerton shared her thoughts on the state and national political landscape. A dynamic and engaging speaker, Dr. Stone focused on how Republicans can win back districts that flipped during the 2018 midterm election.
