We Are the Women Who Shape the Future

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.

“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 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.”

—Brenda Potterfield

“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-Founder

“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.”

—Julie Hill

“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.”

—Suzie Brewster
