I want to be a part of the solution in sincere hope that we can protect the values & rights that  generations before us fought so hard to secure and now feel at risk."

Mission Statement

Women for American Values and Ethics (WAVE) is a diverse group of non-partisan women which exists to engage, educate and empower its members to advance progressive American values and ethics. 


WAVE started in the wake of the 2016 presidential election when a small group of women in South Orange County gathered to discuss the various ways American values and ethics were being undermined and challenged by the new administration.

  • Educate our members on important political issues and the impact of proposed legislation, executive orders, and judicial rulings on our constitutional and environmental rights.
  • Empower our members by providing training in grassroots & direct advocacy so we may use civic engagement to safeguard our democratic processes.
  • Advance political candidates, organizations and policies that support American values and ethics.
