PWA-Lakeshore, the lakeshore affiliate of the Progressive Women’s Alliance, works to identify, connect, and grow a community of like-minded individuals along the West Michigan lakeshore—from Holland to Grand Haven to Muskegon.


We advocate for effective public policy on issues affecting women, encourage women’s involvement in the political process, and provide financial and volunteer support to endorsed candidates and causes that align with our values.


Most months we host a midweek happy hour gathering—typically on the 4th Wednesday of the month. At these events, we invite speakers to host a brief conversation on an issue of relevance to the progressive community and provide time for socializing and conversation, as well. These events are casual, open to all, and we encourage you to join us! Watch our Facebook page for information on upcoming MIDWeek gatherings.

You can stay abreast of events and issues on the lakeshore by joining our email list and by following us on facebook.


If you live, work, or summer along the lakeshore, be in touch! We’d love to be connected.
