Facing America’s No. 1 drug problem in 1873, Bible believing, praying American women marched against alcohol. They saw saloons close and drinkers accept Jesus Christ as Savior. In 1874, women formally organized the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union to promote abstinence from alcohol and a happy home. In their efforts to change the alcohol culture they impacted the family on every front.Today SDWCTU continues to work for an alcohol free lifestyle for "life at its best."
