You are Chirley Chisholm!
You are former Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm, the first major-party African American candidate to run for President and first woman to run for the Democratic presidential nomination. Part of what makes WCF women candidates exciting is their ability to make history. Our 40 years are decorated with lots of important and historic firsts.
However, for many women, including Shirley, it’s less about making history and more about getting results. While in Congress, Shirley worked tirelessly to improve the lives of inner-city citizens, was vocally opposed the draft, and supported increased spending on health care and education. She ran for President because she thought it was the best way to make an even bigger impact. The historic first just came with the territory.
Will you donate to WCF PAC to help us support more history-making women like Shirley Chisholm?
