Yesterday, the Chisholm Project celebrated the 96th birthday of the Honorable Shirley Chisholm. Today is Giving Tuesday, and we are eager to continue the work of uplifting her name and building upon her legacy. To continue that work, we need your support. 



Your donations will help us to continue our 15+ years of work organizing public events like the following: 

Chisholm Day 2020 will be on December 7th
  •  Shirley Chisholm Day: This year, we have organized a virtual celebration and dialogue. That conversation, “The Future of Black Women’s Political Leadership” will include Prof. Maya Wiley (civil rights attorney and NYC Mayoral Candidate) and Dr. Zinga Fraser (Brooklyn College Professor and Director of the Chisholm Project).
  • Student research projects 
  • Student-led conferences, forums and civic engagement initiatives

We at the Chisholm Project are curators of Shirley Chisholm’s living legacy. Furthermore, we work hard to empower young women and men to follow in the Congresswoman’s footsteps as leaders in the formation of a better world.
