America is composed of all kinds of people – part of the difficulty in our nation today is due to the fact that we are not utilizing the abilities and the talents of other brown and black peoples and females that have something to bring to the creativity and the rejuvenation and the revitalisation of this country. – Shirley Chisholm

Happy Women’s History Month Family!

With 2018 gearing up to be a big year for women in politics, I’ve seen remarkable progress when it comes to black women candidates and the support they have received.  But a new report by the Collective PAC examined the funding that these candidates have received. The discrepancy between candidates of color and white candidates are staggering.

I’ll talk to Jessica Byrd, Founder of Three Point Strategies about the challenges and successes her firm has experienced–and how she identifies and supports black women candidates running for office.

We’ll also look at life of Shirley Chisholm in our Women’s History Month feature. Unbought and Unbossed.
