This year marks the 50th anniversary of Shirley Chisholm, historic election to the U.S. Congress. Between 2017-2018, more Black women ran and were elected to public office during this time more than any other period in recent American history. However, despite these strides, disparities in representation from the local to federal level still exist in government. This panel will share how Black Millennial Women Electeds are carrying on the legacy of Congresswoman Chisholm and implementing transformational change in their communities.
