Our very own Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome has been selected for Essence’s Chisholm List. This non-partisan list, named after famous politician Shirley Chisholm, was created by Essence during last year’s midterm elections, and profiles several black women running for public office across the country.
Essence has partnered with Policy Link, a national research and action institute dedicated to advancing economic and social equity that focuses on policies affecting low-income communities and communities of color, to launch a Black women mayors’ roundtable.
The purpose of the roundtable is to foster relationships between mayors, increase knowledge and policy ideas that they can bring to their respective cities, and increase public awareness of the work these leaders are doing.
