The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Chattanooga Chapter, Inc. will host its Run Woman Run Workshop on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 10 a.m. until noon on Facebook Live.
“Women need to be front and center during these crucial decision-making times in our democracy,” said Tina Fielder-Gibson, NCBW’s Public Policy Committee chair. “NCBW Chattanooga wants to reach out to women who may want to run for office but need to know the fundamentals to do so. Armed with this information, maybe more women will come forward and just not think about it but do it."
There are two parts to the workshop; a presentation by speakers about their political journeys, and a Power Point presentation describing what it takes to make a run for office. The guest speakers include Katherlyn Geter, District 5 commissioner; Karitsa Jones, District 5 School Board member; and Dr. Karen Weaver, former mayor of Flint, Mi.
The workshop will be held via Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/NCBWChattanooga.
