Higher Heights is hosting a series of online trainings designed uniquely for and by Black women who are considering running for office.  Join Black women for across the country for a power packed 60 minutes with leading experts that will provide basic tools and information from fundraising and communications to developing an action plan. 

The late Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm once said, “At present, our country needs women's idealism and determination, perhaps more in politics than anywhere else.”   This statement rings true today and Higher Heights wants to help prepare Black women to run, win and lead.

Winter Series is coming soon.
