Old- Support 10 Scholarships to Train the Next Generation of Great Political Female Leaders

Politicians are a deciding factor in protecting our democracy, for the distribution of resources, maintaining our civil rights, and the future of our local and national security. Donate today to help provide 10 scholarships to train future politicians election strategy, creating and administering better plans to serve the people. This training is done by Civically Re-Engaged Women (CREW)  – an organization founded in 2017 with successful elected women in office and a mission to empower women through professional development and leadership.

Recent alumni successes such as Kristin Richardson Jordan (KRJ) who was elected as the City Councilwoman in Central Harlem in 2021 in NYC.  KRJ in her first run for public office soundly defeated an established and incumbent career politician – Bill Perkins. CREW offers quality, nonpartisan Candidate Training services via the Ruth Hassell-Thompson Institute of Civic Engagement.

In 2015, Sharon Nelson re-Incorporated the NYS Chapter of the NWPC which had gone defunct for 10 years and then became President shortly after incorporation.

From 2015-2020, The NWPC-NY and subsequently (in 2017) CREW hosted nonpartisan classes for Women interested in “Running for Public Office” at City University of New York (The Murphy Institute (2015-2017 then at the School of Professional Studies (2018-2020). The Class at CUNY was discontinued as a result of the Pandemic. In 2021, CREW launched the Ruth Hassell-Thompson Institute of Civic Engagement which is an online virtual vocational institute – allowing the institute a national presence and audience. Classes are hosted/available on the Professional Development channel of CREWTV. The classes are both live and on-demand for enrolled students.
