MTO’s Annual Fundraiser is around the corner and this year’s theme is in recognition of women of color who take action to fight for housing justice and human rights, like Shirley Chisholm
– an advocate for civil and human rights, as well as, the first Black woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives 50 years ago and a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus
Our theme drives home a notable Chisholm quote:
“If they don’t give you a seat at the table bring a folding chair.”
Like Chisholm, MTO and our supporters are committed to building shared, collective power and responsibility through the education and empowerment of renters in need. People most impacted by decisions and policies must have seats at the decision making tables because the inclusion of their voice, expertise, and creativity is what democracy looks like. Democracy is an inclusive action that requires the time, energy, and investment of us all to create positive social change. Thank you for supporting housing justice, equity, and human rights with MTO!
Get your tickets here! Join us in celebrating the impact women of color who have not only brought their voice, brilliance, and folding chair to the decision making table, but who empower women, youth, communities of color, and everyday people to use their voice, share their brilliance, and place their chairs aside sisters at the table.
Honorees include: Pam Alphonso-Silas, CAE; Dr. Beth E. Richie; Deborah Bennett; and Tolanda McMullen.
