CONGRESSWOMAN MAXINE WATERS TO SPEAK AT THE COLLEGE DEMOCRATS OF AMERICA SHIRLEY CHISHOLM DINNER
Washington, D.C.: The College Democrats of America is proud to host Congresswoman Maxine Waters at our first annual Shirley A. Chisholm Dinner. Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been a strong supporter of College Democrats and we applaud her commitment to student loan relief.
The Shirley A. Chisholm Dinner, headlined by former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, will take place the evening of Saturday, September 7 at Tulane University. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased here. This first annual Shirley Chisholm Dinner will be a highlight of the College Democrats of America’s 60th annual summer convention, which will take place over September 6–8 at Tulane and Loyola University.
The CDA Summer Convention is a unique event in which College Democrats from chapters across the nation engage in relevant and meaningful workshops, network with peers, and listen to prominent political speakers including Representatives Maxine Waters, Cedric Richmond, Jan Schakowsky, and Seth Moulton, as well as a collection of mayors and state legislative leaders from Jackson, Mississippi Mayor Chukwe Lumumba to Connecticut state Senator Will Haskell.
