45 years after Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm’s historic Presidential Campaign & the National Black Political Convention, our 45th President is threatening the progress we’ve made. Join our campaign to recruit, train, fund and elect 45 progressive black candidates in 2017 & 2018.

About the Campaign

Organize45 is The Collective PAC’s 2017-2018 campaign to recruit, train, fund and elect 45 progressive black candidates from around the country. 2017 is the 45th Anniversary of Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm’s historic run for President as well as the 45th Anniversary of the National Black Political Convention held in Gary, Indiana. And just as 1972 was a transformational year in black politics, 2017 must be as well; as we continue to resist the racist, jingoistic policies of the 45th President’s administration.

The goals of the #Organize45 campaign are to:

  • Recruit 45 progressive black candidates to run for office in 2017 & 2018
  • Train 450 candidates, campaign staff, activists and advocates
  • Host 45 informational and fundraising events around the country
  • Raise $450,000 to support our endorsed candidates and the work of the PAC
