Ireland's Grant for Our Chicago Mother Jones Statue Campaign

Our Mother Jones Chicago statue sculpture fundraising is off to a glorious start. Proud to accept a generous check from Sara Keating, Vice Consul General of Ireland for Chicago and the Midwest today for $36,000 for this project as a kickstart from our Emigrant Support Programme grant application.



This project has wings!! We will be sharing more later.


We also received a $9700 grant.for a St Louis project on Fannie Sellins, who was murdered 100 years ago. We’ll be updating on that later.



Left to right members of statue committee: Helen Ramirez-Odell, Brigid Duffy, Elliott Gorn, Vice-consul Keating, Rosemary Feurer, David J. Rathke, Margaret Fulkerson.
