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.
