Secretary Hillary Clinton Keynotes “Lifting As We Climb”

Hillary Clinton will be the keynote speaker, Monday, June 27, 2016, for the International Women’s Luncheon at the 50th annual Rainbow PUSH Coalition Convention at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago. The theme of the luncheon is “Lifting As We Climb” and “that is exactly what Hillary has done her entire career,” said Jacqueline Jackson, chair of the luncheon and wife of Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., founder and president of Rainbow PUSH.

“From serving the poor in the Delta of Arkansas to the Children’s Defense where she did free legal work to fighting easy access to guns to the U.S. Senate to Secretary of State to now running for the highest office in the United States, Hillary continues to lift as she climbs,” Mrs. Jackson said. “She’s a history maker. We are honored to have her as our keynote speaker and look forward to her address.”

Hundreds of women from across the city, country and world are expected to attend the luncheon, which will honor another history making woman – actress and civil rights activist, Cicely Tyson. Ms. Tyson will be presented with the Rev. and Mrs. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., Legend Award for her dedication to excellence. It is the first award in the couple’s name and will be given annually. Other awards will be presented.
