Mother Jones Chicago Statue Campaign

Chicago needs a statue to this immigrant woman labor organizer!


There are now just a few  statues of women historical figures in the city of Chicago. None are of working class women.  Let's put this iconic Irish immigrant refugee and founder of the American labor movement--the Mother of the working class--on a statue in the city she called home. Imagine presenting a strong, courageous, bold women in Chicago. She deserves it. We deserve it.

We Are proud to announce that the Chicago statue will be at the historic Water Tower. Read more about it here:
