The Theodis Parsons Palmer Leadership Fund was established to support the development of strong leadership skills among women within our respective communities.

The fund is designed to assist in:
• identifying community women’s issues, developing plans to address the identified issues, working collaboratively to address issue resolution, creating solutions to women’s issues, resolving conflicts and controversy
• making a local and statewide impact to improve the condition of women and their families
• curriculum development and media tools documenting the process to empower women at the local or state level

Developing empowerment skills and refocusing the attention of our communities on true advocacy skills that can be replicated on many levels throughout our community, state and nation are paramount to the intent of this fund.
