Charleston native Jade Simmons returns home to confirm astonishing 2020 presidential bid

Monday, March 9th at 12:30 pm, Charleston’s own Jade Simmons will greet family, friends, supporters, and the press at Washington Square Park (80 Broad St, downtown Charleston) to confirm the start of her trailblazing 2020 run for President of the United States. Simmons will share more about her vision and plans for Operation Restoration, which is the movement powering her campaign.

On Tuesday morning, at the Renaissance Charleston Historic District Hotel, in honor of Women’s History Month and the 100 year anniversary of women’s suffrage, Simmons will also host a free Mavens, Mommies, and Mavericks Meet-up for Lowcountry women. All are welcome to the inspirational gathering, but please RSVP to hold your spot. Seating is limited.

Last Friday, Feb. 28th, the St. Andrews High School, Northwestern and Rice University alum announced her intentions in Houston at the first Operation Restoration Rally, a non-denominational gathering in support of challenging the current state of division in the nation.

The sought after speaker is brought in by the world’s most superlative brands to speak on transformational leadership, change mastery, innovation, and personal development. She was recently named one of the Best Keynote Speakers of 2019 (Northstar Meetings). She has been called on to inspire and influence a variety of industries including technology, healthcare, financial services, chemicals, manufacturing, fitness, pharmaceuticals, and education. Simmons describes her campaign as an inspirationally independent, powerfully non-partisan, and faith-fueled movement that focuses on “common ground, common sense” platforms that unite, rather than further divide.

Over the next few weeks and months, Jade will host a series of live events including more Restoration Rallies, Mavens, Mommies, and Mavericks Meet-ups during Women’s History Month, and a spring Listening Tour in cities across the nation. She will also release her signature platform and policy issues in the days and weeks ahead, including her Pro-Human, Pro-Prosperity, and Pro-Protection policies, as well as her “America’s Best and Brightest” collaborative initiative.

Jade first made waves as an out-of-the-box concert pianist, trained by West Ashley piano teachers Kay Whitehead and Mimi Nussbaum before going on to get her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in piano performance from Northwestern and Rice universities respectively. Her musical prowess spans Rachmaninoff to Rap and has garnered her performances in renowned halls and the nickname of Classical Music’s #1 Maverick. Simmons, also an author and minister, has gone on to write the Amazon bestselling book Audacious Prayers for World Changers. She is the CEO of Jade Media Global, the umbrella organization for her speaking, performance, and content distribution activities.
