6th Annual Women of Color Roar Breakfast: 

Our Time - Sixty Years of Triumph 

From Fannie Lou Hamer being beaten and jailed for trying to vote to Black Women serving as Secretary of State, Vice President of the United States and on the Supreme Court.  We have Black women mayors in major cities,  serving in congress, and state legislatures. In San Diego, we have elected the first Black woman to the County Board of Supervisors.

We will honor and celebrate the progress we've made.

The Women of Color Roar Breakfast began in 2018 with the mission to celebrate African American elected officials and encourage young women of color to run for office and pursue careers in public service.

In the past five years, community members of all racial and ethnic groups have come together to honor women leaders in our community. We have sponsored over 500 high school and college age young women, “Future Leaders,” to attend as our special guests. This unique event provided young women with the opportunity to be surrounded by women in leadership and exposed them to great role models.  The Women of Color Roar breakfast was a transformative experience for them.
