Women of Color ROAR breakfast

WOC Roar Breakfast (WRB) is a celebration for women in San Diego County.

It is fitting that we launch Black History Month lifting up and amplifying the voice of the women carrying the Democratic Party to victory.

The impact of the stunning upset wins in Virginia and Alabama sent a clear message that Black women are the decisive voters in the Democratic Party.

The 2017 Women’s March was an unprecedented declaration and demonstration of the power of mobilized women. Women have formed new grassroots organizations, such as Indivisible Watu, and many became politically active for the first time. Perhaps the most significant outcome of this movement has been more women running for office, and as demonstrated in this November’s races, Women of Color running and winning.

We are energized by this development on a national level and seek to nurture it in our own region. Our mission is to support women in office, uplift women running for office and encourage more women to run for office in San Diego County.
