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.
Each year community members of all racial and ethnic groups come
together at our event to honor women leaders in our community. As of
Women of Color Roar has sponsored over 400 high school and college age young women, “Future Leaders,” to attend as our special guests. This unique event provides the young women with the opportunity to be surrounded by women in leadership and exposes them to great role models. The Women of Color Roar breakfast is a transformative experience for them.
In addition to our annual breakfast, our organization holds community events, educational forums, and provides scholarships, mentorships, and internships which connect young women of color to opportunities that support and prepare them for their future careers.
