      Women of Color Roar 2020 - From the Ballot Box to the White House

      Join us for "From the Ballot Box to the White House" 2020 Women of Color Roar 2020 is a Black History Month celebration of the historic campaigns and elections of Women of Color from Shirley Chisholm to Kamala Harris. How do we diversify the pipeline? Although we have made gains, there is much work to do. How is it possible that there have only been two Black women in the Senate in 200 years? And how are we going to eliminate the barriers that have kept us from electing a Black woman governor?  Join us for a look at the landscape, the opportunities, and the obstacles facing Women of Color in the 2020 election season and beyond. If you have a school or community organization that would like to nominate students to receive a complimentary ticket to WOC Roar 2020, please contact us at info@womenofcolorroar.com. 2019 The theme was "Running and Winning" and featured a panel of the most powerful Women of Color in San Diego County - Assemblymember Dr. Shirley Weber, City Council President Georgette Gomez, and City Councilmember Monica Montgomery. We were overjoyed to have set a new record of over 400 tickets sold and over 100 of those were donated to the high school and college-age young women.  Thank you so much to all our sponsors and donors. Our Woman of Distinction Award went to Congresswoman Maxine Waters.  See her acceptance speech and video greeting here: https://www.facebook.com/WomenofColorRoar/videos/307176856815488/ 2018  Our 2018 Inaugural event, the Women of Color Roar Breakfast was a stunning success.  The sold-out event brought 300 women from diverse racial and ethnic groups together to honor Black women leaders who were trailblazers. We sponsored 80 high school and college-age young women to attend complimentary as our special guests. This unique gathering provided the young women with the opportunity to be surrounded by women in leadership and exposed them to great role models which led to mentorships and internships. The Women of Color Roar breakfast was a transformative experience for them.  Women of Color Roar 2020  will offer mentorships, internships and instill sense of mission encourage young women to run for office. We will be honoring trail-blazing Women of Color in our community. They have been working tirelessly to register disenfranchised voters, to supply medical aid to the refugees at our border and stand up for criminal justice reform.  It is fitting that we launch Black History Month lifting up and amplifying the voice of the women carrying the Democratic Party to victory. 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. * * * Delicious Breakfast Buffett.   For information: info@womenofcolorroar.com The Indivisible Project is a 501 (c) 4 nonprofit corporation.  Donations are not tax deductible.
