YWCA Virtual Leadership Breakfast Fundraiser

The Virtual Leadership Breakfast is a fundraiser to support programs of the YWCA Bellingham, including emergency and permanent supportive housing for women experiencing homelessness and low income women. We look forward to hosting an engaging event that you and your friends and loved ones can enjoy from the comfort of your own home! Registration is free, with the option to purchase breakfast delivery on the day of our event as well as raffle tickets for our fantastic Staycation raffle prize!

Our keynote speaker this year will be Monica Alexander, Division Manager of Advanced Training for the WA State Criminal Justice Training Commission. She will be presenting her talk titled “This Moment in Time: Confronting Bias in Law Enforcement and Our Nation.”

Monica was the first African American woman to be promoted to Captain in the almost 100 year history of the WA State Patrol’s existence. Her passion led her to establish the missing and murdered indigenous women’s project, culminating in a 36-page report. She also worked to highlight the 32-year backlog of over 10,000 sexual assault kits, eventually helping push through legislation that funded an $11 million lab facility in Vancouver to complete work on the backlog.

Monica is a great leader and influencer. Her enthusiasm, passion and sense of humor are contagious, and we look forward to having her at our Virtual Leadership Breakfast!
