Oakland City Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney, “Women, Power, and Change”

Portrait of Councilwoman McElhaney

Councilwoman McElhaney is serving a second term representing Oakland’s Council District 3. Known as a bridge builder and advocate, she will speak on “Women, Power, and Change” addressing issues swirling in society, with the national and local women’s marches as a focal point for organizing. What do African American women want for themselves and their communities? How are they using their power? Are they learning from their forebears and black women leaders of the past?
