Oakland Mayor Jean Quan have been invited to the inaugural weekend of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women in San Francisco "Bridging the Generations Tea and Tour, March 4-6 in San Francisco.   

Women's History Month is the platform for the Mayors to join National Coalition of 100 Black Women's President M. Delois (Dee Dee) Strum PhD. of Indianapolis, Indiana who is the keynote speaker at the Sixth Annual "Golden Girls Hats and Gloves Tea" to be held Saturday, March 5, 2011 at the historic Fairmont Hotel on famed Nob Hill in San Francisco.   


The San Francisco Chapter of the Coalition of 100 Black Women launched a national call to action on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday for the National Coalition of 100 Black Women in San Francisco Weekend, March 4, 5, and 6, 2011 inviting women's groups and their families and friends from across the nation to come to San Francisco.  Everyone is welcome.  As fund raising allows, the San Francisco Chapter is also providing the unique cutting edge "Bridging the Generations Employment Training Opportunity" that will be an intergenerational three month on the job training program.


"We are pleased to know Mayor Lee and Mayor Quan are making an effort to join us.  Hospitality is the most significant and direct way to build bridges between people and I applaud the San Francisco Chapter for making a call to action for women of all races and ethnic backgrounds and their families and friends to break bread with us during the "Bridging the Generations" Tea and Tour of San Francisco, said National President of the Coalition of 100 Black Women, Dr. M. Delois (Dee Dee) Strum.  What better place to build or reinforce cultural bridges than in San Francisco, where the first United Nations' meeting was held.  The development of the "Bridging the Generations Employment Training Opportunity" is an example of out of the box thinking that demonstrates the capacity of coalition chapters to benefit their communities."
