Supervisor Malia Cohen inspires scholarship recipient at the San Francisco Business and Professional Women, Inc. 41st Annual Sojourner Truth Luncheon, June 28th at Marines Memorial Hotel.
San Francisco- Just days before District 10 Supervisor Malia Cohen was voted as San Francisco Board of Supervisor President (link to KTVU News Coverage), she called upon the more than 300 attendees of the San Francisco Business and Professional Women's 41st Annual Sojourner Truth Awards and Scholarship Luncheon to pray for Mayor Elect London Breed as forces of resistance were already lining up. 
 "From Your Lips To God's Ears," as the old proverb goes, not only did the audience of the group headed by Carol Tatum pray, but the InterFaith Council heard the call to action also.  
It should be noted that not only is Mayor Breed making history as the first woman of color to become Mayor of San Francisco;  It's the first time that a woman of color as Board of Supervisors President will be handing off leadership to another woman of color as Cohen succeeds Breed...Well, "c" naturally follows "b."
