My name is Brigette R. LeBlanc, and I am President of Black Women Organized For Political Action San Francisco-Peninsula Chapter.  I invite you to consider joining BWOPA and to also extend that same invitation to your colleagues and family members.   BWOPA is a state organization with seven chapters throughout the state of California with 1600 plus members.  BWOPA is the oldest and most prestigious Black Woman’s Political organization of its kind in the state of California.    We have now enjoyed over 35 years of activism, political action, leadership training and mentorship; with seven active chapters statewide.  In addition to this, as a BWOPA member you join a network of professionals, grass roots organizers, Civil Rights activists, and community organizers who are unified in ensuring that issues that impact Black Women and their communities are identified and addressed in the political forum.BWOPA.jpgToday, more than ever, we need your help to continue the momentum. Our focus areas for this year are Health Care, Prison Reform, and Foster Care.
In recent years, BWOPA has been instrumental in preparing Black women and others throughout the State of California to successfully run political campaigns and win elected offices.  We are proud of our proven track record in winning elections as well as positioning those who seek the important appointments on boards and commissions throughout the local, state, and national levels.  I hope we can count on you to become a member and/or supporter of BWOPA.
