The Leadership Breakfast is a fundraiser to support programs of the YWCA Bellingham, including critical Emergency and Transitional housing for women experiencing homelessness.
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 Being the Change You Want to See.
Monica was the only 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 work to establish the missing and murdered indigenous women’s project, culminating in a 36-page report, and to work 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. Her enthusiasm, passion and sense of humor are contagious!
