SUNDAY BRUNCH WITH HIGHER HEIGHTS
Sunday Brunch with Higher Heights is bringing the power of talking and brunching into the twenty-first century. A joint program on Higher Heights Leadership Fund and Higher Heights for America, this monthly social-media-driven series seeks to encourage Black women to become part of national conversations on trending political and current events affecting their communities.
Our effort to engage and mobilize Black women– one of the largest groups of users of social media –through this monthly Sunday Brunch series provides opportunities for them to learn, comment, and take action on important legislative, policy, and leadership issues of the day across multiple social media platforms.
These virtual brunches take place from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST every first Sunday of the month. These events offer up a compelling menu of opinion pieces, blogs, Twitter town hall chats, and live webcast interviews with well-known and emerging politicians, journalists, activists, and political analysts.
Research on Black women’s political and civic leadership is a key first step to developing a long term-strategy to expand Black women’s civic participation and leadership. Higher Heights’ research is the foundation to build a national strategy, create a national network of individuals and funders to support this work and develop an effective program with tangible outcomes and defined timeline.
