Due to the need to relocate the monthly Coalition Power Breakfast,
December 2019 Breakfast is formally cancelled
Since its inaugural April 2, 2011 Power Breakfast (guest speaker: Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle), continuously through the November 2, 2019 Power Breakfast, the Coalition of African American Leaders (COAL) has held its monthly forum at
BJ's Market at 8734 S. Stony Island
BJ's came to represent a place where COAL, its members, friends, partners and the public gathered to examine issues and important areas of focus relevant to our membership, our larger community-of-interest, and the African American community as a whole.
While networking and building alliances, gaining knowledge and insights, sharing diverse perspectives, planning and strategizing, recognizing and illuminating the substantive work and accomplishments of the well known and lesser known, and challenging leaders at all levels towards holding them accountable to our community, we enjoyed the great food prepared by BJ's and the ambience of community and fellowship that was BJ's Market.
