It is often said that we each weave the tapestry of our lives. San Francisco’s newly
elected Mayor London Breed has already created a rich and diverse fabric for her 43
years. Elected as the 45 th mayor of the City and County of San Francisco, California in
June 2018, she also made history as the first African American woman, and only the
second woman to be elected to lead the 13th largest city in the nation. Her story has
been a powerful, symbolic and reinforcing message to all populations, especially with
the current national political landscape and 2018 midterm elections on the horizon.
