For our 11th Annual 

Portland Good Friday Breakfast

at the

Oregon Convention Center

April 14, 2017  | 7:00 - 8:45 AM

Our 10th annual Portland Good Friday Breakfast in 2016 featured Eldridge (El) J. Broussard, international speaker and author of The Challenge to Change. His own transformation took him on a journey from Oregon’s foster care system, to its juvenile justice system, to the Oregon State Correctional System, and ultimately to becoming a respected community leader, business professional, and public speaker.

Today, El is passionate about spreading his message of personal transformation. He challenges his audience to “Own who you are” while deeply exploring your relationships, starting with the most important one: the relationship with yourself. El’s compelling and practical insights empower individuals to make positive and lasting life changes.

El and his beautiful wife Alicia live in Portland, Oregon with their two sons, DaLontae and EJ.
