Congressional Black Caucus participates at the CBC annual conference .

We’re excited to join members of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, elected officials, activists, organizers and Black professionals from across the country as we gather in our nation’s capital for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference (CBCF ALC).

Last night, we kicked off the conference with a special town hall event moderated by Angela Rye, and featuring Congressional representatives fondly known as The Squad: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (MA). The captivating conversation centered on the most pressing issues facing the Black community, and how, for generations, Black women have built political power strong enough to progress the state of our union. Watch that conversation here.
