Horizontal Dividing Line Transparent About the Congressional Black Caucus: (via Wikipedia) | “The caucus describes its goals as “positively influencing the course of events pertinent to African-Americans and others of similar experience and situation”, and “achieving greater equity for persons of African descent in the design and content of domestic and international programs and services. The CBC encapsulates these goals in the following priorities: closing the achievement and opportunity gaps in education, assuring quality health care for every American, focusing on employment and economic security, ensuring justice for all, retirement security for all Americans, increasing welfare funds, and increasing equity in foreign policy.” Horizontal Dividing Line Transparent Other CBC Sites: CBC Foundation | CBC Institute | CBC Members | CBC Pac Congressional Black Caucus 2017 News and Events
