The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) is an American Educational Foundation. It conducts research on issues that affect the Black Americans and each year, it publishes a report on some key legislation, and some issues forums, leadership seminars and scholarships. The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation is a separate entity, from the Congressional Black Caucus although the two are well linked. CBCF is a separate nonprofit group that runs programs in education, healthcare, and economic development.

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation was established as a non-partisan research institution by the members of the CBC to promote black Americans involvement in the national political process. The first meeting was held on September 30, 1976.

The Annual Legislative Conference

Every year, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation holds the Annual Legislative Conference which is the leading policy conference on issues impacting African Americans and the global black community. Thought leaders, legislators, and concerned citizens engage on economic development, civil and social justice, public health and education issues. More than 10,000 people attend 100 public policy forums and much more. Join subject experts, industry leaders, elected officials and citizen activists to explore today’s issues from an African-American perspective. This year’s event will be taking place from September 11-15th at the Walter Washington Convention Center.

Bringing the black community together is the only way through which our leaders can empower us. Economically, we are far much behind. I urge everyone to take part in the CBCF Annual Legislative Conference and learn the various issues impacting African Americans and the Global black community. Thought leaders, legislators, business people, and concerned citizens engage on economic development, civil and social justice, matters health and education. So, I really think it is a good forum to keep ourselves informed with matters affecting our community. Click here for more information.
