The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and Avoice Salutes The Women of the CBC

In March, people across the globe join together to celebrate the contributions of women in today's society. The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and Avoice would like to take the time to recognize the work of the women of the Congressional Black Caucus. From civil rights to healthcare, African-American women have played a major role in proposing progressive legislation. This year, the Congressional Black Caucus has gained five new dynamic women, committed to continuing the great work that has helped people across the United States for decades. Join us in saluting and learning more about these women by visiting our online exhibit. To view the exhibit, click here.
