Federal Advocacy

Progress requires policies. We work to turn the Black community's priorities into federal public policy through the legislative process. Civic engagement, racial equity, and supportive policies and institutions are in our DNA.

A legacy on Capitol Hill

Working with elected officials and presidential administrations is one approach to our work on issues that impact the Black community, including economic opportunity, education, and criminal justice reform.

Work continues to ensure civil rights and social justice for all.

Our legislative priorities

  • The promotion and protection of civil rights
  • Securing a fair and equal criminal justice system
  • Ensuring high-quality educational opportunities for all Americans
  • A fair labor environment
  • Securing affordable adequate housing and health care for all Americans
