SPEAK UP & SPEAK OUT:
A Virtual Town Hall Series on COVID-19, Systemic Racism, and Black America

The role of the CBC at this historic moment is to identify, fight for, and win the best legislative change and the maximum level of resources possible to help the Black community not just survive the pandemic, but prepare to thrive in the aftermath. In order to develop the best legislation possible, we need to make sure we are as close as possible to the pulse of our people around the nation, wherever they may be. 

We are calling on you to join our SPEAK UP & SPEAK OUT Virtual Town Hall Series to hear how COVID-19 and systemic racism are impacting you.
