“Protecting the Homeland, the Motherland, and the African Diaspora”
When it comes to conflicts at home and abroad, especially in Africa and African diaspora countries, it is important to come to the aid of those in need, and the CBC has history of doing this that begins with helping to end apartheid. This history has continued with work to address the genocide in Darfur, extend temporary protective status for Liberians escaping civil war, and coordinate disaster response efforts with USAID and the American Red Cross in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake, among other efforts. The CBC Foreign Affairs and National Security Task Force continues to build on this history by fighting for funding and other resources to address famine in Africa and rebuild and revitalize Caribbean nations ravaged by natural disaster. The Task Force also supports policies that make us safer at home, such as combating xenophobia that is counterproductive to our national security, supporting our veterans and military families, and fully funding the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA).
