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 Telephone Town Hall Series to discuss the different ways COVID-19 is impacting Black America.
