Washington, D.C. – The Congressional Black Caucus issued the following statement as the 100 Days CBC Transition Task Force works with the Biden-Harris Transition Team to advance the Caucus' priorities.

"The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is comprised of 57 congressional members representing a wide range of regional, ideological, and political perspectives and a depth of knowledge and experience necessary to support the establishment of the most diverse administration in the history of this nation.

It is no secret that members of the CBC and Black Americans throughout the country helped deliver a victory for President-elect Joe Biden. The 100 Days CBC Transition Task Force, led by Task Force Chairman Steven Horsford (NV-04), is actively working with the Biden-Harris Transition Team to advance key priorities of Black communities across the country.

We are confident that the Biden-Harris Transition Team is committed to ensuring a diverse representation of highly qualified candidates at every level of the federal government. The Biden-Harris Transition Team knows that personnel decisions are policy decisions and we are partnering with them to achieve key policy priorities in the 117th Congress.”

The CBC 100 Days Transition Task Force is comprised of the following members: Rep. Alma Adams (NC-12), Rep. Colin Allred (TX-32), Rep. Danny Davis (IL-07), Rep. Hank Johnson (GA-4), Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (TX-18), and Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12).
