CBC Applauds Historic Confirmation of CBC Member Marcia Fudge to Lead HUD


WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Chairwoman Joyce Beatty and the Members of the Congressional Black Caucus today issued the following statement on the confirmation of U.S. Congresswoman Marcia Fudge as the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD):


“The Congressional Black Caucus congratulates former CBC Chair and our beloved sister Marcia Fudge on her historic confirmation as the 18th Secretary of HUD and the first woman to serve in that important role in forty years. Although she and her scholarly counsel will be sorely missed here in Congress, her command of the issues impacting our most vulnerable, at-risk Americans will undoubtedly have a life-altering impact on countless individuals and families. Secretary Fudge is uniquely aware of the critical importance of Housing in our constituents' lives and to the American people. She will be an invaluable member of the Biden Administration and a fierce advocate for the American people. The CBC could not be more pleased by her successful confirmation.”
