Congressional Black Caucus Celebrates 50 years of Servitude and Outlines Future Progressive Works.
Wednesday, June 30, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) gathered to publicly fortify their legislative priorities as the House enters into a district work period. U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) led the assembly by highlighting the current development of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act (HR-4), legislation to establish a commission to study reparation proposals for African-Americans (HR40), and the status of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
Joyce Marie Beatty serves as the U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 3rd congressional district. Since 2013, she has been in that position and more recently, she became the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus in 2021.
The congresswoman opened the floor with reflection of what the Black community has overcome due to the focus and dedication led by movements and diplomacy fighting for human equality and justice.
