A few weeks ago, I attended the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s (CBCF) 2019 Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

The ALC is the CBCF’s leading policy conference on issues impacting African Americans in the United States and globally.

I attended a number of very informative and impactful sessions, beginning with the Black Women’s Roundtable focusing on the power of the black woman’s vote.

I wrapped up the ALC by attending the “Not for Sistah’s Only” session. The session focused on the importance of getting EVERYONE out to the polls in November 2020!

As a multiple time attendee of the CBCF’s ALC, I always feel renewed and empowered. This year’s Conference was no exception!

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend this year’s 46th Annual Legislative Conference hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF).  The theme of this year’s conference, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC, was “Defining the Moment, Building the Movement.”

Once again, the CBCF provided an opportunity for attendees to gain important, relevant, and timely information on a variety of topics, particularly the upcoming 2016 presidential election! In addition, this year’s conference provided a great opportunity for networking and saying hello to some old friends, while making some new ones along the way.

Gamble 1 editedLast week, I attended the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference (ALC), which was held in Washington, D.C. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. During the four-day conference, I attended a variety of sessions focusing on the issue of Health Disparities, Women’s’ Representation in the Media, Voting in the 2016 Election, and Racial Injustice — just to name a few. I found the sessions very engaging and informative. The speakers were knowledgeable and thought-provoking, and they definitely inspired me to roll up my sleeves and “stop talking and start doing!”

In addition to attending the educational sessions, the ALC is a great opportunity for networking and the exchange of ideas. I ran into some old friends, and made some new ones as well! I am looking forward to attending next year’s ALC – won’t you join me?
