About the CBCF
The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) was established in 1976 as a non-partisan, non-profit, public policy, research and educational institute. Our mission is to serve as the non-partisan, policy-oriented catalyst that educates future leaders and promotes collaboration among legislators, business leaders, minority-focused organizational leaders, and organized labor to effect positive and sustainable change in the African American community. To that end, CBCF works to broaden and elevate the influence of African Americans in the political, legislative, and public policy arenas.
With a focus on education, public health, economic development and African globalism, CBCF is the premier organization that creates, identifies, analyzes and disseminates policy-oriented information critical to advancing African Americans and people of African descent towards equity in economics, health and education.
All CBCF and CBC Spouses programs are supported by fundraising events and corporate underwriting. Each year, CBCF sponsors the Annual Legislative Conference (ALC), which provides a national forum to develop strategies and viable solutions to public policy issues facing Black America. In addition, CBCF produces regional symposiums throughout the country to explore public policy concerns and to solicit opinions and recommendations of citizens at the local community level.
