CBCF to Announce New Voting Rights Initiatives at 46th Annual Legislative Conference

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Incorporated (CBCF) will launch its 46th Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) with a strong message about the importance and power of the African-American vote—with a press conference featuring its new Voter Protection Series, on-site voter registration opportunities and other resources available during the more than 100 sessions offered during this year’s ALC.

During the press conference, scheduled for 11 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 14, the CBCF will explore the impact of voter suppression on American democracy and public policy issues impacting African Americans. Leaders from both the CBCF and Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) will discuss what is at stake in this presidential election for Black voters—in the first presidential election without the protection of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
