The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's (CBCF) 44th Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) is the premier conference on legislative and policy issues impacting the African-American community. Save the date for ALC, Sept. 24-27, 2014. The Authors Pavilion is open during the entire conference! Follow the information here: http://www.cbcfinc.org
Thousands of attendees from across the country and around the world attend this four-day conference to learn about the challenges and opportunities facing black America and the Diaspora. ALC provides the platform for collaboration and policy development to occur among international, national, state and local leaders and their constituents through regional forums, national summits, and policy-centered conferences. This year's ALC theme, It Starts With You, is a call to action to be and lead the positive change needed in public policy. ALC provides an African-American perspective on public policy with thought-provoking and educational policy forums, community education workshops and policy briefs.
Coupled with CBCF's stellar Leadership Institute for Public Service (LIPS), which has provided thousands of internships and fellowships as well as CBCF's more than $10 million in scholarships awarded to African-American students, CBCF has become the standard bearer of changing the landscape on Capitol Hill.
