Washington, D.C. – “Congresswoman Barbara Lee is a pioneering figure and exceptional Member of Congress who possesses both the exemplary leadership and sound legislative judgment necessary to propel the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) forward in the 111th Congress.
“The African-American community and other communities of color will face many daunting challenges in the next Congress from combating high unemployment and record foreclosures to attempting to eradicate the persistent presence of poverty that has destabilized many minority neighborhoods. Congresswoman Lee has the foresight, zeal and legislative proficiency to ensure that the CBC continues to play a pro-active role in the development of sensible bipartisan initiatives that properly address our nation’s most pressing problems.
“I commend Congresswoman Lee on her magnificent feat and look forward to working with her in pushing our country in a new and more promising direction in the 111th Congress.”
