Advancin g Our Purpose , Elevatin g Our Power

We envision a world in which all communities have an equal voice in public policy through leadership cultivation, economic empowerment, and civic engagement. A racially equal world is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical social, economic, and cultural requirement of sustainable success. Since 1976, the unifying aim of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) has been to bring our community together toward the advancement of the global Black community.

We hold genuine relationships with our community and so much has happened in the past year that we would like to help connect the dots with pertinent information, both qualitative and quantitative. CBCF has awarded numerous scholarships, welcomed many fellows, launched hundreds of interns, published vitally important reports and journals regarding issues in the United States and abroad, hosted grassroot gatherings of purpose, and brought together thousands from across the world for our 51st Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. We are proud of thisr work.

CBCF has a critical role to play in ensuring a future that is more equitable and just for all. My commencement of serving as the CBCF President and CEO this year has been rooted in gratitude. hold a steady gratitude for the opportunity to serve our community, to stand in truth, and to act with strength and purpose in a way that leaves a lasting impact for generations to come.

Such a vision requires multi-stakeholder partnerships and the CBCF is indebted to every individual, every public servant, every board, organization, and company that has willfully, loudly, and gladly contributed to and supported the advancement of our mission. This community of support is vital to the fulfillment of our mission and to changing the power structures that determine the future for Black communities.

Together, we celebrate our past success and look forward to the future with courage and hope. Before we expand our work even further this year, let us reflect on the year 2021. We had an excellent one.

With deep gratitude and purpose,

Annual Legislative Conference in review

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation hosted its 50th Annual Legislative Conference on September 12 – 17, 2021. Held in a virtual format for the second consecutive year, the CBCF also honored and celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Congressional Black Caucus and its largest class to date. Conference programming reflected the CBCF’s charge for 2021, a continued commitment to uplifting, empowering, and mobilizing Black communities and the carefully selected theme of “Black Excellence Unparalleled: Pressing Onward in Power.”

Despite the continued health and safety concerns related to COVID-19, the virtual ALC still brought together experts and organizers to share accounts from the front lines of advocacy, spotlight innovative campaigns, foster support for advocacy funding and raise awareness of pathways to be informed and involved in the democratic process. Over 7,200 attendees in business, academia, government, nonprofits and philanthropy engaged on the virtual platform.

This year’s conference welcomed 7,278 total virtual guests (6,659 general attendees, 162 media registrants, and 457 speakers). Of over 7,000 attendees, speakers, and sponsors, the attendee base was comprised largely of female attendees (75%) over 50 years of age (72%) with bachelor’s or advanced degrees (87%). Over 41% of attendees were first time ALC attendees, which is largely attributed to the relationships built through virtual programming throughout the 2020 and 2021 event seasons.

The Annual Legislative Conference raised over $4  8 million dollars in corporate sponsorship from over 101 companies and individual contributions totaling $23,655.

Event content focused on CBCF’s core pillars of education, health and wellness, economic empowerment, and the environment.

Phoenix Awards and National Town Hall Meeting redesigned as television broadcasts in partnership with Black Entertainment Television (BET).

#FoundationFriday and National Black Voter Day on BET served as the grand finale to the 6-day virtual conference and featured the Phoenix Awards and National Town Hall Meeting in addition to a fundraiser, The Day of Healing and The Black Party, hosted on in the virtual platform and on Facebook Live.

Each year, the CBCF’s National Town Hall Meeting gathers renowned thought leaders for a discussion on topics most pressing for the global Black community and this year’s conversation was televised in partnership with BET and BET HER. This year’s town hall theme, “Black Voices, Black Agenda: A New Civil Rights Movement 50 Years Later” was carefully curated to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation while highlighting continued disparities in health equity, education, voting rights, and criminal justice. The conversation, moderated by journalist April Ryan, featured special guests such as Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Joyce Beatty; Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Board of Directors, Lori George Billingsley, ALC Honorary Co-Chairs, Rep. Anthony Brown and Rep.

The town hall was recorded in a custom studio in Washington, DC in front of a live audience of Congressional Black Caucus members and their staff.


As a result of the continued COVID-19 pandemic, the CBCF’s iconic Phoenix Awards remained a virtual program and was televised as the culminating Annual Legislative Conference event on BET and BET HER and garnered over 208,000 in household viewership during its one-time airing. The starstudded virtual awards and entertainment program featured a lineup of notable speakers and performers, including remarks by President of the United States Joe Biden.
