Dear Friends and Partners, “People talk about this as a moment, what we all know is this a movement.” – Vice President (then Senator) Kamala D. Harris, CBCF Policy for the People, June 2020

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, along with the rest of world, navigated unprecedented shifts in 2020. And, we embraced this movement. We worked to create safe spaces for our program participants and staff, and we took swift action as leaders in a new era of racial reckoning. In response to systemic injustices felt around the globe, we launched our National Racial Equity Initiative for Social Justice providing an evidence-based approach to inform sound policies targeted to reducing racial disparities caused by racism and discrimination. The CBCF also led a Policy for the People virtual panel series featuring members of the Congressional Black Caucus and subject matter experts engaging with the public on timely issues and paths forward. Our Leadership Institute embraced a cohort of interns and fellows who participated in hybrid and virtual experiences. CBCF programming did not cease as our mission continues. We awarded 225 scholarships totaling more than $500,000, as students experienced unique barriers to higher education in addition to the longstanding inequities for Black students. Due to the global pandemic, the CBCF hosted the first-ever all virtual Annual Legislative Conference. New and innovating conference programming garnered 18,000 attendees and more than 24,000 unique views across 84 policy sessions and signature events broadcasted for the first time on BET networks. We are proud to report net assets in 2020 were up more than $5 million over 2019. I and the entire CBCF community are immensely grateful to our Board of Directors, Corporate Advisory Council, staff, alumni, community partners, and volunteers for their partnership in our continued success. Tonya Veasey, President and CEO

Program participants receive housing, a stipend, office placements, and opportunities to meet and interact with professional legislators and leaders working in all branches of government.

CBCF offers four internship programs: the Congressional Internship Program, the Communications Internship Program, the Emerging Leaders Internship Program, and the Pathways to the C-Suite Internship program.

National Racial Equity Initiative for Social Justice In June 2020, CBCF created the National Racial Equity Initiative for Social Justice (NREI) in response to the historically unleveled playing field for minorities, and the national protests and police killings of unarmed African Americans. The NREI’s mission is to combat systemic injustice and advance racial equity, human rights, education, and economic development opportunities for the Black community. Housed in the Center for Policy Analysis and Research (CPAR), the NREI takes an evidence-based approach to develop sound policies targeted to reducing racial disparities caused by racism and discrimination. NREI also strives to provide solutions-driven and proactive policies and practices that produce equitable access, opportunities, treatment, and outcomes for African Americans.

Publications JCPAR: Journal of the Center for Policy Analysis & Research

AFRICA-AMERICA 2021 RE-ENVISIONING LIBERATION FOR THE GLOBAL BLACK DIASPORA This edition of the biennial publication presents scholarship and perspectives that chart course for the future of Black leadership and advocacy and captures the spirit of modern Black movements. Written by scholars and practitioners for a general, non-specialist audience, the Journal of the Center for Policy Analysis and Research (JCPAR) follows the standard of a peer-reviewed, social science publication and serves as a conduit between research and policy. With just over 10 entries, this issue has a special focus on topics including in-depth and innovative approaches to help advance the study of Black identities, ethnicities and diasporas, and in turn highlights how these perspectives inform representative governance and public policy.
