Race & Justice Imperative 

A record number of Black Americans were elected to office last year, and 2023 brings the largest class of the Congressional Black Caucus in its history. As Black Americans continue to break new barriers, what can we expect to see in the fight for justice across politics, society, and achieving the American dream? 

During Black History Month, join The Hill for a summit featuring conversations with leading Congressional, governmental, civil rights and social justice leaders to discuss the power of Black representation and keeping up the fight for true equality for all.
