Karen Bass - Congressional Black Caucus
Rep. Karen Bass Elected to Lead Growing Congressional Black Caucus

Excerpt from Roll Call

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus elected California Democratic Rep. Karen Bass to lead them in the next Congress, as the group crosses a milestone 50-member threshold.

The CBC is adding nine new members, bringing its total membership to 55. Bass, who currently serves as the caucus’s second vice chair, replaces Louisiana Democratic Rep. Cedric L. Richmond, who took the helm of the caucus in late 2016.

“There’s much work to be done next Congress to ensure equality and justice for African Americans and other marginalized communities, and I am confident Congresswoman Bass will continue to provide strong leadership in this regard,” Richmond said in a statement.

Since its formation in 1971, the CBC has been dominated by Democrats. The group focuses on serving African-Americans and other marginalized populations and in recent years has pursued legislative priorities including a criminal justice overhaul , education opportunities, affordable health care and addressing racial disparities in heath outcomes.
