What is Policy Now?
The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) PolicyNow.org is a cloud-based web platform offering users access to current data and resources on public policy issues being discussed and debated in legislative bodies across the nation. Through PolicyNow.org, CBCF will build awareness and inform the public about issues impacting black communities. When launched, PolicyNow.org will feature access to reports, research materials, and digital resources to enable users to make better informed decisions about public policy issues that matter most to them.
PolicyNow.org is central to CBCF’s 21st-century strategy: to engage ordinary citizens in policy issues that impact them. Virtual communities have increasingly become the new forum for dedicated people to interact and exchange ideas. PolicyNow.org users will be able to create a personalized experience as they become connected and engage in public policy debates. Their voices will be heard as they create unique profiles and register for e-mail notifications to receive updates and alerts. Diverse content providers who have an interest in communicating with and advancing black communities will provide public policy resources for PolicyNow.org.
