    WASHINGTON—The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) today announces the Sojourner Truth Legacy Project Virtual Program. On March 30, beginning at 11 a.m. ET, the virtual program will highlight the outstanding work of Black women who have dedicated their careers to eliminating systemic barriers and ensuring equity for all as well as recognize the newly-elected women members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

    Black women continue to serve as change agents, from mobilizing the Black community to vote to ensuring the community’s safety against COVID-19. Through that lens, the program will also feature a panel discussion that will examine Black women’s political and community engagement in 2020, note Black women’s achievements and breakthroughs from last year and explore their critical role in modern social movements. Attendees are also encouraged to submit questions for the panel before the virtual program.

    Panelists participating during the program include Bishop Leah D. Daughtry, Presiding Prelate, The House of the Lord Churches, Harvard University Institute of Politics; Letitia James, Attorney General of New York; and Minyon Moore, Principal, Dewey Square Group. Key participants also include Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman, Rep. Joyce Beatty and The Sojourner Truth Legacy Project Chairwoman, Rep. Yvette Clarke.
