For African Americans, the barriers to entry for access to Capitol Hill are high. The number of minorites among top senate staffers are dismally low and the standard for diversity is non-exisit. This has been the norm for far too long and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc., (CBCF) is commited to changing the trajectory of this trend through their #GivingTuesday campaign: "Go ALL In" (#GoALLin).
This year’s theme, “Go ALL In” (#GoALLin) is a clarion call that highlights the critical need for programs like the CBCF’s Leadership Institute to bring talented African-Americans to Capitol Hill. The CBCF's Leadership Institute provides internships and fellowships that paves the way for today's students to become tomorrow's change agents. You can play a major role in making sure the next generation of leaders are not inhibited by financial restraints by making a tax-deductable gift that will directly support CBCF"s scholarship, fellowship and internship programs.
Go ALL in today and donate to the CBCF to make sure Capitol Hill is inclusive and reflects the diverse country in which we live. We can't afford not to.
This is more than just a cause -- this is our legacy.
