It's going to be an enlightening week.
"This year, don't just listen to the issues and attend the events, be part of the change."

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) is upon us. This year, don’t just listen to the issues and attend the events, be part of the change.

ALC is an opportunity for young professionals to connect with our nation’s policy leaders and discuss the issues that matter most with the very people who can implement those changes.

Below, you’ll find an exhaustive list of the best luncheons, dinners, and parties of CBC week 2016. Let the networking begin.
