About this event

Each year the Congressional Black Caucus host its Annual Legislative Conference here in D.C. with the goals of developing leaders, inform policy and to educate the public. With the help of UNCF, Ghost Note Agency, Microsoft and Capital Cause, we have curated an evening of innovation targeting millennials who are addressing key issues that face our generation.
