Black Caucus Talks Jobs, Recovery With Obama

 

WASHINGTON - Congressinal Black Caucus Chairman Emanuel Cleaver, II released the following statement after meeting with President Barack Obama alongside the Members of the National Policy Alliance:

 

“Today I joined fellow members of the National Policy Alliance to meet with President Barack Obama. We had fruitful conversations on job creation and the devastating impact the economy has had on the African American community. Over 15.7 % of African Americans are out of work and that is unacceptable. We remain committed to working with the President to ensure that our community has equal access to opportunities.  

 

I personally expressed my concern to President Obama on the pending cuts to Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), which provides funding for local governments to carry out a wide range of community development activities ranging from housing to economic development and public service. I believe that this is a time when we should increase funding for CDBG, not cut it. Our community continues to suffer tremendously from the recession, and we will be one of the last to recover. There is no fairness to rebuilding our economy on the backs of Americans who can least afford it.

 

The Congressional Black Caucus will continue to observe this issue very closely in the coming weeks.”
