National Coalition on Black Civic Participation Honors Barbara Lee with Chairman’s Circle Award

Washington, D.C.
- Tonight, Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) will receive the Chairman’s Circle Award from the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP).


“I am extremely honored to receive this award from the Nation Coalition on Black Civic Participation,” said Congresswoman Lee. “Their tireless work to increase black civic engagement and voter participation through programs such as Black Youth Vote and Voices of the Electorate, helped to turn out the African American vote in record numbers during the 2008 election.

I look forward to continuing to work with the NCBCP to mobilize the African American community to tackle head on the issues that plague our community and bring about the change that our community so desperately needs.


The NCBCP has a national membership of organizations representing a diverse constituency base including civil rights, labor, business, fraternities, sororities, women, youth, education, faith, public policy makers, researchers and others. The NCBCP adopted a year-round civic engagement program structure in 2003 and has established twelve (12) state-based affiliates to maximize its ability to increase Black civic engagement and voter participation on a year-round basis.
