CBC’s Veterans Braintrust Celebrates 30th Anniversary

The Veterans Braintrust for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Inc., conceived and established by Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, focusing on the dual themes of “Lessons Learned” and “Moving Forward.”

Convened by Democratic Reps. Sanford Bishop Jr. of Georgia, Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas and Anthony Brown of Maryland, as well as numerous advocates, the Braintrust sits at the forefront of policy in the House of Representatives and works with veterans’ advocates to present a strong voice for veterans of African descent.

“[The forum] highlighted the myriad of problems, and sheds new light on congressional efforts we must achieve in the 21st century,” Ron Armstead, executive director, and Ralph Cooper, co-founder of National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, said in a joint statement.
