Joint Center Urges Trump to Appoint Blacks, Latinos to New Administration

The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies in Northwest recently sent a letter to President-Elect Donald Trump as he and his transition team move forward urging him to hire Blacks and Latinos for federal government positions. So far, the Joint Center has more than 100 people who applied through the Black Talent Initiative interested in various federal jobs. The Center will rank each candidate and send the information to the Trump administration. Although Blacks and Latinos represent 30 percent of the population, they represented only 9 percent of appointees in the last full non-election year in the Bush administration in 2007. In addition, only 3 percent of those groups are represented in the Senate.

“We would like to work with you to identify strong candidates of color for federal appointments,” the Center stated in its November 9th letter. “Federal appointments are important to all Americans.”
