)-- Advocacy group, A Just Cause, announces that the Thursday, April 28, 2016 segment of AJC Radio's, "Spotlight on Capitol Hill" was to shine the spotlight on Representative Karen Bass of California (www.AJCRadio.com, 8-10 PM ET).
“Thanks to our unique radio segment, our elected representatives from all over the country have the opportunity to share with America their initiatives and achievements in the United States Congress,” explains Lamont Banks, A Just Cause’s Executive Director. “Our goal is to continually bring information to the American people, and raise awareness concerning the many issues we face in this country everyday,” adds Banks.
“Representative Karen Bass is and outstanding woman that’s making a huge difference on Capitol Hill. What really stood out to me was her passion regarding foster care, and protecting the children of America. Her sincere concern about our children is an outstanding way of giving back,” adds Banks.
According to her official website, “Prior to serving in Congress, Congresswoman Bass made history when the California Assembly elected her to be its 67th Speaker, catapulting her to become the first African American woman in U.S. history to serve in this powerful state legislative role. Congresswoman Bass served as speaker during California’s greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression. In addition to helping to navigate the state through a very difficult time, she also championed efforts to improve foster care and quality healthcare for Californians. Also, under her leadership the Assembly fast-tracked federal economic stimulus legislation that aided Californians who have been affected by the national economic crisis as well as jumpstarted billions of dollars of infrastructure projects.” (https://bass.house.gov/about/biography)
