On November 14th, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) unanimously elected Congresswoman Marcia Fudge (D-OH) to serve as Chair during the 113th Congress. Rep. Fudge is the first member of the House Agriculture Committee to serve as CBC chair.
The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), for whom we are the U.S. representative, is delighted by the election of Rep. Fudge to Chair the CBC. Given the recent Camp David Declaration and its emphasis on boosting agriculture production in Africa, the timing of her election is perfect. She will bring an important perspective and focus.
