CBCF Welcomes Bloggers to 43rd Annual Legislative Conference
Bloggers Row Provides Workspace, Access 
The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc (CBCF) today announced the creation of Bloggers Row, powered by USTelecom Association, the newest addition to the Annual Legislative Conference (ALC), held Sept. 18-21, 2013 at Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
Bloggers Row is a special section designed to provide a custom workspace for Bloggers. It will be located on the west side of the L Street Bridge of the Convention Center. Approved bloggers will receive free password-accessible internet service, beverages and access to VIPs for interviews.
“We realize the growing impact that bloggers have in the media landscape as more people, especially millennials, increasingly turn to new media for their news,” said A. Shuanise Washington, president and chief executive officer of CBCF. “The influence and reach of popular bloggers has grown exponentially over the past few years. Bloggers Row offers us the opportunity to create and build relationships with those bloggers and ensure coverage of ALC across traditional and social media.”
Bloggers interested in covering ALC from Bloggers Row, must register using the link for media registration. Bloggers will be notified of their acceptance.
The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s (CBCF) 43rd Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) is the leading conference on legislative and policy issues impacting the African-American and Diaspora communities. Nearly 10,000 people will attend this four-day gathering to develop solutions to the challenges facing Black communities around the world through issues forums, brain trusts, a town hall meeting, networking sessions, and more.
This year’s ALC theme, “It Starts With You,” is a call to action urging individuals to champion much-needed change in public policy. The conference features the Exhibit Showcase, which offers educational, health and business-related opportunities for ALC attendees and an outreach project with Thrive DC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people facing the dire consequences of economic upheaval, including homelessness and housing instability. The premier ALC event, the Phoenix Awards Dinner fundraiser, supports the Foundation’s educational programs, scholarships and research initiatives. The conference concludes with a prayer breakfast that features gospel recording artists, including Marvin Sapp, who will deliver the morning message.
