Washington, DC – Today, Representative Lucy McBath (GA-6) was elected as the Secretary for the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). McBath will be sworn in when the new session of Congress begins on January 3rd.

"I was born in the heart of the Civil Rights movement; my father was the Illinois Branch President of the NAACP. In our household it was expected that from the moment we could walk, we'd be marching as well,” said McBath. “I am so honored to have been elected? as the CBC Secretary for the 118th Congress. It is always necessary we continue to forge a path toward getting into Good Trouble, and do the work to make life better for American families. Together, we must build a brighter, more just future for our communities, our caucus, and our country."
