In Memoriam: Ronald V. Dellums
"The CBCF family is saddened to learn of the passing of Ron Dellums, an integral founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and also Oakland’s 48th mayor. As a co-founder of the CBC, Congressman Dellums dedicated 27 years of his life to fighting harmful social policies in the U.S. House of Representatives (1971 to 1998). During his tenure as a representative from California’s 9th Congressional District, he served as chair of the House District of Columbia Committee; and Ranking Member and first African American chair of the House Armed Services Committee. In the wake of his passing, Dellums leaves a legacy that transcends the span of time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Dellums family, and friends and colleagues who respected and loved him."

Multiculturalism Among Sister Organizations!
"An ideal America is a place where many cultures exist, coexist and build on shared values. Multiculturalism is what makes America great. Through the relationships between APAICS, CBCF and CHCI, we have created opportunities for more effective diplomacy, enriched the education of our young people and helped to build a greater acceptance of diverse cultures. I hope our country and this world takes notice and follows suit."
