The Congressional Black Caucus held the 35th Annual Legislative Conference (ALC), which is considered to be the premier African American conference on policy issues. The ALC provides the platform for the 43 African American Members of Congress to share the progress of their work on legislative items and also allows for the exchange of ideas correlated to policy issues that are of critical concern to their constituents. The event was held from September 21-24 of 2005 at the Washington (DC) Convention Center.

During the morning of the second day, a town hall meeting was held on “Eradicating Poverty, Removing the Disparities vs. the Innate Drive for Survival and Success.” The panel provided an in-depth look into eradicating poverty, dispelling myths, and structuring practical solutions. Panelists offered perspectives and recommended strategies to eradicate extreme poverty. Following their remarks, participants responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
