Rep. Kelly works to bring needs of African American mothers to the forefront

Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill., is putting the needs of African American women in the spotlight through the work of the Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls. Kelly, who represents Homewood and Flossmoor in Congress, founded the caucus with two other representatives. Kelly said the caucus was necessary to give voice to the 23.5 million black women and girls who should be considered a priority in policy debates.   Over the past three years, Kelly has hosted eight caucus events, including her most recent event May 3 in Matteson that focused on health and families.
