When & Where
National Policy Alliance
The National Policy Alliance (NPA) is composed of the eight major organizations representing black public officials from federal, state and local levels of government throughout the country, as well as the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, the nation's pre-eminent think tank focused on issues of particular concern to the African American community; and Blacks in Government, which represents the more than 3 million African American government employees across the nation.
Its purpose is to give voice to the more than 11,000 African American elected officials and to the federal, state and local African American government employees throughout the country. Together, these public servants represent not only the interests of the 39 million African Americans, but also the interests of all Americans. For example, the 43 members of the Congressional Black Caucus represent approximately 40 million people of every racial and ethnic group.
