CHC Chair-elect Hinojosa: "I am very encouraged by a sense of community as we prepare to begin the 113th Congress. Together my colleagues Chairwoman-elect Marcia Fudge of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), Chairwoman-elect Judy Chu of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) and I renewed our commitment to developing solutions to overcome the challenges in our communities. I believe by working in conjunction with other House Caucuses, such as the CBC, the CAPAC and other Caucuses, we will be able to build a strong base in Congress that will focus on the most pressing needs of our constituents across the United States of America.
CAPAC Chair Judy Chu: "I am excited to be working with Congresswoman Fudge and Congressman Hinojosa as Chairs of the Congressional Tri-Caucuses in the 113th Congress. CAPAC, the CBC and CHC have a proud tradition of coming together to address the needs of minority communities. I'm proud to have such proven leaders as partners as we work together to tackle the challenges facing the American people in the next Congress."
CBC Chair-elect Marcia Fudge: "It was an honor to meet with my colleagues, Chairman-elect Rubén Hinojosa of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and Chairwoman-elect Judy Chu of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus this morning as we discussed our commitment to working together during the 113th Congress. As we continue advocating for the communities we serve, the voices within our Caucuses are much stronger together than they could ever be apart. I look forward to working with both Chairman-elect Hinojosa and Chairwoman-elect Chu next year on ways to ensure no one in our communities is forgotten or left behind."
