Congressional Staff Are Organizing To Make The People Who Work On Capitol Hill Less White
Members of Congress are now more racially and ethnically diverse than ever before. The people who work for those politicians are still overwhelmingly white.
A new staff-led organization on the Hill plans to change that. The Congressional Progressive Staff Association, which went public Monday morning, is recruiting current Hill staffers to strengthen progressive efforts on the Hill and, two organizers told BuzzFeed News, aiming to bring in more candidates from underrepresented backgrounds.
