How is the Congress agenda selected?
The CFC has seven issue caucuses that meet between Legislative sessions to develop strategies, discuss issues and build agendas on Agriculture, Economic Justice, Education Reform, Civil Rights, the Environment, Public Health, and Election and Government Reform. There are also four regional caucuses made up of members from community groups within that region.
Delegates from CFC member groups attend a convention before the legislative session where they present the issues they want the Congress to endorse. These issues are considered, discussed and debated. The delegates then elect a broad platform of issues and a priority platform of the ten items that become our top priorities for the upcoming session.
