The Congressional Black Caucus Africa Taskforce will host a forum on famine in Washington, D.C. on April 26, according to the official website for Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Calif.)
Bass — who is the ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Africa — will join Congressman Gregory Meeks (D-NY) — ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats — to lead the publicized meeting. Specifically, the event is a follow-up forum on the challenges facing Somalia, South Sudan and Northeastern Nigeria — places experiencing or on the brink of famine while addressing terrorism or internal conflict.
