WE ARE

pam-queen-maryland-state-delegate_25281238265_oThe Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland, Inc. (LBCM) was founded with the mission of ensuring that Black people in the state of Maryland were equally protected and benefited by the promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as afforded by the U.S. Constitution. Since the 1970s, the black legislators and community leaders, who serve as members and partners of the LBCM have stood steadfast and united in articulating public policy positions that promote Black progress in Maryland. To fulfill this mission, the Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland, Inc. serves as a legislative body for the Black community, and in doing so, has formed an effective statewide network of experts and resources that allow the Caucus to provide the indispensable leadership in research, development, advocacy, and implementation of policies (and programs) that best serve the black community.
