Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Addresses Health Care Inequality During Zeta Day on the Hill
Washington, DC – On Wednesday, September 18 and Thursday, September 19, 2013, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated convened in Washington D.C. for Zeta Day on the Hill – two days of healthcare advocacy training, strategic planning, and congressional updates– during the 43rd Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s (CBCF) Annual Legislative Conference. Thousands of community leaders came to DC to participate in CBCF braintrusts on topics including health care, voting rights and gun violence, and are returning to their communities with a new charge of civic engagement from Congressional Black Caucus members and President Barack Obama. Zeta Day on the Hill also gave community leaders a platform to voice their concerns about maternal and child health, youth bullying and elder abuse prevention, as well as propose grassroots solutions with government leaders.
