The Black Progressive Action Coalition has hired Fulcrum Public Affairs to further its push to harness the political power of Black Americans.
Its mission is to advance a progressive policy agenda that addresses the underlying structural barriers to equality and developing a “roadmap to change” to achieve those goals.
That roadmap includes expanding voting rights and access to ballots; reforming the justice system by ending racial profiling and over-policing; and advocating for economic equity by closing the racial wealth gap via investments in communities of color, housing, and job creation.
Podesta Group staffers Dana Thompson and Oscar Ramirez launched Fulcrum following the implosion of Tony Podesta’s shop.
It stands as the only 100 percent Black and Latinx government relations firm in the nation’s capital.
Thompson, who also was chief counsel to California Congresswoman Maxine Waters; and VP Margaret Franklin, legislative director for Florida’s Al Lawson, work the BPAC business.
