The politics of real representation

Big ups for Rep. Karen Bass! She is the ranking member of the Africa sub-committee in Congress (proper name Sub-Committee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations). As such, she is the number-one congressional advocate for increasing ‘trade, not aid’ benefits from the USA to Africa.
