With hundreds of bills introduced to Congress each year, which ones are important enough that get noticed, get discussed and get passed?  And how can you find out how your congressman or senator voted on key pieces of legislation affecting YOU?
It may all seem a big blur to some, but the laws of our country should matter to you.

I've just returned from Washington DC and attended the legislative conference for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (http://deltasigmatheta.org)  It's a 99 year old public service organization that examines the issues impacting urban and suburban communities without ever endorsing candidates.


With valuable resources from the NAACP, Delta women discussed tough issues facing our communities before heading for Capital Hill to meet our congressional representatives. 


We'll look at some of the key issues from health care reform to the America's Jobs Act to the foreclosure crisis.  And we'll give you important websites to help you understand how these issues affect YOU.
