Joint Center Quoted in Politico on the Treasury Department Nominee

Joint Center President Dedrick Asante-Muhammad was quoted in Politico’s Morning Money newsletter urging the White House to nominate CFTC Commissioner Kristin Johnson to be the Treasury Department’s new assistant secretary for financial institutions. The Joint Center, along with the NAACP and National Urban League, are a part of a coalition encouraging the nomination of Johnson.
