TheGrio Covers Letter Signed by the Joint Center in Support of the First Black Chair of FERC

TheGrio highlighted the Joint Center’s letter of support for Willie L. Phillips as chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the first Black person to be named to this position.

TheGrio notes: “In a July 2023 letter to the White House, the Congressional Black Caucus urged Biden to name Phillips as chairman, joining other groups like the Black Economic Alliance, the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies[,] and the American Association of Blacks in Energy.”
