Joint Center Testifies Senate Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee Request on Office of Diversity and Inclusion

The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies joined a cross-partisan coalition of organizations in support of a Senate Office of Diversity and Inclusion (OD&I) for the Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee FY 2023.

This testimony, prepared by Demand Progress, the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund, and the Joint Center, for the Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee, emphasizes that the Senate should fulfill “its mission of supporting the hiring and retention of capable, expert, diverse staff” by creating an independent OD&I office.
