NEW YORK, N.Y., July 9, 2009 – Participants in the prestigious Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) Internship Program attended a reception held at New York Life Insurance Company.

This is the ninth year the program has been funded in part by a grant from the New York Life Foundation. The program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to work on Capitol Hill with a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Inc.
