Nevada Congressman and Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Steven Horsford, and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus issued a statement following the ceremonial swearing-in of Representative Gabe Amo. 

“The Congressional Black Caucus is proud to welcome U.S. Representative Gabe Amo as the Caucus’ historic 60th member, and the first person of color to represent Rhode Island in the House of Representatives. Born to Ghanaian and Liberian immigrants, Rep Amo would go on to be a trusted advisor in the Obama-Biden and Biden-Harris Administration and will now serve Rhode Island’s 1st Congressional District and our country at a pivotal time in our nation’s history. Rep Amo will bring to the CBC and the House Democratic Caucus a diversity of lived experience and a shared commitment to standing up to extreme Republicans, keeping our communities safe, and protecting our fundamental freedoms.”
