Congresswoman Alma Adams

During her time in Congress, Congresswoman Adams has continued the fight to increase the minimum wage; launched the Adams’ Hunger Initiative to combat child hunger in North Carolina; and supported policies to finance billions of dollars of new affordable housing construction. As co-founder of the Black Maternal Health Caucus, along with Rep. Lauren Underwood, she has led efforts to combat high mortality rates among Black women during childbirth and pushed for the Momnibus, a package of twelve bills focusing on better maternal health outcomes and reducing the disparities in women’s health. As co-founder and chair of the Congressional Bipartisan HBCU caucus, she has led the fight to keep Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) as sustainable options for low-income, first-generation college students – just like herself.
