(Trice Edney Wire) – The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank for black-elected officials, is in better shape financially than it was two years ago when it was on life support, Spencer Overton, the organization’s president, wrote in the Joint Center’s most-recent newsletter.
“Two years ago, the Joint Center faced significant challenges that threatened the future of the organization,” Overton wrote. “Today, due to hard work, patience and support of many, I am happy to announce that we confronted and completely absolved these challenges. The Joint Center now has a stable foundation, a growing and committed team and a bright future.”
