March is Women’s History Month and Radio One Cleveland is celebrating by telling Her Story, the stories of women from Northeast Ohio who are helping pave the way for the next generation.
This week we salute Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge. First elected in 2008, she represents the people of the 11th Congressional District of Ohio.
Congresswoman Fudge is a committed public servant who brings a hard-working, problem-solving spirit to Congress and to the task of creating jobs, protecting safety net programs, and improving access to quality public education, health care and healthy foods.
In December of 2020, President Joseph Biden nominated Congresswoman Fudge to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development. She is only the second African American woman in history to hold that Cabinet post.
