In what has become one of the can’t-miss receptions for young, Black professionals during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation‘s Annual Legislative Conference, IMPACT returned to host their “PREVIEW: A Red Carpet Affair” at the St. Regis Hotel (923 16th Street NW).

The evening honored their elected Leader of the Month, a person who professionally and philanthropically makes significant positive contributions to their communities.  IMPACT presented Steven Jumper, Partner & President of Strategy at the Ghost Note Agency with the award.

During the event, Congressman Andre Carson and Congresswoman Yvette Clarke both gave remarks along with producer Will Packer and journalist Marc Lamont Hill.

Other notables we spotted at the event were reality star Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, Paul Wharton, The Washington Post‘s Helena Andrews-Dyer along with politicos such as David Johns, Kiara and Malik Haughton and Ben Branch.
