Spotlight On Capitol Hill Gives Listeners an In-Depth Look at Initiatives and the Legislative Agenda of Our Elected Officials in Washington D.C., Says Advocacy Group, A Just Cause

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - August 13, 2015) - AJC Radio airs a weekly segment called "Spotlight On Capitol Hill." The segment allows AJC Radio to shine the spotlight on members of Congress and the Senate from a positive perspective. This is a forum for an upbeat review of legislation that covers a broad spectrum of initiatives. The program format allows listeners to weigh in and have lively dialogue with the AJC Radio team.

Advocacy group, A Just Cause, announces today that the Thursday, August 13, 2015 segment of AJC Radio's, "Spotlight On Capitol Hill" will be shining the spotlight on Congresswoman Judy Chu (www.AJCRadio.com, 8-10PM ET).

"'Spotlight On Capitol Hill' is gaining momentum and we will continue to bring our listening audience information about the excellent work being done by members of both the House and the Senate," says Lamont Banks, A Just Cause Executive Director. "We've done spotlights on notable members of the House and Senate like Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D - CA), Senator Patrick Leahy (D - VT), Congressman Charles Rangel (D - NY), Senator Charles Schumer (D - NY), and Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D - NY). Congressman Rangel actually took the time to do an interview with AJC Radio, which was an excellent opportunity for AJC Radio listeners to hear first-hand from a key figure on Capitol Hill," adds Banks. "We do everything within our power to share as much information as possible about the Senator or House Representative," Banks concludes.

"This week we have chosen to shine the spotlight on Congresswoman Judy Chu of California," Banks explains. "As we shine the spotlight on Congresswoman Chu we will recognize her efforts of championing issues like Civil Rights, Immigration, Homeland Security, Small Business, Women's Rights, Veterans' Rights, Human Rights, and many others," proclaims Banks.

Judy Chu was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in July 2009. She represents the 27th Congressional District, which includes Pasadena and the west San Gabriel Valley of southern California. Rep. Chu currently serves on the House Judiciary Committee, where she is a member of the Subcommittees on Intellectual Property and the Internet as well as Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations. She also serves on the House Small Business Committee, which has oversight of the Small Business Administration. Rep. Chu is the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access. She is also a member of the Subcommittees on Contracting and Workforce as well as the Subcommittee on Health and Technology. In 2011, Chu was elected Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, which advocates for the needs and concerns of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community across the nation. Chu founded and co-chairs the Congressional Creative Rights Caucus, which advocates for the copyright protections of those in the creative industries, such as music, film and visual arts. She also serves in leadership of the House Democratic Caucus as a Member of the Steering and Policy Committee. In 2014, after years of work and outreach, Chu introduced legislation to create a National Recreation Area to preserve and sustainably expand access to the San Gabriel Mountains. President Obama followed Chu's call for permanent protection and declared much of the area the nation's newest national monument. (http://chu.house.gov/about-me/full-biography)

"'Spotlight On Capitol Hill' gives AJC Radio listeners an opportunity to hear about initiatives, Bills and resolutions that are being pushed in Washington, D.C. by Congresswoman Chu," says Sam Thurman, A Just Cause. "It also gives listeners an opportunity to chime in on their thoughts about what's going on in D.C.," Thurman adds.

"We make every effort to get a member of Congress or the Senate on the air, but as everyone knows their schedules are pretty hectic. That being said, I encourage the listeners to tune in, because just as Congressman Rangel appeared on the program for a one-on-one interview, you never know what surprise guest might be on the air," Banks concludes.
