Angela Rye was in Brooklyn yesterday, attending the TIDAL X: Brooklyn 4th Annual Benefit Concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. And she looked amazing.
Angela is an attorney and the Principal and CEO of IMPACT Strategies, a political advocacy firm in Washington, DC. She is a liberal political commentator on CNN and an NPR political analyst.
She served as the executive director and general counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus for the 112th Congress.
Rye began her career in legislative advocacy at the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education, an umbrella association for America’s 120 historically black colleges and universities. Here, she served as the Coordinator of Advocacy and Legislative Affairs. Prior to this, she worked in district office of Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) and served as the Western Region Director of the National Black Law Students Association.
She also served as the Senior Advisor and Counsel to the House Committee on Homeland security, where she developed the general political strategy, focusing on modernizing government contracting practices and opening doors of opportunity for small businesses. She then served as the Executive Director and General Counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus for the 112th Congress. During her time as director, she was “tasked with developing the overall legislative and political strategy for the Caucus”.
