Higher Heights for America PAC is proud to endorse Rhonda Foxx to represent North Carolina’s 6th Congressional District.

Rhonda is the Founder of HBCU House, a platform that works to connect all students to 21st century career opportunities. Rhonda sees the correlations between high quality education and affordable communities where families can support and nurture themselves with living wages and benefits.  As a former Chief of Staff on the Hill for five years, and a finance director on two congressional campaigns, Rhonda has extensive experience advocating for constituents’ needs and she has a deep understanding of federal policy issues. In her role as the Chief of Staff for Congresswoman Alma S. Adams (NC-12), her home-state representative, Rhonda helped launch the Congressional Bipartisan HBCU Caucus.  Under her leadership, the HBCU Caucus launched the landmark HBCU Partnership Challenge (Challenge) a coalition of 38 Fortune 500 companies that have made a pledge to ensure that HBCUs and their students are an equitable part of their diversity and inclusion efforts. To date, the Challenge has raised nearly $1 million dollars in support for HBCU students.

Rhonda began her political career as a Finance Assistant for New York Senator, Kirsten E. Gillibrand. She has served as the national and PAC fundraiser for Congressional Representatives Eddie Bernice Johnson (TX), Suzanne Bonamici (OR) and Yvette Clarke (NY). She also served as interim Campaign Manager and Finance Director to Red to Blue NV-03 candidate Erin Bilbray. In 2019, Rhonda was honored as one of Essence Magazine’s top 100 women affecting change.

If elected Rhonda will champion efforts to raise the minimum wage, advocate for equal pay for equal work. She will also work to promote policies that reduce the cost of healthcare, education, childcare and housing.

History shows that when Black women gain political power, we champion policies that benefit multiple communities.  Higher Heights for America PAC strongly encourages its members to support Rhonda’s campaign with their time, talent and resources.
