Caren Street is a seasoned Capitol Hill counsel with almost 14 years of bipartisan, bicameral and leadership experience. She joined the firm in May 2021 after serving as Chief of Staff to Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) and Executive Director for the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). During her tenure, she organized a National Black Leadership Summit, advised the caucus through the onset of a global pandemic that disproportionately impacted the Black community, and uplifted an historic international civil rights movement where she played a key role in the passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Prior to her service in the House of Representatives, Caren spent nearly nine years advising former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on legislative and policy matters, including business, economic development, federal grants and labor issues, such as Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act implementation, small business Affordable Care Act compliance, negotiating multiple extensions of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program, and the passage of hundreds of bills by unanimous consent. Caren obtained a B.A. from Howard University and a J.D. from the George Washington University School of Law.
