The Caribbean American Political Action Committee (C-PAC) advances the political agenda of Caribbean-Americans currently residing in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area (DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia).

C-PAC’s overarching mission is to be the political voice of the Metropolitan area’s vibrant and growing Caribbean-American community.



To accomplish our goals, C-PAC will endorse and support candidates for public office in the Metropolitan area who articulate policy positions that will strengthen the economic, educational, social, and cultural conditions of individuals of Caribbean heritage residing in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

C-PAC will also seek to foster greater relationships between the U.S. Federal, State and Local governments and the nations of the Caribbean.Learn More
