ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Operation HOPE, a national nonprofit dedicated to helping low-and moderate-income Americans thrive in an ever-changing economy, announced today that its Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Hope Bryant has been appointed as National Vice Chair of No Labels, a national movement of common sense Americans pushing leaders together to solve the country’s biggest problems. Mr. Bryant will join current Co-Chairs Senator Joe Lieberman, Governor Larry Hogan, and Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. to lead the nonprofit organization that helped forge the bipartisan House Problem Solvers Caucus and an allied Senate group, which was instrumental in the passage of some of the most consequential legislation of recent years, including the historic 2021 infrastructure act.
