We at Narrative Northeast wish to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their 2020 election victory. Having the first female Vice President and the first woman of color in high office ushers in a historic day for women. In her speech, Ms. Harris mentioned her mother and other trailblazing women who advocated for women’s rights when she said, “I’m thinking about her and about the generations of women — Black Women. Asian, White, Latina, and Native American women throughout our nation’s history who have paved the way for this moment tonight.” She also proclaimed, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last — because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities.”
We foresee wonderful things coming out of this administration — not only for women, diversity and social justice issues, but also for the environment. When Joe Biden and Kamala Harris take office in January, we hope their new administration will quickly begin the process of reinstating the many environmental policies that were rolled back by the Trump administration.
NN wishes all the best for our incoming President and Vice President, as well as for a peaceful transition and a more unified country. — November 2020
