“Today we celebrate the triumph of a cause… but we still have far to go,” President Joe Biden, inauguration speech in Washington, D.C. on January 20, 2021.
This is a moment of celebration, hope, and history — and this milestone was made possible by the millions of people of color, especially Black & immigrant voters, who helped get them there.
