From Now to Inauguration: A VPSA for Talking About Our New Future

While Trump is still refusing to concede and Jan. 20 feels a long way away, there is still much to celebrate and spread joy regarding the results of the 2020 elections. For one, people came out in record numbers to cast their ballots. We should celebrate the historic 150 million voters nationwide and the nearly 79 million people who demanded change with their votes for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Let’s also remember to celebrate the Black, Indigenous, and Latinx voters who used their votes to make their voices heard at the polls in high numbers, in states like Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Nevada.
