Progress Michigan on Biden/Harris Inauguration

MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan released the following statement from Executive Director Lonnie Scott regarding the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris:

“Today, along with folks across the country, we celebrate the return of empathy, kindness and conscience to the White House. We arrived at this moment thanks to the hard work of many and we are proud of what we were able to accomplish together. The election and swearing in of America’s first Black, Southeast Asian, female vice president shows a current of progress flowing through our country, one that will help guide us toward equitable representation in all levels of government. No doubt there are challenges ahead and we won’t soon forget those who sought to lie and bully their way into power, but today is a good day and hopefully the first step toward healing for this nation.”
