TransForm’s Executive Director, Darnell Grisby, made the following statement on the occasion of the inauguration of Joseph R. Biden as the 46th President of the United States of America, and Kamala D. Harris as the first woman and the first person of color to serve as the Vice President.
“A broad, diverse coalition has altered the trajectory of our nation. TransForm congratulates our new President and Vice President on their inauguration.
“It is clear from talking to the Biden-Harris transition team, and observing the President’s appointments thus far, that this administration agrees that justice is a core American value.
“Furthermore, we are elated that a native of our beloved Bay Area will become the first woman and first person of color to serve as Vice President of these United States.
“We look forward to working with the Biden-Harris Administration to bring additional COVID-19 relief to transit agencies, rebuild our infrastructure for a more sustainable future, and bring economic relief and equity to our people.”
