BOSTON – Eva Millona, President and CEO of the MIRA Coalition, today issued the following statement in response to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ election as President and Vice President of the United States.
“MIRA extends our sincerest congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their hard fought victory. We especially would like to congratulate Kamala Harris for making history as the first woman, first Black person and first South Asian American to be elected Vice President. Her victory sends a message to young people across this country that a daughter of immigrants can be anything she wants to be. We also send our heartfelt congratulations to the millions of new Americans who cast their votes for the first time in this historic election and made their voices heard.
“MIRA looks forward to partnering with the Biden/Harris Administration to repair the harm of the past four years and build a more equitable and inclusive future where immigrants and refugees feel safe. That work begins now.”
