We are eight democratic women of Afro-American, Asian-American, European/Caucasian, Indian-American and Hispanic descent. We are all former presidential appointees from Kennedy/Johnson to Obama/Biden. We wrote this letter to benefit the current and future generations to follow.
I call on Joe Biden, the future 46th President of the United States, and his Vice Presidential nominee to publicly commit to make "great progress" and address underlying systemic racism and sexism in the United States of America. I call on Joe Biden to fill the empty space of past promises of "equality and inclusiveness" and create a government that is #OfThePeople46; to commit to identifying, nominating and hiring a highly qualified, fully diverse and inclusive Biden Administration at all levels of government. It is time for each of us to see ourselves in the images of our Government.
Disclaimer: All of your answers will be kept confidential and will only be used in the aggregate.
The letter and an accompanying signature page will be delivered to Joe Biden prior to the Democratic Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin August 10-14th, 2020.
I understand by signing this letter that my name will be included in the list of signatories accompanying the letter.
