What our country witnessed over the past four years and on January 6th, is proof that our democracy's life support system is in desperate need of repair. We're counting on the Biden-Harris administration and Congress to provide greater stability for our nation and implement policies that provide real relief and steady support to people whose lives have been ignored and excluded for far too long.1 Now, the new administration must work to right the many injustices — and crimes — committed by former President Trump and his GOP and corporate enablers.
We're encouraged by President Biden's executive orders that will immediately end funding for the border wall and the Muslim travel bans as well as ending DOJ contracts with private prison companies. But there's still more work to be done to dismantle the terrible policies that the former administration enacted over the past four years.
