President Joe Biden’s Remarks at Signing of an Executive Order on Racial Equity

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Good afternoon, folks. I thank the Vice President for being with me today as well. In my campaign for President, I made it very clear that the moment had arrived as a nation where we face deep racial inequities in America and system- — systemic racism that has plagued our nation for far, far too long.

I said it over the course of the past year that the blinders had been taken come off the nation of the American people. What ma- — what many Americans didn’t see, or had simply refused to see, couldn’t be ignored any longer.

United States President Joe Biden.

Paul & Tara

 

Open Table NashvilleNashville, TN – I’ve been thinking a lot about what it takes to bring people into the movement to end homelessness. How do we on the inside bring people with limited or no understanding of complex issues into a conversation that debunks the myths surrounding poverty and mental illness?

It wasn’t the stats or the “success stories” that got me into this work. It was seeing the common humanity and the brokenness of the system. It was meeting people on the street in desperate situations and being broken over their trauma and blown away by their humor.
