    our power in this country, and to honor the next era of American leadership in
    President Biden and Vice President Harris.”

    congratulations to President-elect Joseph Biden Jr. and Vice President-elect
    Kamala Harris and are delighted to host an event to lift Latino voices in
    tribute to their inauguration, along with more than 50 of our fellow Latino
    national organizations, Latino elected and appointed leaders, and Latino
    celebrities and artists. We look forward to working together to fulfill the
    promise and hope that our communities have placed in the next Administration to
    ensure our issues are addressed, and pledge to do our part to help bring our
    country together to heal, rebuild, and prosper.”
