For Immediate Release:
Petersburg — Delegate Lashrecse Aird (HD63) released the following statement in
response to President Biden’s joint address to Congress:
“Last night, President Biden laid out a roadmap to a vividly hopeful future — one where all children have the tools they need to thrive, where all mothers have access to essential services and all Americans can afford to live dignified lives.
For leaders at every level, our actions and our words must always come from a place of service, for the mark of a true leader, is how willing we are to build a better future for the most marginalized among us.
We are living at such a decisive moment in our nation’s history. As we emerge from this pandemic, we must never forget the vast inequities this crisis has exposed and commit ourselves to rebuild our communities without leaving anyone behind. It was so
powerful to listen to President Biden reiterate his determination to uplift and empower all Americans in the months and years ahead.
His words remind me of how inspired, invigorated, and humbled I am to serve our community as we continue to work together to build a future we can all be proud of.”
