Major media outlets have officially projected the historic election of Joseph R. Biden as the 46th President of the United States. It may feel like a lot has changed overnight, but our role in this movement remains the same as it has for 40 years: to fight for our families.

This was not a win for a party. It was a win of the people. People who've been organizing their communities for decades. We believe in community over government.
Elections disempower us to believe we have to choose the lesser evil, we know that we are the ones with true power.
