The fog is lifting.

We will build a world defined by compassion, freedom, health, and opportunity for all — founded on love for each other and rooted in our common humanity — a world where our commitment to human rights is too strong to be broken by greed, cruelty, and hate.

The Beloved Community is not a utopia, nor is it a place without tension or dispute.

It is a realistic and necessary ambition. It is our destination.

Poverty, violence, and racism are not necessary or inevitable.

Humanity can overcome them within a generation, and realize Dr. King’s dream of the Beloved Community.

Feel it, know it, believe it, work for it.

The future is bright. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for this victory.

We don't have to accept that poverty or racism or violence are inevitable or necessary.

We can dream about higher and higher heights.

We can dream about –– and build –– the Beloved Community that King and Lewis urged us to strive for.

Even though the man who incited that insurrectionist attack on the U.S. Capitol will soon be out of office, we have hard work to do to repair our struggling democracy, heal our wounds, & establish politics based on love for each other rather than fear, hate, and corruption.

On Wednesday, we all watched the events unfolding in our nation’s capital in horror.

Only thanks to the overwhelming support of Black voters in Georgia have I been elected to the Senate, where I will work tirelessly to expand justice & equity, to strengthen civil rights, to end racial disparities in health care & economic opportunity, & defend the right to vote.

And now a Jewish man he mentored and a Black man who was his pastor have been elected to represent the State of Georgia in the U.S. Senate.

I know Congressman Lewis is looking down on us today beaming with optimism.

Congressman Lewis was one of the most important people in my life.

When we first shared a meal, many years ago, he wanted to speak with me about the importance of the alliance between Blacks and Jews in the American South.

This victory was built on years of hard and smart work by organizers and activists across Georgia. And was only possible thanks to the heroism of civil rights heroes like John Lewis and Amelia Boynton, who put their lives on the line decades ago fighting for voting rights.

I humbly thank the people of Georgia, who have entrusted me with the representation of our great state in the U.S. Senate.

My team is working diligently on the transition so we can begin to deliver results immediately upon taking office.

Today’s insurrectionist attack on the U.S. Capitol was incited by Trump’s poisonous lies & flagrant assault on our Constitution.

The GOP must discard and disavow Trump once and for all, end its attacks on the electoral process, & commit fully to the peaceful transfer of power.

Quoted @JoeBiden

I called Reverend Warnock and Jon Ossoff this morning to congratulate them on their hard-fought campaigns. Georgia voters delivered a resounding message yesterday: they want action on the crises we face and they want it right now. Together, we'll get it done.

Thank you for your call, Mr. President-Elect.

I’m looking forward to working with you to get financial relief directly to the people, beat COVID-19, and build a healthier, more prosperous, more just America for all.
