This afternoon, Vice President Harris and I met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus at the White House. We’re committed to working together to make progress on everything from policing reform and voting rights to economic opportunity and racial equity.
Jill and I send our warmest wishes to the South Asian and Southeast Asian communities who are celebrating Vaisakhi, Navratri, Songkran, and the incoming New Year this week. Happy Bengali, Cambodian, Lao, Myanmarese, Nepali, Sinhalese, Tamil, Thai, and Vishu New Year!
