  • VICTORY FOR AMERICA

    Congratulations to our President and Vice President Elect!

    "A new day has come to America and the world. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have won the White House, and democracy will prevail!

    Joe Biden will be a president for all America, healing the divisions that have so fragmented the country. He is a thoughtful statesman, and an experienced legislator and leader, but above all he is a truly empathetic and kind person.

    We are thrilled to have elected Kamala Harris as Vice President. A groundbreaking leader, her legal and senatorial careers have more than demonstrated her keen intelligence, progressive values, and ability to build coalitions. She will be a role model for generations.

    Thank you to all of our voters and volunteers for your efforts! We have risen to the challenge of our time, and our votes have been the margin of victory in this historic win.

    We look forward to working with the 117th Congress and Biden administration to bring our voices to the table in the coming months."

    LETTER FROM THE EDITORS

    Looking forward with optimism

    (Co-editor Sarah Fancy has had COVID-19 since before Christmas and is recovering at her home in Germany. The Newsletter team sends her warm wishes for a speedy recovery.)

    This month’s Democrats Abroad LGBTQ+ Newsletter theme is “Looking forward with optimism.” We believe that regardless of what happened on January 6 in the Capitol, we are hopeful. The silver lining to the tumult is that, finally, Trump, most congressional Republicans, QAnon and right-wing media are now exposed as frauds. After all, Trump made history as the only president in American history to be impeached twice!

    As this hope moves us forward, let us remember Abraham Lincoln’s words: “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
