President Joe Biden made a stop in Miami, Florida on Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2018, for an event to mark the Women of Color For America campaign.
Here’s a look at what he had to say.
Biden spoke at the “Women of Colors for America” event, which is part of the National Conference of Black Women and the National Coalition for Black Women, which launched this month.
Biden made the remarks during a Q&A session with the group, which aims to help women get hired, promote themselves, and build communities of color.
The event was part of a national conference organized by Black women’s groups.
It was a joint event, as well as a discussion between the president and the leaders of the Black National Committee and other Black women groups.
The president also discussed the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement and how to use the Black Lives Movement as a platform for change.
Biden also said he is working to bring the Black community to the table, particularly in terms of civil rights issues, as he takes on more of a progressive tone than his predecessors.
Biden said he believes that the next four years will be transformative.
“It’s going to be very challenging for some of us to get through that period of time.
But it will be the best four years of my life,” Biden said.
Biden noted that Black women are often the first and last people to experience success in politics.
“They are the ones who get to lead us in these times, and I want to work with all of you,” Biden continued.
“You know, I am a lifelong democrat, and you are a lifelong Republican.
We are going to work together as a team to make sure that we have a positive, hopeful future.”
Biden said the time for complacency is over.
“I’ve seen it all.
I’ve seen what happens to us.
And this time I’m going to keep fighting and keep working and keep pushing.
And that is what I believe is going to happen.”
Biden also called on black leaders and civil rights activists to come together, as the nation is in need of progress.
“We are not going to win this war until we get together as one, and we’re going to get together with each other, and let’s work together, and make sure this is a better future for all of us, and a better world for everybody,” Biden concluded.
