Washington, D.C. — Today, Vice President Biden’s campaign released a Latino agenda that reaffirms his commitment and promise to support the Latino community. As the first Latino organization to endorse Vice President Biden, Latino Victory applauds his focus on helping our community thrive starting on day one of his administration while also tackling long-standing systemic barriers that will help level the playing field for the Latino community.
Statement from Nathalie Rayes, Latino Victory Fund president & CEO:
“We applaud Vice President Biden for his steadfast commitment to helping the Latino community. His plan addresses central issues that matter most to our community, including access to affordable health care and high-quality education, good-paying jobs, and a commitment to introducing comprehensive immigration reform within his first week in office.
“His plan underscores that Latinos’ access to affordable, high-quality health care beyond the Covid-19 crisis is imperative. Latinos are disproportionately affected by the pandemic, leading to a greater racial, wealth, opportunity, and jobs gap for too many. In his plan, Vice President Biden reaffirms his commitment to ensuring that the Latino community is seen, heard, and valued in every part of society, including the government and his administration. Latino Victory is proud to support Vice President Biden and will continue to work to mobilize Latinos to vote for him this November.”
