Human Rights First Statement on Inauguration

Michael Breen, President and CEO of Human Rights First, gave the following statement on the inauguration of President Joe Biden:

“As the American human rights organization, we see in the advent of a new presidential administration many opportunities to bring justice to more people in the United States, at the border, and around the world. After the events of the last few weeks, today we applaud the transfer of power, which is foundational to a working democracy, and offer our best wishes to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Tomorrow we continue our efforts to shape and change U.S. government policy so that is more centered on protecting human rights.”
