JOSEPH R. BIDEN has been elected as the 46th President of the United States of America. Pictured above, the President-elect and Madame Vice President Kamala Harris are standing with their hands held high, you can easily see their smiles in their eyes, though hidden safely behind their masks.
We all voted and the people, were finally heard! Solidarity&co. wants to shoutout and commend the new leaders of our country as they played fair and won big! Mostly though, the Black women in this country stood up for ourselves, our families, and our communities like never before.
Special recognition goes out to the Stacey Abrams, who was instrumental in flipping Georgia and guaranteeing this election, and the co-founding mothers of the Black Lives Matter Movement, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi, for making constructing the largest Civil Rights movement in history.

Mutual aid projects are a form of political participation in which people take responsibility for caring for one another and changing political conditions, as per wikipedia.
