Biden, Harris Meet for First Time with Congressional Black Caucus Members

President Joe Biden along with Vice President Kamala Harris met Tuesday at the White House with leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus for the first time, with the conversation topics including skepticism of coronavirus vaccines and the police shooting of another unarmed Black man Sunday in Minnesota.

The meeting, which included House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) and CBC Chair Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), “was the first of many to come” between the White House and the group, Beatty said.

“We had an amazing meeting where we were able to share our thoughts and ideas, but we also came because we know there will be challenges,” Beatty said, USA Today reported.

The meeting touched on a number of subjects, including police brutality, voting rights and inequities in education, environmental protection, medical access, housing and affordable, nutritious food.

The ongoing pandemic was high on the list, with Beatty asserting that vaccine access, not hesitancy, in the Black community is the chief concern.

“It is having access to it, it is needing more education and awareness, it is transportation,” Beatty said, USA Today reported.
