Carol Wick, CEO, Sharity
Last week: HARRIS MAKES HISTORY: One hundred years after some women won the right to vote, Kamala Harris gave her first speech to the nation as vice president-elect. Harris – who’ll be the first female, first Black woman, and first Asian American vice president – made a nod during her historic address to the “generations of Black, Asian, White, Latina, and Native American women throughout our nation’s history who have paved the way for this moment.” Setting aside politics, It was inspiring to see Harris shatter the glass ceiling for so many. Echoing the spirit of the night, it’s now time to unite America!
- Looking ahead: 2021 LEGISLATURE: Here in Florida, the focus has already turned to the 2021 legislative session. Groups have started outreach to newly elected and re-elected legislators. With COVID-19 “looming over every budget and policy debate,” as Gov. DeSantis pointed out, it will undoubtedly be a busy session. I urge those in Tallahassee to set aside partisanship and look across the aisle for real solutions for Floridians. Also, I wish to extend my deepest thanks on Veterans Day (and every day) to all those who’ve donned the uniform and placed our country’s needs before their own.
