FIT President Joyce F. Brown has issued comments in advance of the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration. Her statement reads as follows:
The inauguration of the president of the United States is a sacred ritual, a symbol of democracy and the principles on which this country was founded. As citizens we all have a duty to respect those traditions regardless of any personal point of view. I hope we can all celebrate our new president, Joseph R. Biden, Jr., and welcome our new vice president, Kamala Harris, a woman of Black and South Asian descent who reflects the story that is America.
