Statement from, Executive Director, Yomika Bennett on Hakeem Jeffries

Congratulations to the newly elected House Democratic Leader, Hakeem Jeffries. This is a historic moment, not only because we are witnessing the first Black leader of either party in Congress, but because of what Rep. Jeffries stands for. He has done great things in the district he represents in New York. I look forward to his leadership. I am excited to see what he does next for our nation.
