Interfaith Alliance Celebrates Inauguration of Biden-Harris Administration, Outlines Work to be Done to Protect Religious Freedom
WASHINGTON — Following the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance, released the following statement:
“This is a historic day for our nation. We congratulate President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, and look forward to working in partnership with the new administration to protect true religious freedom.
“As we look to the new administration with a renewed sense of hope, we are reminded of the critical work that still must happen to protect religious freedom for those of all faiths and none. From combating Christian nationalism and white supremacy, to protecting and furthering LGBTQ+ equality, to strengthening our public schools, we have so much left to accomplish. President Biden and Vice President Harris’s leadership must be restorative as well as forward-thinking, guided by a positive vision of religious freedom that celebrates Americans of all beliefs and experiences.
“The past four years have challenged us in innumerable ways. Our nation was shaken by those who sought to jeopardize one of the core tenets of our democracy — a peaceful transition of power. But even amid violence, our democracy prevailed. We are tasked now with uniting diverse voices to create a more prosperous world for those of all faiths and philosophies. While the road ahead may be long, we are a nation defined by our resilience and propensity toward justice. And through it all, Interfaith Alliance will remain committed to its core mission of protecting religious freedom for those of all faiths and none.”
