Holding President Biden Accountable

Last month, over 500 people joined with Make the Road Action, CASA in Action, DelACA, CPD and allies in a car caravan with community members from Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware, and Maryland leading the way to Wilmington, Delaware, where we organized a rally to urge President-elect Biden to act swiftly and honor his campaign commitments on critical issues, including immigration, justice transformation, and a just recovery for Puerto Rico. Along the route of the caravan, CPD affiliates placed billboards like the picture above to make sure the message was seen and heard. The caravan was covered by local and national news outlets including USA Today, NPR, Washington Post, Telemundo, and the NY Daily News among others. 

Our sister organization, CPD Action partnered with affiliates CASA in Action, Make the Road Action, to run historic voter turnout efforts, reaching millions of immigrant, Latinx, Black, and working-class voters. We knew from the start that this election would depend on turnout. CPD network affiliates are proof of what’s possible when we do the work to organize our communities over the long haul—not just in election season. Together, our affiliate network made 31,573,580 calls, sent 12,868,360 texts, and knocked on 668,668 doors. With action taken like this, an accountability caravan was necessary to hold President-elect Biden accountable every step of the way.
