Beyond this historic win for equality, this 2020 presidential election has been monumental in many other ways. 

  1. The 2020 election had one of the highest voter turnout in American history since 1900, with Joe Biden winning over 74.7 million votes! Gen Z voters made their voices heard in their first-ever election. 

  2. Kamala Harris is the first-ever female vice president. On the iconic 100 year anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, this win is more historic than ever.

  3. Kamala Harris is also the first-ever vice president person of color. She is a role model for young girls of color around the country.
