The White House
Briefing Room – Over the past ten months, we have made tremendous progress in our effort to protect and uplift the hardest-hit and highest-risk communities. Deaths have declined by nearly 90% in Black, brown, and Indigenous communities. The gap in vaccination rates between Black and Latino/Hispanic adults and white adults has closed. Nearly 100% of schools are open for in-person instruction, offering students more equitable access to academic resources and allowing parents to go back to work.
