Celebrating the 116th Congress!

Celebrating the 116th Congress!

Celebrating Women USA celebrates the 116th Congress and shares the excitement and hope we all feel, as stated by Ariana Huffington, Founder & CEO @ Thrive Global,

“The #116thCongress isn’t just a new congress, it’s one that looks very different than the other 115 — with over 100 women being sworn in today. It’s a much more representative House of Representatives, and one with so many firsts:

– the youngest-ever congresswomen at 29, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

– the first #MuslimAmerican women members Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib

– the first #NativeAmerican women members Deb Haaland and Sharice Davids

– the first #Latina members from #Texas Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia

– And the most #AfricanAmerican members (53) ever.”
