World leaders defy Trump, rejoice in Biden’s win

Congratulate Kamala Harris and Joe Biden for making history!


FIRSTNAME, we did it. For almost 4 years you and the rest of the OD Action community have fought for this moment. There will be so much work ahead, but already, millions — from Dreamers to peaceful protesters and more — do not have to worry that they will be taken from their homes or gassed in the street by the federal government that is meant to protect them. The eyes of the world no longer see America as a horror show but as reason for hope. This is a BFD, and you made it happen. Thank you.
