DNC Statement on Diwali

As Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and Buddhists around the world celebrate Diwali, the Festival of Lights, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison and DNC AAPI Caucus Chair Bel Leong-Hong released the following joint statement:

“Diwali is a celebration of triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance, a reminder that even as our nights become longer, there will always be illumination and hope to keep us strong on our journeys. Let us use this opportunity to reflect upon our own duty to help our fellow human beings, assist those in need, and build a more united global community. To all those gathering with friends and family for the Festival of Lights, Democrats wish you and your loved ones a Happy Diwali and Saal Mubarak.”
