The Portuguese-American Leadership Council of the United States (PALCUS) would like to congratulate President-elect Joseph Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. As a non-partisan national advocacy organization, on behalf of the Portuguese-American community, we are hopeful that we can move forward as a nation to heal divisions and work toward the common good.
Our nation has been faced with many challenges during its long and rich history. But by coming together, it has risen to the occasion and led when leadership was most needed. PALCUS is looking forward to contributing to a peaceful national dialogue that will be based on mutual respect, tolerance and working together to for the betterment of our nation and our community. Lastly, we would like to thank and congratulate the candidates who ran for office at all levels of government, for participating in the democratic process, and in a special way, those of Portuguese-American heritage.
