Andrea Benito Chino, Staff Writer

Here we go with Part 2 of what Biden would like to accomplish in office! This will be the end of this mini-series, but if you would like more info on each topic, then I would definitely recommend checking out Biden’s website, at https://joebiden.com/joes-vision/

  • People with disabilities. Biden believes that people with disabilities should be treated with respect and should have a fair shot of getting ahead. He is committed to ensuring full inclusion and civil rights of people with disabilities, preserving their economic security, expanding job opportunities for these citizens, guaranteeing access to education opportunities, and advancing disability rights worldwide.
  • Fix our bankruptcy system. Biden wants to make it easier for people with debt to obtain relief. He wants to end the rules that make it almost impossible to discharge student loan debt in bankruptcy. He also wants to address racial and gender inequalities that fill our bankruptcy system, and close loopholes that allow the wealthy to abuse the bankruptcy system at the expense of others.
  • End our gun violence epidemic. Biden wants to ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines, regulate the possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act, and buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities. He wants to require background checks for all gun sales and close the hate-crime loophole. Biden also wants to hold adults accountable for giving minors access to firearms and require gun owners to safely store their weapons.
  • Strengthen America’s commitment to justice. Biden wants to ensure equal opportunities for all, eliminate racial inequalities in the criminal justice system, ensure fair and just sentences, and give second chances. He also aims to end violence in our neighborhoods, help survivors of violence, and prevent crime.
  • Advance LGBTQ+ equality.  Biden wants to protect LGBTQ+ people from discrimination and violence and to support LGBTQ+ youth. He also hopes to expand access to high-quality healthcare, ensure fair treatment in the criminal justice system, and advance LGBTQ+ rights worldwide. Biden believes that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to love whoever they want to love without being worried about being discriminated against or hated.
  • Biden’s plan for the Indian-American, Jewish, Muslim-American, Latino, and Arab communities, and the African diaspora. Biden hopes to stop the spread of hate, restore the American dream for all Americans, secure our values as a nation of immigrants, and honor the diversity and contributions that all of these unique communities bring. Biden also hopes to eliminate language barriers, create a safe environment in school for all children, and provide adequate and affordable healthcare for all. He also wants to guarantee that we end racial disparities and exercise human rights globally.
