Condé Nast Traveler: The Election Might Be Over—But Our Work As Travelers Isn't
Updated: Dec 12, 2021
We spent days waiting for the 2020 election results, knowing that the final call would impact the world we live in, and, crucially, how we travel.
At long last, we know that Joseph R. Biden is the president-elect—and Kamala Harris the first female, Black, and Indian-American vice president-elect in U.S. history—a call that sent Americans into the streets in celebration this weekend.
But despite the fact that this changing of the guard has many feeling relieved, our work doesn’t end here. The issues at stake, from racial justice and native rights to the protection of natural spaces and aid for small businesses, will impact travelers. They will also continue to require hard work from each of us.
We asked several dedicated travelers and activists how we can best stay activated and tuned in. Here is a mere handful of the issues they—and we—will be tracking in the days, months, and years to come, in addition to holding President-Elect Biden to his promises (like the 100-Day immigration reform plan and rejoining the Paris Agreement on Climate Change). Plus, we take a look at who to follow for updates, how to get involved, and where to learn more.
