My name is Preeta Sinha. I am the founder of One Green Planet and I’m endorsing Joe Biden for President.

As a minority female entrepreneur running a company that holds tremendous pride in being your guide to making conscious and compassionate choices that help people, animals, and the planet, the choice is clear. My life and livelihood directly depend on the results of this election, however, I’m one among millions whose future is at stake as we go through a crisis of all economic, political, institutional, public health, environmental, and socio-ideological forces together.

I believe that Joe Biden will work towards making sure that people who are discriminated against due to their race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or religion will be given equal opportunity and treated with dignity. I support his plans to confront systemic bias built into the laws, policies, communities, and institutions of this country. By choosing Kamala Harris as his running mate he has already demonstrated competent leadership in this direction. And no, neither Joe nor Kamala think climate change is a hoax, and both take public health very seriously. But please also know that I’m also keenly aware they have a long way go on many issues and a lot to accomplish and I’m counting on them to get straight to work!

Please join One Green Planet in supporting marginalized communities across America by learning about Biden-Harris minority coalitions and joining these upcoming virtual events with us.

I’d also like to personally thank the very hardworking Biden-Harris campaign staff (Sreyashe, Augusto, Nolan, Atissa, Alex, Nick, and Carmen) for helping me put this together!

These are all ticketed virtual events and we’ll update this list daily until the elections so stayed tuned for more!
