On behalf of the U.S. fashion industry, we applaud the historic number of Americans who voted in the 2020 election.  Many brands and retailers supported get-out-the-vote initiatives, and gave our employees time off to vote.  We are pleased that the turnout on November 3rd reflects our vibrant American democracy. 

USFIA congratulates President-elect Joe Biden on his election as the 46th President of the United States. We also congratulate Kamala Harris on her glass-ceiling-shattering election as the first woman, Black woman and Indian-American to be the Vice President-elect.  We look forward to working with the incoming Biden Administration and the Congress to find solutions to the challenges before us – especially solutions to stop COVID-19 and to support the economy.   We believe that a fresh approach to trade policy and to American participation in global alliances will support the recovery today and for the future.
