She's the first woman, first Black person, first Indian person, AND first HBCU grad to become VP. That's a hell of a lot of firsts!

According to NBC Washington, she spoke briefly at the event. "We need to make sure that our transgender community and our youth are all protected. We need, still, protections around employment and housing."

"There is so much more work to do, and I know we are committed," she concluded.
