Biden Administration Backs Beatty’s Push for Tubman Twenty
This week Congresswoman and Congressional Black Caucus Chair Joyce Beatty is introducing the Woman on the Twenty Act of 2021, a bipartisan bill to honor the legacy of one of America’s most historically significant female figures, Harriet Tubman, and follow through on the American people’s choice to replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Reintroduction of the bill comes on the heels of an announcement by the Biden Administration this week that they’re “exploring ways to speed up that effort.”
“For several years, I worked directly with the Department of Treasury to plan the release of the new $20 design featuring Harriet Tubman to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment,” Beatty said. “The American people want our currency to better reflect the diversity of our great country. I look forward to working with the Biden-Harris Administration, including the first-ever female Secretary of Treasury, Janet Yellen, to put a woman on the twenty and make the Tubman Twenty a reality.”
