Foster Statement on Attending Presidential Inauguration

Jan 19, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC - After careful consideration, I have decided to attend the Inauguration of the 45th President of the United States to mark the peaceful transfer of power that has always defined the strength of our democracy and respect for the Office of the Presidency. 

On Saturday, I will proudly join thousands of people in Chicago for the Women's March to champion the civil rights, inclusion, and diversity that make America strong. I will respect the Office of the Presidency as a fundamental part of our democracy, but I will not tolerate bigotry, hatred, and a disrespect for civil discourse. I hope to work with an administration that respects the rights and dignity of all Americans.
