President-elect Biden’s theme for his inauguration will be “America United,” his transition team announced Monday.
“At a time of unprecedented crisis and deep divisions, America United reflects the beginning of a new national journey that restores the soul of America, brings the country together, and creates a path to a brighter future,” a statement from the transition team read.
In addition to the theme, the transition also announced two Inauguration Day events.
In his first act as president, Biden will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. He will be joined by First Lady Jill Biden, Vice President-elect Harris, Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff as well as former Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton.
Former First Ladies Michelle Obama and Laura Bush, as well as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will also participate.
In addition to the wreath-laying ceremony, the inaugural committee plans to install an art display on the National Mall. The
