The White House on Friday announced plans to appoint out Pennsylvania State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (D-181) and transgender Middle Tennessee State University Professor Marisa Richmond to serve on the Presidential Advisory Commission on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence, and Economic Opportunity for Black Americans.

In their respective roles as the Commission’s chair and one of its 20 members, Kenyatta and Richmond will join the record breaking number of LGBTQ appointees serving in the Biden-Harris administration.

The White House also noted the pro-LGBTQ advocacy work of another appointee picked to serve on the Commission, National Education Association (NEA) President Becky Pringle.

The Commission’s work will include advising President Joe Biden through U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona on matters “pertaining to educational equity and economic opportunity for the Black community.” “The expertise represented on this commission will be an invaluable resource to our Department and to the President as we work to Raise the Bar in education and ensure that all Black children have access to an academically rigorous education, safe and healthy learning environments, supportive school communities, and multiple pathways to college and career,” Cardona said in a statement Friday.
