Last week, the National Action Network held its 2022 convention. The New York City-based civil rights organization founded by Rev. Al Sharpton attracted a plethora of notable figures to speak, including New York City Mayor Eric Adams, Democratic National Committee Chairperson Jaime Harrison and various community leaders and officials from the Biden administration. Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Wally Adeyemo, the highest-ranking Black official in the Treasury Department, appeared before the conference for a Q&A session and spoke of the Biden administration’s past accomplishments in terms of economic recovery and support for Black and other marginalized communities.
