Two longtime political activists, both lesbians of color, have been named to White House communications positions by President-elect Joe Biden. Karine Jean-Pierre, who is Black, will be principal deputy press secretary in the White House, while Pili Tobar, who is Latinx, will be deputy White House communications director, the Biden transition team announced Sunday. They will be part of an all-woman senior communications team, The Washington Post reports, noting, “It is the first time all of the top aides tasked with speaking on behalf of an administration and shaping its message will be female.” Jean-Pierre congratulated her colleagues in a tweet.
