DNC Chair Jaime Harrison and DNC Chair of the Seniors Council, Steve Regenstreif, released the following statement on Grandparents Day:
“On National Grandparents Day, we honor those who occupy a special role in our families. Grandparents are often a reservoir from which we draw strength and stability, acting as our country’s invaluable leaders, caregivers, and mentors.
“Today, we take the time to highlight and reflect upon the significance of grandparents in our own lives and on the contributions they make each and every day. As Democrats, we strive to preserve the programs that protect them, like Social Security and Medicare, and we pledge to continue fighting for policies that ensure strong retirement security for everyone.
“The hard work of grandparents has helped and continues to build the country we know today. Today is an important opportunity to honor grandparents and all they do for generations of Americans.”
