First Lady Jill Biden To Visit Navajo Nation Schools, Health Care Facilities

First Lady Jill Biden heads to the Navajo Nation later this week.

In the State of the Navajo Nation address on Monday, Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez says Biden will be visiting schools and health care facilities. 

“We have been discussing a lot of items with the White House, and we appreciate the resources that have been sent our way to push back on the COVID-19 pandemic. ”

Nez says he looks forward to hosting Biden, tweeting over the weekend the importance of the partnership between the Biden-Harris administration and the Navajo Nation.

Biden will travel to Albuquerque on Wednesday and visit Window Rock, Arizona, on Thursday and Friday.
