(ABC 6 News) – Members of the Project 21 leadership network called president Joe Biden’s leadership into question after he demanded vaccinations and a renewed push for more testing to deal with the current spread of the Covid-19 Omicron variant.

After president Biden’s speech, Project 21 and other national groups voiced criticism over the president’s remarks saying his unwillingness to pointedly call out how COVID panic pits Americans against each other – effectively promotes discrimination against those who remain unvaccinated.
