Legacy civil rights groups feel left out of Biden transition…

WASHINGTON — The heads of lega­cy civ­il rights groups say they are strug­gling to par­tic­i­pate in Pres­i­dent-elect Joe Biden’s tran­si­tion, vying to be includ­ed as the incom­ing admin­is­tra­tion tries to make good on a promise to Black vot­ers to be the most diverse in history.

Promi­nent civ­il rights advo­cates say they haven’t been con­sult­ed about key cab­i­net picks and are frus­trat­ed they haven’t met with Biden since the election.

“We aren’t ask­ing for some kind of veto, we are ask­ing for some kind of con­sul­ta­tion,” said Marc Mor­i­al, head of the Nation­al Urban League. “We are still in a wait-and-see mode, but we think that the civ­il rights com­mu­ni­ty should be more close­ly engaged.”
