President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris believe that invoking community leaders helps build trust in the new COVID-19 vaccinations, especially in minorities communities. Religious leaders across Northwest Arkansas and into the River Valley have done their part, having conversations about the safety of the vaccines and even hosting vaccination clinics on their sites.
