Last night, Hillary Clinton made her first public appearance since delivering her concession speech on November 9. Speaking at a Washington, D.C. event for the Children’s Defense Fund, the organization where she worked at the beginning of her career, Clinton admitted that “coming here tonight wasn't the easiest thing for me.”
The CDF, a nonprofit advocacy group, has worked for more than four decades to combat poverty, prevent abuse and neglect and provide access to health care and education to millions of underprivileged children. Clinton worked with the organization after graduating law school and was introduced by civil rights activist Marian Wright Edelman, who founded the organization in 1973. "I am so proud of her in so many ways," Edelman said, before noting that Clinton continues to lead president-elect Donald Trump in the popular vote. "So we're going to say she's the people's president."
