Biden Administration Revives Efforts to Put Harriet Tubman on the $20 Bill

Biden Administration Revives Efforts to Put Harriet Tubman on the $20 Bill. Joe Biden’s Treasury Department has revived efforts to make Harriet Tubman the face of the new $20 bill. . White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the news, saying they were currently “exploring ways to speed up that effort.” . It’s important that our [money] reflect the history and diversity of our country and Harriet Tubman’s image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that, Jen Psaki, via Complex. In addition to swapping Andrew Jackson’s image for Tubman’s, production of new notes will involve anti-counterfeiting technology and other security measures. This will require a new high-speed printing facility, which will be ready by 2025. The Tubman initiative was initially launched during Barack Obama’s administration, following a 10-month review that included public input. . The new note was slated to be revealed in August 2020, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. . However, the initiative was suspended until 2028 during Donald Trump’s time in office due to technical issues. Trump was also reportedly a big fan of Jackson and referred to the Tubman initiative as “pure political correctness” prior to being elected president
