WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden is launching a nonprofit foundation aimed at promoting equal rights and opportunity.
The Biden Foundation will be a platform for Biden to advance priorities he worked on in the Senate and the White House, including cancer research, military families and preventing violence against women.
Biden says in a statement that the foundation aims to ensure everyone is treated with dignity and "gets a fair shot at achieving the American Dream."
The foundation says it will be funded by tax-deductible donations.
