First lady Jill Biden is bringing five guests virtually to President Joe Biden’s first joint address to Congress Wednesday, among them being a gun violence prevention advocate and a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipient.

Usually, first ladies invite guests in-person to watch presidential addresses in the Capitol, but amid the coronavirus pandemic, attendance has been limited to 200 lawmakers, Biden administration officials and staff.

All five of the first lady’s guests will “personify some of the issues or policies that will be addressed by the President in his speech,” according to a release, suggesting Biden will touch on immigration, the coronavirus pandemic, gun laws, education, LGBTQ issues, racial justice and broadband access. During the address Wednesday night, Biden will unveil his broad “American Families Plan.”
