Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors in a letter to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Black people ''want something for our vote.''

''We want to be heard and our agenda to be prioritized,'' Cullors wrote to Biden and running mate Kamala Harris on Saturday, according to Fox News.

"Without the resounding support of Black people, we would be saddled with a very different electoral outcome. In short, Black people won this election."

Cullors also requested a meeting with Biden, who was announced the winner of the 2020 presidential election by several news outlets.

Newsmax TV has yet to call the race and President Donald Trump, citing voter fraud, refuses to concede.

Biden, in an acceptance speech Saturday, thanked Black voters for their support.  

''The African American community stood up again for me. They always have my back, and I’ll have yours,'' Biden said at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware. ''I said from the outset I wanted a campaign that represented America, and I think we did that. Now that’s what I want the administration to look like.''

Cullors also reminded Biden and Harris that they both "expressed regrets regarding your record on issues impacting Black people," and advised them to "take your direction from Black grassroots organizers that have been engaged in this work for decades, with a legacy that spans back to the first arrival of enslaved Africans." 

"We would like to be actively engaged in your Transition Team's planning and policy work," Cullors said. "Let's get to work!"
