Kamala Harris Cropped

Vice President Kamala Harris will address the 113th NAACP National Convention on Monday. NAACP President Derrick Johnson released the following statement:

"We could not be more excited to welcome the Vice President to the 113th NAACP Convention. Over the last 113 years, we've welcomed Presidents and Vice Presidents, from Eisenhower, Kennedy, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Biden and Obama. But we've never welcomed a Black woman vice president. That is evidence of progress. It is evidence of power. The Vice President has been a steady voice in the fight for voting rights, reproductive rights, and other assaults by the far-right on our freedoms. We are honored to have the Vice President join us in this critical and pivotal moment for our democracy. It is essential people go out and vote this November, and that will be the focus of this year's convention."
