Senator Kamala Harris
Kamala Harris will be ready on Day 1. She’s prepared to tackle this unprecedented health crisis that’s killed more than 200,000 Americans. She’s ready to address this economic crisis that has left millions unemployed and forced small businesses to close. And she‘s committed to tackling the deep-rooted racism that continues to keep its knee on the necks of Black and Brown communities.
Kamala shares Joe’s vision for a just criminal justice system. In California, she championed a transformative program to direct young people arrested for drugs into training and counseling programs, mandated police body-worn cameras, and created a publicly accessible database that included deaths in police custody and arrest rates. And in the Senate, she’s pushed for sentencing reform, ending the cash bail system, and outlawing lynching.
Kamala shares Joe’s vision for an America that values workers. Throughout her career, Kamala has prosecuted companies that stole worker wages, put worker safety at risk, and won a $20 billion settlement for homeowners targeted by big banks and their foreclosing practices. And in the Senate, she’s fought to increase the federal minimum wage, create a domestic worker’s bill of rights, and support labor unions. Kamala is ready to help create millions of good-paying union jobs.
As Vice-President, Kamala will help Joe enact comprehensive immigration reform. As CA Attorney General, she secured pro-bono representation for unaccompanied migrant children, and in the Senate has been a leading voice against Trump’s cruel family separation policies and his assault on U.S. asylum laws. As Vice-President, Kamala will ensure everyone has a shot at the American Dream.
Together, Joe and Kamala will fight for women’s equality by ratifying the ERA, protecting a woman’s right to choose, and guaranteeing equal pay for equal work. And lastly, Kamala’s presence on the Democratic ticket sends a powerful message to little girls across America.
