It’s official: Senator Kamala Harris is Joe Biden’s pick for vice president. What an exceptional team they will make … and a historic one, too.
When Sen. Harris accepts the nomination next week at the Democratic National Convention, she will become the first Black woman and the first AAPI woman to be a vice-presidential candidate for a major political party. A daughter of immigrants, Sen. Harris will make even more history — shattering one of the whitest and most notorious glass ceilings in our country along the way if elected as our next vice president.
Time and time again, Sen. Harris has shown herself to be a fighter and an LGBTQ champion. She has been an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ community throughout her groundbreaking career, advocating for us when many, even sometimes those within her own party, did not.
Together with Biden, they make up the most pro-equality and one of the most diverse presidential tickets our nation has ever seen. We need to elect them — and united I know we can! As a steadfast supporter of the Human Rights Campaign, I urge you to join me and millions nationwide as we unite like never before to send them both to the White House.
Alphonso David, President
