Higher Heights for America is proud to endorse Kamala Harris to represent the state of California in the United States Senate. With her strong first place finish in the California primary, Harris is one step away from becoming the first Black woman to serve in the U.S. Senate since the departure of Carol Moseley Braun in 1998.
As two-term Attorney General of California, Kamala Harris has proven to the naysayers that a strong commitment to social justice and being an effective prosecutor can go hand in hand. Harris has addressed criminal justice by attempting to improve economic opportunity so as to reduce the temptation of criminal activity among so many who enter the criminal justice system. She effectively takes the long view of how to improve the communities of the most vulnerable. Her “unbought and unbossed” belief that a crime against any of us is a crime against all of us will be a valuable addition to the United States Senate.
Attorney General Harris has worked diligently to increase gun control while aggressively prosecuting gun crimes, to reduce recidivism and to fight domestic violence. This has resulted in her winning record of felony convictions for the people of the state of California and made communities across the state safer.
Harris acknowledges that though she is the first woman, African American and South Asian to serve as Attorney General in California and will likely be the first African American and South Asian to represent California in the U.S. Senate, she is committed to ensuring that she is not the last.
To have a leader in the U.S. Senate who is dedicated to addressing the link between poverty and criminal activity will ensure that the vulnerable and voiceless will have a champion in their corner.
"Kamala Harris' voice in the United States Senate will guarantee that the intersection between education, the economy and the criminal justice system will be strongly articulated to demonstrate the impact on Black women, their families and their communities in our nations highest legislative chamber," stated Kimberly Peeler-Allen, Co-Founder of Higher Heights for America.
