100 years after the passage of the 19th Amendment, Vice President Kamala Harris is the first woman to ascend to one of the highest offices in our country. It has been a long time coming, America.
This accomplishment is even more significant because Kamala Harris is a woman of color — a Black, Indian American daughter of immigrants. How sweet it is! While the League never endorses candidates or parties, we celebrate the election of a women to the vice presidency, because we cannot deny the historic significance of this moment.
