Kamala Harris is the first woman, first Black person, and first Indian-American to be Vice President of the United States.
Throughout her career, Harris has been an unflinching supporter of reproductive freedom. As a newly-elected district attorney, she helped spearhead the opposition to the parental notification ballot initiative as the Bay Area Regional Chair for the No on 73 campaign. For her leadership defending reproductive rights, she was awarded the Champion of Choice Award by NARAL Pro-Choice California.
When elected California’s attorney general, Harris made history as the first woman, first Black person, and first Indian-American to serve as California’s top law-enforcement official. In this position, she worked to uphold standards of care for abortion services when hospitals undergo mergers.
As Senator, she co-sponsored legislation to protect and advance reproductive freedom, including the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA), the Global HER Act, and the EACH Woman Act. Every year she served in the U.S. Senate, Harris earned a 100% voting record in NARAL Pro-Choice America’s Congressional Record on Choice.
