INDIANAPOLIS — Vice President Kamala Harris was in Indianapolis Thursday, July 20, to speak at a private luncheon at the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority national convention.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is one of the oldest historically Black sororities in the country.
Harris applauded the sorority’s activism on issues such as women’s rights and voting rights, and its dedication to registering voters in 2020 during the pandemic and in getting to the polls.
“You showed up,” Harris told the crowd. “And helped elect Joe Biden President of the United States — and me as the first Black woman to ever serve as Vice President of the United States. And so, I thank you, all the leaders here, for all you do.
Central Indiana media reported that the convention, held from July 18-23, was expected to draw 20,000 people and that 7,000 people attended the luncheon.
Harris’ remarks were published on the White House website.
