NYSUT celebrates Women’s History Month — March — with a free poster celebrating Kamala Harris, the 49th vice president of the United States.
Harris is the first female, first Black American and first South Asian American to hold the position. President Joe Biden selected Harris as his running mate after she suspended her campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination; the Biden– Harris ticket went on to win the 2020 election.
Prior to becoming vice president, Harris was elected the junior Senator from California in 2017, making her the nation’s second Black, female senator. She was California’s first Black, female Attorney General from 2011 until her Senate election. Vice President Harris supports equal pay for women, federally mandated paid family and sick leave, healthcare reform and a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. She is a graduate of Howard University, a historically Black institution, and the University of California, Hastings College of Law.
