Brooklyn’s Democratic representatives are expressing excitement over California Senator Kamala Harris’ historic vice-presidential nomination, which makes her both the first Black and first Indian-American woman to be picked for the position.

“At a time when our nation is engulfed in movements for racial equity and justice, California Senator Kamala Harris has made history as the first Black woman vice-presidential nominee,” said City Councilwoman Farah Louis, who represents the neighborhoods of Flatbush, East Flatbush, Midwood, Marine Park, Flatlands, and Kensington. “Women have been at the forefront of every civil and human rights movement and now we stand ready to take our seat at the table in the White House.”

Senator Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s selection as his running mate, appears on stage at a First in the West Event at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas in 2019. Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City
