Biden and Harris to Deliver Remarks on Race and Democracy at Congressional Black Caucus Dinner

President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will speak before the Congressional Black Caucus on Saturday, expected to discuss racial justice, abortion and the state of American democracy.

Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris will make the remarks as part of the CBC’s 51st Annual Leadership Conference in Washington. The event comes less than two months before the midterm elections.

Ms. Harris is expected to address her thoughts on abortion, as well as current threats to democracy. The vice president has recently stepped up her attacks on the Republican Party, taking aim at attempts to propose legislation on a national abortion ban.

“Right now, so-called extremist leaders are peddling the rhetoric of freedom while taking away freedoms,” Ms. Harris said recently in a speech.

The duo’s addresses coincide with the partnership and work the White House has been doing with the Black Caucus, working with them on voting rights and racial justice issues.

The event also comes as Election Day approaches, with Democrats looking to boost black voters to increase their chances of retaining power in Congress and gaining more Senate seats.

Next week, Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff and Biden senior adviser Keisha Lance Bottoms will also meet with historically black college and university scholars.
