Black women leaders are voicing their approval of Senator Kamala Harris as the vice-presidential running mate for Joe Biden.

We come together as Black women leaders to congratulate Joe Biden on his historic selection of Senator Kamala to be his Vice Presidential running mate. We are also deeply honored to congratulate Kamala Harris on your groundbreaking candidacy to become the 49th Vice President of the United States.

This day would not be possible without Joe Biden’s commitment to selecting a woman to be his Vice President. Joe Biden’s wise decision fills us with pride and gratitude. It has been 36 years since Geraldine Ferraro was selected by Walter Mondale to be his VP running mate in the 1984 Presidential Election Cycle. Back then no Black woman was ever under consideration.

Today, we stand on the shoulders of our ancestors, pioneers such as Sojourner Truth, Shirley Chisholm, Barbara Jordan and countless Black women who have sacrificed and worked tirelessly for this historic moment. We honor their wisdom, hard work and talent that has contributed to so much of our country’s progress. They are watching as Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden and Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris, write a new entry into the history of Black women in America.

The Biden-Harris ticket is the leadership America needs at this pivotal moment to unify our country and move America into a bold future. This winning combination will lead Democrats to win the White House, take back the U. S. Senate, expand their majority in the U. S. House of Representatives; and win down ballot races in state and local races across the country on November 3, 2020.

We pledge to our Democratic Presidential and Vice-Presidential nominees, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris that we have your back. As the most loyal voters in the Democratic Party we will bring everything we have to igniting and mobilizing Black voters across all demographics to show up in record numbers because the road to the White House will again be powered by Black women.

As voters we are 16 million strong and as leaders, we are ready to ensure victory in November, and look forward to working with you throughout the rest of this campaign and into a Biden-Harris White House on advancing a bold agenda for Black women, and all of America.

In 2020 we will #WinWithBlackWomen2020!
