Senator Kamala Harris Is Laser Focused On 2018

 

 

Senator Kamala Harris‘ name is constantly being tossed around in the list of possible contenders to make a run for president in 2020.

However, the Howard University alum is encouraging people to focus on the problems impacting our communities in 2018.

She explained on the Tom Joyner Morning Show,

“Right now I am focused on today. I’m focused on the election of 2018. You know I’ve seen so many people focus on that thing down the road, that they trip over the thing right in front of them. And we cannot afford to trip, when we’re looking at a situation where you’ve got an attorney general who is trying to bring back the war on drugs and resuscitate mandatory minimum sentences.”

Adding,

“We cannot fail to see what’s in front of us in terms of the epidemic of gun violence… There is what’s happening right now, in today, in terms of the threat to deport all these young dreamers and just forces right now in our country that our trying to sell hate and division. We’ve got a fight in front of us right now. So, that’s what I’m focused on.”

Although she may be shying away from looking too far in the future, she has been taking a look back at our history to promote change and equality across the country. She’s working to have Shirley Chisholm honored in the United States capitol and she’ll be in attendance at the 53rd Anniversary Bridge Crossing in Selma, Alabama.
