Campbell assured that “as a Jamaican descendant and a proud Afro-descendant woman, I look forward to working together with the Vice President @KamalaHarris to improve the quality of life and promote the well-being of our communities and countries.”

Harris is the daughter of a Jamaican economics professor and an Indian breast cancer researcher, who both migrated to the United States. Harris, an attorney by profession, has a strong professional career that includes being the City Attorney of San Francisco’s office elected district attorney of San Francisco in 2003 and elected Attorney General of California in 2010 and re-elected in 2014.
