At this year’s Essence Festival, Vice President Kamala Harris spoke to a standing-room-only crowd at the Global Black Economic Forum and told Americans what’s at stake:

“When the United States Supreme Court essentially told this individual, who has been convicted of 34 felonies, that he will be immune from essentially the activity he has told us he is prepared to engage in if he gets back into the White House. Understand what we all know; in 122 days, we each have the power to decide what kind of country we want to live in. Understand what we know; when there has been a full-on intentional attack against hard-fought, hard-won freedoms and rights. When I talk about the family that raised me, yes, they took me in a stroller as they were marching and shouting for justice, knowing that justice will not be achieved unless we are prepared to march and shout and fight for it.”
