As Harris Prepares for Pence Debate, Asian American Women Pay Tribute to Their Immigrant Mothers, Grandmothers

As Democratic nominee Kamala Harris takes the debate stage tonight against Vice President Mike Pence, Asian American Pacific Islanders across the nation are showing support for Harris by tweeting images and the stories of their mothers and grandmothers.

Harris, the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants, made headlines in August after being selected as Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, making her not only the first Black women to be on a major party’s ticket, but the first Asian American woman, too.
