Congresswoman Williams and Intergenerational Group of Congressional Black Caucus Members Meet with Vice President Kamala Harris
WASHINGTON – This week, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) joined Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) in a meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris to discuss the American Rescue Plan and its impacts on communities of color. The intergenerational group participating in this first meeting in the ceremonial office consisted of Congresswoman Williams, CBC Chair Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03), House Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08), Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (MO-05) and Congresswoman Jahana Hayes (CT-05).
“Living Black history means building a better future for our communities,” said Congresswoman Williams. “Together, with the first Black woman and HBCU graduate to serve as Vice President, I know that is what we will do. Returning to where we were before the previous administration is not enough because that will leave behind millions of Black Americans.
“The American Rescue Plan proposed by the Biden-Harris administration will help Black neighborhoods and businesses build back, and better after being disproportionately hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to working with my sorority sister, Vice President Harris, and my Congressional Black Caucus colleagues as we live Black history by strengthening our power and our message.”
