GREENSBORO, N.C. — Vice President Kamala Harris makes her second stop to North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University (NC A&T) on Friday as part of her "Fight for Our Freedoms" college tour.
She'll speak to students on key issues that disproportionately impact young people across the country - from reproductive freedom and gun safety to climate action, voting rights, LGBTQ+ equality, and book bans, according to the White House.
NC A&T is one of few destinations for Harris, who will be accompanied by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, and NC A&T Alumnus, Michael Regan.
Simmons said she will be joined by NC A&T alumnus, Micheal Regan, who serving as the 16th Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Regan and Oscar-winning producer, actor and entertainment reporter, also NC A&T alumnus, Terrence J, will co-moderate a discussion with Harris that will include questions from students in the audience.
“This generation is critical to the urgent issues that are at stake right now for our future,” said Vice President Harris in a White House press release. "It is young leaders throughout America who know what the solutions look like and are organizing in their communities to make them a reality."
According to the White House, the roster of schools will include historically Black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving institutions, community colleges, apprenticeship programs, and state schools.
Harris will visit these locations on her tour:
- Hampton University in Hampton, VA on 9/14
- North Carolina A&T in Greensboro, NC on 9/15
- Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA on 9/26
- University of Wisconsin-Madison in Madison, WI
- College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, NV
- Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ
The White House said additional campus visits will be announced.
