Vice President Kamala Harris to Visit CCSU Wednesday

Vice President Harris Attends DNC Women's Leadership Forum

Vice President Kamala Harris will make a stop at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain on Wednesday.

CCSU President Zulma Toro sent an email to students and staff Monday announcing the vice president's planned visit.

Harris will take part in a roundtable discussion on reproductive rights along with Rep. Jahana Hayes (D-5th District) and Alexis McGill Johnson, the national president of Planned Parenthood, according to Toro. The event will take place in Torp Theatre.

“It is an honor to host Vice President Kamala Harris in the Fifth District. I have worked closely with Vice President Harris during her time in the Senate on various legislative issues, and she continues to be a strong partner in the Administration," Hayes said in a statement.

Hayes is up for reelection in November against former state senator George Logan. Campaign ads supporting Hayes have portrayed Logan as someone who would vote to restrict abortion rights if elected. Logan has denied that.

"The upcoming visit will highlight federal action being taken to defend access to reproductive care. During a time when the rights of women are being threatened, having the full support of the Biden-Harris Administration is critical in paving a way forward where every woman has the freedom to make her own healthcare decisions,” Hayes said.

The CCSU email said more details about Harris' visit, including ticket information, would be released later on Monday.
