Kamala has fought for racial justice her entire career. She knows that we can’t have racial justice without dismantling the institutionalized injustices and biases Black Americans still face in our country—including in our economy, housing, and our education, health care, and criminal justice systems.
As president, Kamala will fight to restore truth and justice in America and build an economy that works for everyone. She’ll make investments that create opportunities for Black entrepreneurs to bring great ideas into the marketplace and grow the small business engine of our economy. She’ll make sure that more resources go to minority-owned small businesses and low-income neighborhoods, and that housing dollars actually go to building affordable units.
And because pipelines to economic opportunity begin with education, she’ll continue her lifelong commitment to HBCUs and other Minority Serving Institutions by making attendance to these landmark institutions debt-free for students and investing over $60 billion in programs that teach and train the next generation of leaders of color.
We can’t secure a healthy and sustainable future without standing up for low-income and communities of color who shoulder a heavier burden of environmental harms and resulting health impacts than white and wealthy communities. Kamala will tackle environmental injustices head-on, so Black families can breathe clean air and drink clean water.
Kamala will also pass Medicare for All, combat the Black maternal mortality crisis, protect reproductive rights, and close the “boyfriend loophole” to prevent dating partners convicted of domestic violence from purchasing guns.
And Kamala will fight for end-to-end reform of our deeply flawed, biased criminal justice system, which incarcerates Black Americans at more than 5 times the rate of white Americans. She’ll drive an end to the era of mass incarceration and ensure that those returning from prison and jail can successfully re-enter their communities.
Standing side-by-side with communities across the country, Kamala will work every day to right wrongs and write the next chapter of justice and prosperity for Black Americans.
