Tell Governor Newsom: Appoint a progressive Black woman to fill Kamala Harris's seat

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is the daughter of Black and South Asian immigrant parents. She's the first Black woman elected Vice President, the first Black woman to represent California in the U.S. Senate, and only the second Black woman ever to serve in the Senate.

Now, California Governor Gavin Newsom will appoint someone to represent California in the Senate for the remainder of Kamala's term. We believe, in honor of her legacy, that he must appoint a powerful, progressive Black woman to replace Kamala Harris in the U.S. Senate.
