Vice President Kamala Harris, in a significant move, brought her economic opportunity tours to Atlanta to visit the 38th Conference of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. This pivotal stop was to discuss economic empowerment with the audience, underlining the importance of the event.

The Vice President, in a thought-provoking discussion moderated by entertainer Steve Harvey, emphasized her message on economic empowerment. “It’s about giving people the opportunity to compete, to allow hardworking individuals to not just get by, but to get ahead,” said Vice President Kamala Harris.
