KEYNOTE SPEAKER: SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS

Throughout her career, Kamala has been a fearless advocate for the voiceless and vulnerable and a vocal and determined fighter on behalf of all people.

In 2017, Kamala was sworn in as a United States Senator for California, the second African-American woman and first South Asian-American senator in history. As U.S. Senator, Kamala introduced or co-sponsored legislation to provide sweeping tax cuts for the middle class, address the high cost of rent, raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, make higher education tuition-free for the vast majority of Americans, reform the cash bail system, protect the legal rights of refugees and immigrants, and expand access to affordable, quality health care with Medicare for All.

Kamala has been a key voice in the fight to hold the Trump administration accountable, asking the tough questions on behalf of the American people.

HONOREES: WILLIAM "BILL" V. BELL & ELAINE O'NEAL

Every year we dedicate a portion of the program to honor members of our community who have made a lasting impact in the Durham community. We are especially excited to pay tribute to this year's honorees.
