DEBATE: Senator Kamala Harris on Civil Rights

On June 27, 2019, night two of the first 2020 Democratic debates, Harris responded to Joe Biden on the topic of civil rights saying:

“[Because local jurisdictions have the power to allow discrimination.] That’s why we need to pass the Equality Act. That’s why we need to pass the ERA, because there are moments in history where states fail to preserve the civil rights of all people.”
