Kamala Harris grew up fighting to help fulfill America’s promise for all Americans. Her father immigrated to the U.S.from Jamaica to study economics; her mother immigrated from India. Kamala graduated from Howard University , then earned a law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of Law. She started fighting for working families in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, where she focused on prosecuting child sexual assault cases, and then as San Francisco’s District Attorney. As California Attorney General, she oversaw the country’s second largest state Justice Department, with 4,800 attorneys and other employees, and managed a $735 million budget. She won a $20 billion settlement against big banks that were unfairly foreclosing on homes, worked to protect Obamacare, helped win marriage equality for all, defended California’s landmark climate change law, and won a $1.1 billion settlement against a for-profit education company that scammed students and veterans. Since being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2016, Kamala has introduced and co-sponsored legislation to help the middle class, increase the minimum wage to $15, reform cash bail, and defend the legal rights of refugees and immigrants. She serves on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. On the Judiciary Committee, she has held Trump administration officials accountable and has been a powerful voice against Trump’s conservative judicial nominations. Kamala has been married to her husband Doug for the past six years and is the stepmother of two children, Ella and Cole, her “endless source of love and pure joy.”
