Advisory: Vice President Kamala Harris to Travel to Milwaukee, WI

May 07, 2024

On Thursday, May 16, Vice President Kamala Harris will return to Milwaukee, WI for the third stop on her nationwide Economic Opportunity Tour. This will be her fourth visit to the state this year and her eighth since being sworn in.

Vice President Harris began her Economic Opportunity Tour with a moderated conversation in Atlanta, GA on April 29 followed by a speech in Detroit, MI earlier this week. During each stop, the Vice President is highlighting how the Biden-Harris Administration has built economic opportunity, supported communities, and delivered historic investments for the American people. This includes making unprecedented investments in small businesses and achieving the fastest creation of Black-owned small businesses in more than 30 years, creating a record number of jobs, increasing access to capital for underserved communities, erasing medical debt, forgiving more student loan debt than any administration in history and boosting investments in education, making housing more affordable, lowering child care costs, and increasing the wealth of American families. She is being joined on the tour by Administration officials, members of Congress, and local leaders.

Last month, Vice President Harris visited La Crosse to convene nursing home care workers for an announcement about two final rules to establish minimum staffing requirements for federally funded nursing homes, and help raise pay for home and community-based service workers. In March, she visited Madison to highlight the Biden-Harris Administration's investments in clean energy infrastructure and tout a new Executive Order to expand registered apprenticeship programs while creating good-paying union jobs. In January, she kicked off her nationwide Fight for Reproductive Freedoms tour with a speech in Waukesha County.
