Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to travel to the Chicago area on Friday.
Harris is expected to attend events in both Chicago and Plainfield.
In Chicago, Harris is scheduled to speak at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) conference, which the group says is the largest national gathering of Latino lawmakers.
It is the first time the group has hosted an in-person conference since the start of the pandemic.
“It is an honor to have Vice President Kamala Harris join us as we bring together Latino leaders in Chicago for the largest Latino political convention in the country,” NALEO Educational Fund CEO Arturo Vargas said in a statement. “With this year marking our first in-person conference in three years, we are thrilled to facilitate this great opportunity for NALEO members and Latino legislators from across the country to connect with our nation’s leadership,” added Vargas.
The Chicago Sun-Timesciting a White House official, also reported that Harris will be stopping in Plainfield, along with Reps. Lauren Underwood and Robin Kelly, to focus on the administration’s maternal health efforts.
