She thanked them for backing her and Biden during their successful presidential election, and asked for their continued support during their reelection bid. 

She told the audience, “There is so much at stake in this moment. Our most basic rights and freedoms. Fact versus fiction. Foundational principles about what it means to be a democracy. And so, at this moment, our nation again counts on the leaders in this room.”
She continued to identify some of her most significant accomplishments, including placing a price cap on medical Insulin, cleaning drinking water by systemically removing lead piping, investing in HBCUs, appointing the very first Black woman to the Supreme Court, and completing an overhaul to expand postpartum care conducted under Medicaid. 

Harris stated, “It’s a good day.” 

“You will continue to help lead our nation forward, and for all of that, I thank you. I am also here to declare we have more work to do.”
The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority aims to facilitate economic and political involvement through holistic health and accessibility.
