BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Vice President Kamala Harris will be heading to the Bay State this week for the first time since taking office.
Vice President Harris is heading to Boston Thursday, Aug. 4 to attend a roundtable discussion on abortion rights with state legislators and local leaders. This comes after President Joe Biden signed an executive order Wednesday making it easier for women traveling across state lines to get an abortion.
Following the roundtable, Vice President Harris will then travel to Martha's Vineyard for two DNC financing events. The Vice President was originally supposed to travel to the Vineyard this past May, but Vice President Harris canceled the trip following the shooting at Robb Elementary School, according to the MVTimes.
Boston is the latest stop on a series of trips for the Vice President, who has been making appearances across the country to speak and host roundtables on abortion rights following the Supreme Court's historic decision to overturn Roe V. Wade. Her visit comes weeks after the President went to Somerset to announce a series of new executive actions on the climate.
