U.S. Senator Kamala Harris in Atlanta

California’s U.S. Senator Kamala Harris joined First Congregational Church, in Atlanta, today as the speaker for their 150th church anniversary. It was quite a celebration.

“Sister Senator” is how First Congregational’s Pastor Dwight D. Andrews affectionately referred to Senator Kamala today.  She is the Senator that called out Jeff Sessions for his conduct.  And in Sessions’ own words in response to her probing questions, “You’re making me nervous.”

Senator Kamala spokenabout justice, truth, hope and why we need to press on. She is working with Senator Rhan Paul to revise the repressive bail nond system across the nation.  She is a courageous and passionate attorney.  A graduate of Howard University undergrad and U.C. Berkeley Law school.  The daughter of a Black father and mother from India, she has faced her share of social and business attacks. Senator Kamala was the first Black elected as California’s Attorney General and second Black female elected to the U.S. Senate.

Her address to the congregation today was filled with hope as she vowed to continue to speak truth to power and to do what she can to make a difference to reverse the assault on fairness and justice in this country.  The Senator helped inspire the audience for 150th anniversary for this very active social justice church.

Thank you “Sister Senator”!
