DETROIT – Vice President Kamala Harris is traveling to Detroit on Monday.

Harris was originally scheduled to visit in June, but the trip was postponed due to storms and flooding that affected the region at the end of last month.

Harris will take part in a voting rights listening session at the TCF Center at 2 p.m. on Monday. Afterward, she is expected to speak about Metro Detroit’s COVID vaccination rates during a vaccine mobilization event also at the TCF Center.

At 5:25 p.m. Monday, Harris will speak at a reelection event for Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer at the TCF Center in Detroit.

The vice president is expected to depart Detroit for Washington, D.C. at 6:30 p.m.
