Denise Callaway, First Time Campaign Volunteer from Milwaukee: “If I’m being honest, when I saw [Senator Kamala Harris] walk out with him, I teared up — I cried. It is a moment in history that I don’t know I expected to see…It’s very important that as African-American women, we mobilize. Because there’s one thing that African-American women have learned when someone is the first. And that is that we all need to rally about that person that is the first, so we can make sure there is a second, and third.”

Tempest Booker, First Time Voter from Milwaukee: “I feel like my vote counts because the police brutality with our Black men — something needs to be done, because I have boys.”
