Although Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 Presidential Election, her story was still made Tuesday night. 52-year-old Kamala Harris, California’s Attorney General, became the second black woman to be elected into the U.S. Senate.

Reported on NBC, the last black female senator was Carol Moseley Braun of Illinois who served one term from 1993 to 1999.

According to the article, Harris stands for issues that deal with “criminal justice, immigration reform, creating good-paying jobs, enacting family leave and equal pay policies, college affordability and universal pre-kindergarten for children and tackling climate change.” Having a man like Donald Trump in office who is against everything Harris stands for it is great to see that there is someone who will be on our side.
