VP Harris at climate crisis conversation in Arvada
United States Vice President Kamala Harris arrived Monday afternoon in the Denver metro area for a visit focused on the climate crisis.
Harris will participate in a moderated conversation at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities at 3 p.m. focused on the Biden administration’s investments to combat the climate crisis, the vice president’s office said in a news release.
Among the topics Harris will cover is the administration’s ongoing efforts to build a new “clean energy economy that works for all,” according to the release.
Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff are scheduled to depart DIA at 5:25 p.m.
During a similar discussion at Georgia Tech last month, Harris touched on topics including droughts, alternative forms of clean energy, clean water and how environmental concerns can impact public health.
The last time Harris visited Colorado was March 2021. She met with small business owners as Biden administration officials fanned out across the country to promote a recently passed COVID-19 relief package.
