In a speech broadcast on C-SPAN on September 30, 2022, Kamala Harris said:
“It is our lowest income communities and our communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions and impacted by issues that are not of their own making,” Harris said. “And so we have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality, but we also need to fight for equity, understanding not everyone starts out at the same place.”
She went on to say:
“And if we want people to be in an equal place, sometimes we have to take into account those disparities and do that work,”
