Harris born in Oakland , California in 1964 to immigrants , noted the many milestones in her life story. Noting that she wished her mother had lived to see this moment , Harris said of her mother " she taught us to be conscious and compassionate about the struggles of all people. To believe public service is a noble cause and the fight for justice is a shared responsibility."
At the conclusion of her speech Harris was joined on stage by her husband Douglas Emhoff and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his wife Jill. Tonight Biden will formally accept the nomination with a prime time speech.
