Vice President Kamala Harris will be attending the Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee on March 3, the White House announced Tuesday.

U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell also confirmed that Harris will be visiting Selma and said she is looking forward to her appearance.

“At a time when our fundamental freedoms have come under renewed threat, we are grateful to have a President and Vice President who have remained steadfast in their commitment to the cause for which the Foot Soldiers marched, fought, and even died,”  Sewell said. “I am looking forward to welcoming Vice President Harris back to my hometown for a day of remembrance, reflection, and rededication.”

This will be Harris’ third trip to the Jubilee. Harris also visited Selma in 2022 and attended years ago as a Senator.

“During her speech, the Vice President will honor the legacy of the civil rights movement, address the ongoing work to achieve justice for all, and encourage Americans to continue the fight for fundamental freedoms that are under attack throughout the country,” the White House said in a release.
