Vice President Kamala Harris comes to downtown La Crosse on Monday to speak at a La Crosse Center event.

Harris is scheduled to give an afternoon talk on what the Biden-Harris campaign team calls “reproductive freedoms,” and news releases have suggested she may also speak about other health care issues while in the city.

This will be Harris’ third visit to Wisconsin this year, and her first to La Crosse since becoming vice president.

The last VP to speak in La Crosse was Republican Mike Pence, who came to the city on Labor Day of 2020 for a campaign event at the Dairyland Power headquarters.

Harris is the highest-profile Biden Administration figure to plan a stop in the city since the president himself came to La Crosse in 2021, and made stops at the MTU bus barn, plus The Pearl Ice Cream Parlor.
