Our Candidates / Delaware / Kerri Evelyn Harris

Kerri Evelyn Harris

Running for U.S. Senate
Election: Sept. 6, 2018

My name is Kerri Evelyn Harris. As a veteran, advocate, and community organizer, I’ve dedicated my life to public service. I live in Kent County, work in New Castle County, have a daughter in Capital School District, and organize throughout Delaware to make sure every person has a voice in the policies that affect their daily lives. I come from a diverse, multicultural family that instilled values of equality, opportunity, and respect for all people, regardless of background. My parents were advocates and organizers who taught us the value of public service. My family history shaped the person I am today, and instilled these core values that continue to drive me. Most recently, I’ve answered the call to service within my Delaware community. Through the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League, I teach young people how to fight for social change. I also work with the Center for Popular Democracy on solutions to the opioid crisis, healthcare, immigration, and taxes.
