The Truths We Hold: An American Journey
- Hardcover: 336 pages
- By Kamala Harris
One of America’s most inspiring political leaders, Kamala Harris brings us a book about the core truths that unite us, the long struggle to discern what those truths are and how best to act upon them.
Senator Kamala Harris' commitment to speaking truth is informed by her upbringing. She was raised in Oakland, California, the daughter of immigrants who met as activists in the civil rights movement when they were graduate students at Berkeley. Growing up in a community that valued social equity, Harris herself never hid her passion for justice. She became a prosecutor out of law school, a deputy district attorney, and quickly established herself as one of the most innovative change agents in American law enforcement. She progressed rapidly to become the elected District Attorney for San Francisco, and then the chief law enforcement officer of the state of California. Senator Harris became known for bringing a voice to the voiceless.
In The Truths We Hold, Harris offers us a master class in problem solving, in crisis management, and leadership in challenging times. Through the arc of her own life, and into the great work of our day, she communicates a clear vision of shared struggle, shared purpose, and shared values.
