California Attorney General Kamala Harris spoke on May 18th at a fundraiser benefiting the Junior State of America (JSA) Scholarship Fund on Los Angeles. Ms. Harris is widely regarded as a rising political star, and this was her first meeting with JSA. The event, which had over 80 students, parents, alumni, and teachers, was held at the Brentwood home of a Junior Statesmen Foundation board member.

The event format was a moderated discussion led by Professor Dan Schnur, Director of the Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California and a member of the JSA Board of Trustees. In a wide-ranging discussion, students asked Attorney General Harris about her views on current issues such as immigration, same-sex marriage, and the death penalty. "I really appreciated Attorney General Harris's enthusiasm and honesty. She answered difficult questions both frankly and openly, which is quite rare among politicians," said Southern California JSA Governor Sabrina Lieberman.
