President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are expected to travel to Philadelphia, Penn., on Wednesday to launch a black voter outreach program as the presidential election draws near.

The initiative will be titled "Black Voters for Biden-Harris," according to CBS News.

"Today, Team Biden-Harris is launching Black Voters for Biden Harris, a national organizing program to bolster our continued historic investments in outreach to the backbone of the Biden-Harris coalition – Black voters," a spokesperson for the Biden campaign said, NBC Philadelphia reported

“These voters were instrumental in electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in 2020, paving the way for the Biden-Harris Administration to deliver a record low Black unemployment rate, Black wealth increased by 60%, more Black Americans with health care coverage than ever before, and billions forgiven in student loan debt that disproportionately impacts Black borrowers," the statement continued. 

Biden is expected to arrive in Philadelphia just before 1 p.m. and will be greeted by the city's mayor, Cherelle Parker. He is scheduled to speak at 1:30 p.m. 

The coalition is expected to work with groups in the black community and register them to vote as the 2024 presidential election is a few months away.
