According to news reports, the meeting marked 32 years since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed. The discussion was scheduled to essentially discuss the overturning of Roe v. Wade and how it will affect disabled people.

Harris said at the meeting, “I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her, and I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit.” the 57-year-old wore a powder blue blazer suit, left her hair loose and accessorized with a classic pearl necklace. She also had a black mask on her.

Shortly after this introduction, other members at the table also introduced themselves with their ethnicities, pronouns and clothes. “My pronouns are she / her de ella, I’m a White woman with long brown hair, I’m wearing a red dress, and I’m wearing a see-through mask so you can see my red lips,” someone said .

Another added, “I’m a Latina with blond highlighted hair, and I’m wearing a gray blazer over a black-shade dress.”

The unique start to the meeting was widely discussed on social media, with netizens throwing in their opinions on Twitter. While some found it laughable, others defended and even applauded this method of introduction.

Harris’ objective, it has been reported, was purportedly that of using her pronouns to be inclusive of trans and non-binary people around the world and especially in the US, with a visual description of her attire as a way to explain it to blind and visually-impaired people.
