LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to return to Los Angeles Friday to discuss Biden administration efforts to bolster maternal health.

According to her office, Harris will visit the nonprofit Baby2Baby, which provides baby supplies to low-income mothers locally and nationally, and also offers information on available government support resources.

Harris is expected to meet with a group of mothers during the visit, and discuss an administration partnership with the nonprofit to provide newborn supply kits to needy families in selected states, and details on programs supporting maternal and infant health.

It was unclear how long Harris will remain in the area, although she lives in Brentwood and often spends time at home while in Los Angeles.

Harris was in Los Angeles in mid-April, when she spent five days in the area. During that visit, she toured the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator and discussed efforts to build a "clean energy economy." She also spoke outside Los Angeles City Hall following a march for reproductive rights.

She had been scheduled to make an appearance at Cal State Dominguez Hills on Thursday for a town hall meeting marking Mental Health Action Day. The Los Angeles Times reported that Harris pulled out of the event in a show of solidarity with striking Writers Guild of America members.
