INDIANAPOLIS — Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Indianapolis on Monday.

The United States' first-ever female vice president is expected to visit the Indiana Statehouse on the day that state lawmakers reconvene to discuss abortion and inflation legislation.

Indiana is the first state in the country to hold a special legislative session following the overturn of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court.

Harris plans to speak with state lawmakers and leaders about protecting reproductive rights.

A pro-abortion rights rally is expected to take place on the same day at the statehouse. The rally was organized by groups such as ACLU of Indiana and Planned Parenthood.

It was not made clear if Harris plans to attend the rally.

IMPD has confirmed they are preparing for the vice president's arrival.

This is a developing story.
