Vice President Kamala Harris will soon visit Highland Park, the Illinois city where at least seven people were killed in a mass shooting at a July Fourth parade, according to the press pool traveling with her Tuesday.

Harris will be accompanied by Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering, US Rep. Brad Schneider and state Sen. Julie Morrison. The exact timing of her visit was not immediately clear.

During a call Tuesday morning, Rotering invited the vice president to join her in Highland Park following Harris’ speech to the National Education Association.

Harris delivered remarks in Chicago, just miles from Highland Park, and pointedly told Congress to “have the courage” to act on an assault weapons ban and to “stop protecting” gun manufacturers.
