Democratic Senate candidate Kamala Harris made another public appearance on Tuesday.

At her third event of the day — a late-morning forum with family members of fallen law enforcement officers at a VA Hospital — she avoided focusing on major talking points. Instead, she sought to underscore her roots in the nation’s largest African-American community and show that she was invested in helping local police officers make themselves more accessible to the African-American community.

“There is no more hurting community in the United States than the African-American community, and I want to be able to do everything in my power to support all African-American communities,” Ms. Harris said during the event.

At a second event in Boston later in the day, Ms. Harris also aimed to keep her focus on issues relating to police and the community.

“I’m here to support the men and women of the United States Department of Justice, who are literally in the battle against terrorism,” she said on Boston Public Radio. “As we should be — I just never understand when we are a nation of laws and the police and the citizens are not competing equally against one another.”

The lieutenant governor of Massachusetts, Karyn Polito, also endorsed her on Tuesday afternoon.

Ms. Harris will get a chance to reach out to new potential donors on Wednesday, when she is scheduled to appear at a fundraiser in San Francisco, where she can expect to raise tens of thousands of dollars, according to people with knowledge of the event.
