Harris will appear as part of the show's Generation Change presentation, which recognizes young people's strength and courage to create a better world for future generations. Actress Jennifer Garner will introduce the vice president.

"Vice President Kamala Harris is a pioneer and role model for us all, but especially for today's kids, who can find inspiration in the story of her path forward and the barriers she has broke from childhood to today," ViacomCBS' Marva Smalls said.
