(CNN)Vice President Kamala Harris said on Wednesday that all American citizens should have the unequivocal right to vote during a high-profile meeting with nearly two dozen Democratic Texas state legislators who succeeded in killing a Republican election overhaul bill last month.

Senior administration officials say she will work to build coalitions of Americans concerned about the right to vote, educate Americans on the perils of state legislatures passing more restrictive voting laws and collaborate with Congress.

Harris is using her convening power to "bring Americans, concerned about the right and the ability to vote, voting rights activists and organizations at the state, local, national levels as well as policymakers, community leaders and the private sector together in favor in support and advocacy of voting rights," the official said.

Senior administration officials would not detail whether the vice president has reached out to Manchin since she took over the Biden administration's efforts on voting rights at the beginning of June.

A senior administration official said Harris' Friday trip to Atlanta as a part of a vaccine push will also feature an event focused on voting rights.
