From a bridge in Selma to the floor of the U.S. House, John Lewis has never stopped marching in order to make our country a more equitable, just, and perfect union. Happy birthday to a true American hero.
Our country must be defined not by our smallness, our fears, or our paranoia but by our personal stories, the courage of our convictions, and the big, bold, ambitious things we want to achieve together.
Listened to Democrats, Republicans, and independents at UW-Madison tonight. Made me really hopeful for the future even as we talked about some really tough issues -- climate change, health care, money in politics, racism, immigration, and unifying a divided country.
Monday night was a celebration of what makes El Paso so special. The fact that this community is one of the safest cities in America, not in spite of but because we're a city of immigrants. https://t.co/R7wFUI7b8N
Big thanks to the Border Network for Human Rights, @WomensMarchEP, @LasAmericasIAC, @ElPasoDemocr@AHouseElPasoat@vgescobars, , , the talented musicians, and the more than 50 groups who helped us organize as we shared the truth about the border and celebrated our binational community.
We just want to say thank you to everyone who made this possible. Everyone who made us feel hopeful, everyone who inspired us. Everyone who became the most amazing campaign we could have ever hoped to belong to. Grateful that we got to do this with you. We love you. Goodnight!
