BREAKING: The Senate passed my bill with @SenatorTimScott to award Willie O'Ree the Congressional Gold Medal! Willie broke barriers for many as the first Black@NHL player & has given so much to communities across the country. It's an honor to lead this effort. #WillieForTheGold
From the hockey arena to serving young athletes in his community, Willie O’Ree’s legacy has inspired generations. I urge my colleagues in the House to pass the Willie O’Ree Congressional Gold Medal Act in recognition of NHL legend Willie O’Ree’s significant contributions.
The U.S. Senate just passed the Willie O’Ree Congressional Gold Medal Act! Willie is one step closer to the highest civilian honor that Congress can give. Now it’s up to the House of Representatives. Visit to help. #WillieForTheGold

"This is not new in the Republican Party ... This is the party of the Willie Horton ad. This is the party of Mitch McConnell posing in front of a Confederate flag. This is a party of birtherism ..." @nhannahjones on #TheReidOut
Happy 90th birthday to Willie Mays! If it wasn't for folks like Willie and Jackie Robinson, I might never have made it to the White House. The spirit he played with and the way he carried himself changed the game and people’s attitudes. I’m glad he’s still going strong.
