Michelle and I sat down with some terrific young people from @KidsPress  to talk about We The People, our latest @netflix  series through Higher Ground. We're hoping these songs teach the next generation about how our government works and what it means to be an active citizen.

Congratulations to my friend, President@JoeBiden ! This is your time.

I wrote out some thoughts on how to make this moment a real turning point to bring about real change––and pulled together some resources to help young activists sustain the momentum by channeling their energy into concrete action.

Here’s my statement on today’s violence at the Capitol.
