I remain shaken following the killings of the 20 innocent children at Sandy Hook in 2012. I'm still numbed by the fact the NRA owns too many Members of Congress who don't have the courage to tell the NRA to go straight to hell.

We've been telling the story about Black women getting paid 61 cents to the dollar for more years than I can remember. And I can simply use this day to further shout to the top of my voice that it is time to end the discrepancy and discrimination. Black women deserve equal pay.

We’re not just talking about homelessness. We’re working on solutions. My bill HR1856 will provide $13B to end homelessnsss in America & tmrw I'm convening a @FSCDems  hearing to hear from @MayorOfLA  & community leaders to continue these efforts. Tune in:

We can walk & chew gum at the same time. While we’re dealing with Trump we must also keep our eye on good public policy. I invite all Los Angelenos to come to the @FSCDems  hearing on homelessness tomorrow for a discussion on solutions to end homelessness.

Today I spoke with @diprimaradio  about the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles and the work I’m doing to combat this devastating issue including my bill to provide $13B to end homelessness and tomorrow’s @FSCDems  field hearing @CAAMinLA . Listen below:

The NRA is a right wing, corrupted, killer organization that does not care about the loss of somebody else's children and families. All they care about is money, power, & holding fear over the heads of this entire country. The NRA must be disbanded!

I'm not letting law enforcement & elected officials off the hook about the constant black on black killings in Chicago. The weapons that are being used must be banned. The police must do a better job, and the community must demand & strongly support the end to gang violence.


So Comey told Jeff Sessions he didn't want to be alone with Trump. Women across the country can relate.

I am a strong black woman. I cannot be intimidated, and I'm not going anywhere. #BlackWomenAtWork 

Mueller made clear Trump is NOT exonerated and that AG Barr is a liar. Mueller did his job now it's time for Congress to do its job. No more hiding behind the special counsel. Enough is enough. It's time to #ImpeachTrump . We can't wait for 2020. The time is NOW!

Lock him up, lock him up, lock him up, lock him up.

I received some criticism b/c I said Repubs supporting Trump -after his crimes & work w/ Russians - are unpatriotic. Yes I said it! How can you know the enemy Russia is undermining our democracy & say & do nothing? If you don't care, I do. We must impeach Putin's president Trump!
