Proudly serving the people of California's 43rd District in Congress. Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee (@FSCDems).
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.
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.
I am a strong black woman. I cannot be intimidated, and I'm not going anywhere. #BlackWomenAtWork
