Had a great discussion with local leaders & advocates @Seattle_Housing’s Epstein Opportunity Center today about the innovative work happening in Seattle to bring together school districts, housing authorities, & social service organizations to tackle child & family homelessness.
Tens of thousands of Americans with disabilities being denied loan discharges they need and are eligible for is unacceptable. The Department of Education can & should solve this problem—and I will continue to hold them accountable until they do.
The Trump-Pence Administration's harmful #TitleX gag rule is putting health care out of reach for women and families across the country—all because politicians think their ideological views are more important. We must keep fighting to #ProtectX .
We must put a check on President Trump’s abuse of executive power—plain & simple. I introduced legislation to return the stolen money the President took from the military for his border wall & create safeguards to ensure no president can do this in the future.
Reauthorizing #VAWA tells survivors of domestic violence that we're with them, we support them, and we will help them gain their independence and seek justice.
Today, 52 Senate Republicans went on the record against affordable health care and protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Today, 52 Senate Republicans voted against patients and families. Don't forget.

This is about Roe. This is about health care. This is about our environment. This is about our democracy & the rights & freedoms of millions of people in WA & across the nation… It’s all on the line. Raise your voice. #StopKavanaugh .
