Make no mistake: a vote for Judge Barrett is a vote to take away health care.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a direct threat to reproductive rights & health care for millions of Americans. I co-led a letter sending a clear message to Senate leadership: no confirmation until inauguration.

Black women must be protected & respected. This isn’t a controversial statement, it’s a fact. @theestallion  speaking truth to power.

Our state is experiencing the worst fires in its history due to climate change. Trump must answer to our communities & first responders for this appalling decision to withhold hundreds of millions of dollars in aid.

If you are poor, Black, Latinx, Asian American, Pacific Islander or Indigenous, you are at much greater risk during this pandemic. Democrats are committed to ensuring America’s response addresses that disparity – and it is time Republicans joined us in that fight.

Health insurance shouldn’t be tied to employment. Period.

Senator Graham, you should be ashamed. Your state had 164 recorded lynchings, and your words disrespect and belittle African Americans and lynching victims. This is absolutely unacceptable and disgraceful!

The tear-gassing of women and children at the border is an atrocity. It’s a violation of human rights. And it is a grotesque betrayal of our founding promise, as a nation built by immigrants. I’ve called for inspectors on the border, and I reiterate that call today.

. just passed a bill that will strip nutrition assistance from millions and take school lunches away from hundreds of thousands of school kids. Because after giving trillions in tax breaks for billionaires, has decided it’s too expensive to feed hungry kids.

#PhilandoCastile was shot in cold blood. The world watched it LIVE. What will it take for the justice system to value Black lives?

I was there and saw first-hand children in prison, sleeping on cement floors, crying for their parents. All while you’re insisting nothing is happening. Shame on you!

Ryan stripped my 01 AUMF repeal amdt from DOD Approps in the dead of night. This is underhanded & undemocratic. The people deserve a debate!

As a single mother who relied on food stamps to help feed my boys, I can’t overstate how offensive this proposal is. Low-income families need more access to fresh produce & healthy foods, not less.
