Thanks, @PetalumaArgus  for this piece on my work during the #COVIDcrisis . This pandemic demands immediate action—and @HouseDemocrats  are pushing forward a coherent, unified strategy that the President has failed to provide so we can save jobs & lives.

Our @ClimateCrisis  Select Committee held a bipartisan briefing this week to explore the risks posed by extreme weather during the pandemic. We need strong plans in place so we can keep people safe when these crises inevitably overlap.

Over the past week, @HouseDemocrats  have been working hard to improve testing, get relief to Americans who need it, and uphold our oversight responsibilities. Check out my latest weekly recap to see some of the work I’m doing as your representative.

Telehealth is an invaluable tool for our rural areas, and especially necessary in a pandemic. I’ve been advocating with @RepTorresSmall  for smart investments in these services, and I’m happy to see grants from the FCC going to some of our #CA02  centers.

@senatemajldr  is saying Dem’s proposals are an aspirational wishlist. Our “aspiration” is just to help save American lives—both from the pandemic and an economic collapse. The Senate needs to get to work on the #HeroesAct .

Their heroism, courage, love, & loss will be remembered. This #MemorialDay , honor our servicemembers while you #StayAtHome  by joining the largest oral history project in the U.S. Record a veteran’s stories for the @librarycongress  #VeteransHistoryProject 

This fire is a huge setback for the local seafood and fishing industry, which has already been hit hard by the pandemic. I’m going to be fighting for a lot more relief to keep this vital part of our coastal communities afloat.

The @alzassociation  has been doing amazing work on the ground to fight for some of the most vulnerable members of society. I had the pleasure of joining them for a virtual town hall today to discuss the federal response to #COVID19  and how Congress can support their crucial work.

Health care should be everyone’s priority. Instead, the Trump admin launched attacks on @PPFA . The reality is these health centers are the only source of care for many people. Republicans need to work w/ Dems to increase health care access, not slash it.

They just can’t answer the question: why did the Trump admin promise that oil drilling in the #ANWR  would be 60x better for taxpayers than any previous oil lease in the area? The numbers don’t lie. Let’s #ProtectTheArctic .

Here’s the tweet, now deleted, from the US Arctic Research Commission earlier today #dontsilencescience

Thousands are dying. Millions have lost their jobs. The country is depending on us. Today, I voted #ForThePeople  to honor heroes and save lives by supporting testing, tracing and free treatment. #HeroesAct 

RETWEET if you agree that it's time we acted to protect the majestic orca! #Blackfish

Our country needs a National Day of Reason to provide an inclusive alternative for humanists, atheists, nonreligious, and freethinkers alike to celebrate reason in the public sphere and allow the secular community to inspire positive change

Moments ago, House Democrats offered a resolution to fund the remainder of the govt & gave Republicans the opportunity to avoid a #TrumpShutdown  - and not one of them voted yes. Let's be clear: voted to keep our govt open, voted to shut it down.

Because Trump is ignoring the consequences of his ridiculous #shutdown , & I are taking garbage we picked up at our national parks and delivering it to the White House. Our message is simple: , open the gov. Watch @ 445 EST at

EVACUATION WARNING has been placed for the following areas: City of Calistoga and Napa County North of Diamond Mountain Road to Dunaweal Lane. East of the Sonoma County/Napa County Line. South of the Lake County/Napa County Line. West of Pickett Road

I’m thrilled to be a co-founder of the new Congressional Freethought Caucus, which will help spark an open dialogue about science and reason-based policy solutions, and the importance of defending the secular character of our government
