Going live on @MSNBC  with @AymanM  at ~10:30 am ET today to talk about coronavirus, anti-Asian xenophobia, and what else Congress needs to do to help our country get through this. Join me!

The #wagegap  cannot be explained away. It persists across industry and occupation, regardless of experience or education and has devastating effects of women's ability to care for themselves and their families. #EqualPayDay 

The next 10 years in our country will be determined by the results of the next few months. We must make sure everyone is counted. Over $1 trillion of federal aid is at stake! And you can do it safely from home. Go online to to be counted! #CensusDay 

Do you have questions about what resources are available for your family or small business? Want to know about the checks that are coming your way? I set up a page to help. Visit for information and resources.

You can't go to school, a restaurant, or church because of coronavirus social distancing, but gun stores are still open. Even during a pandemic, Donald Trump will find a way to value profits for the gun industry over people's lives.

If you want to help us prepare for a future pandemic, there's a simple action you can take today: go to and ! It's not just abo #BeCountedt  Congressional seats. We need to know who lives where so we can get aid where it's needed. #Census2020 

More than 6 million people filed for unemployment last week alone. If you're one of them, it's not your fault and there is help for you. I've set up a resource page at with information on how & where to apply for benefits.

10 million Americans are filing for unemployment in just the last month alone. And millions are frustrated by the process. I understand. That's why I set up a resource page at to help you navigate applying for UI and more.


"If you want water, just drink from a toilet." That's what border patrol told one thirsty woman we met on today's #DemsAtTheBorder  trip. These are the same CBP personnel who threatened to throw burritos at members of Congress. Changes must be made. #DontLookAway 

I'm noticing that it's mostly white men who are so quick to tell us that "Chinese virus" isn't a racist term. Maybe because they're not on the receiving end of the violence and prejudice it incites.

"Obamacare has been repealed...I told people specifically to be quiet...I didn't want them to talk about it." - President Trump, bragging that he tried to hide an Obamacare repeal in the #GOPTaxScam . Cruel. Cowardly. Trump.

The America I know would send doctors, not soldiers.

After much thought, I have decided to #StandWithJohnLewis  and not attend the inauguration.

Another woman detained by CBP has epilepsy but cannot even get the medication she needs. The humanitarian crisis is the one our government is creating. #DemsAtTheBorder 

These are the lawyers who are volunteering their time to help those who are detained. #courageous  #NoBanNoWall
