When I worked in a trauma center, sometimes we’d have young patients. The thing about young people is they have no choice but to rely on adults for advice and guidance. In a hospital, that trust is a matter of life or death. Kids are not immune to COVID-19. Listen to science.
"Being this was my third child, normally when, you know, you deliver your baby, they set your baby up on your chest... and... they didn't." This video is hard to watch but we all need to know the abuses happening to pregnant women in prisons and jails across this country.
$75 billion for testing, tracing, and treatment has been sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk for 102 days.
It's been 93 days since Breonna Taylor was murdered and the only arrest made in relation to her death was the arrest of her partner, who was charged for defending himself against the intruders invading their home.
Last week, I spoke to a grandmother (in a cage) who the government had deemed "ineligible" to stay with her grandchild because she was not his mother. The boy was shipped off to foster care and in 6 months, can be put up for adoption in Texas. That’s what “ineligible” means.

This is a video of the President laughing at the idea of shooting immigrants to stop them from coming into the US. If one person is harmed as a result of this speech, EVERY SINGLE PERSON who failed to condemn it is complicit. Blood will be on your hands.
Racists tweet racist things. What we should be focused on right now though, ESPECIALLY today, is that racists also create and enforce racist policies. They’re trying to deport people across Los Angeles as I type this. Stay focused. Know your rights.
