Live stream of our press conference about the epidemic of police brutality plaguing our community—>

This morning we called for the firing of a #NYPD  officer for his unnecessarily violence toward a peaceful protestor this weekend causing her seizures, a concussion. We cannot let any bad apples remain in the NYPD. Because this kind of violence escalates to murder. #EnoughIsEnough

Doctors. Nurses. Bus Drivers. Cashiers. Mothers. Fathers. Siblings. Grandparents. Aunts. Uncles. Cousins. Friends. Neighbors. Colleagues. These are the over 100,000 lives lost. They will never be forgotten. #DayOfMourning 

I’ll be joining @cheddar  live at 2:20 this afternoon to talk about the epidemic of police brutality affecting our city and nation.

It is our right to protest. It is not #NYPD ’s right to use unnecessary violence. Deescalation training needs to be more than just lip service by these officers. Watch more about what I have to say in this @cheddar  interview.

I’ve been raising my voice for better health care for Black communities even before this pandemic, and I am glad my efforts are helping bring 2 new #covid  testing centers THIS WEEK to #NY09  (Flatbush & Crown Heights) as a part of @NYGovCuomo  partnership w @ACPNY  to expand access.

8M renters were struggling to pay rent before #COVID19 . Congress should enact the housing provisions in #HEROESAct  to create a uniform eviction moratorium, protect people experiencing homelessness & provide #RentReliefNow .

When someone tells you who they are, believe them. The Bigot-in-Chief promised American Carnage and here he is delivering his dystopian dream. Abhorrent.

His name is George Floyd. He was murdered by Minneapolis Police. Being Black is not a crime. Being Black doesn’t excuse lethal force by police. These officers must be held accountable and charged with murder. Rest In Power Brother George👊🏾 #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd

I will NOT attend the inauguration of @realDonaldTrump . When you insult @repjohnlewis , you insult America.

My face knowing that the avg. American man could vacation for 6 mo & earn the same as the avg. BW who works all year #BlackWomensEqualPay 

Republicans control… -the White House -the House of Representatives -the Senate They own this. #TrumpShutdown 

Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt for ignoring a court order in a racial profiling case. Today, 45 pardoned him w/o DOJ support.
