We honor your memory with action, dear brother #GeorgeFloyd  . No more lives should be lost due to police violence. #SayHisName  #ICantBreathe  5/5

Unsafe drinking water is a hazard to #PublicHealth , which is why the #CLEANfuture  Act invests in our water infrastructure by: ✅Removing lead service lines at no cost for homeowners ✅Replacing lines with American-made iron & steel ✅Creating new, good-paying jobs here at home.

Every #MemorialDay , we honor and commemorate the lives and legacy of fallen U.S. service members. Today, join us in recognizing the fearless men and women of the U.S. military who have sacrificed their lives to defend our nation. We salute you.

Let this month be a beacon for the celebration of diversity; the preservation of legacy; and the proliferation of unity. 3/3

So from Jamaica to Barbados and everyone in-between 'Bless Up'

Let's be clear: Any infrastructure proposal — worth our consideration — must prioritize climate. The two are inseparable, full stop. We need bold solutions like the #THRIVEAct  that understand climate change is indeed a crisis! Well said @SecretaryPete , #NoClimateNoDeal .

On this first day of #BlackHistoryMonth , I would like to take a moment to recognize a Black woman whose life and legacy have left a profound impact on my own life. #ShirleyChisolm , whose seat I now have the honor of holding, was a political trailblazer. [1/3]

This is domestic terrorism. Period, full stop. We are in throngs of a coup because @realDonaldTrump  refuses to respect the will of the American people. The eyes of the world are on us right now. Democracy will prevail.

Full stop— We can’t prevent algorithmic bias in innovative tech if POC don’t have a seat at the table. @RonWyden  and I urged @Google  CEO @sundarpichai  to reaffirm his commitment to D&I and academic freedom. Now more than ever, @timnitGebru ’s departure makes this work essential.

We have lost another giant. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Dinkins family as we remember the Mayor’s great legacy in New York.

Unbought and unbossed (her famous catch phrase), #ShirleyChisholm  leaves behind a rich legacy, and inspires me every day to work tirelessly as an advocate for our community. Today, and every day, we celebrate the queen, Shirley Chisholm. #BlackHistoryMonth  [3/3]
