On #YomHaShoah  and every day, learning about the horrors of the Holocaust, remembering the lives lost and rooting out anti-Semitism wherever we may see it is how we help ensure this dark chapter in world history never again repeats itself.

Today marks the 53rd anniversary of the landmark Fair Housing Act. Despite the last administration's best efforts to skirt this law and protect landlords over renters in the middle of a pandemic, now is the time to expand housing access and help secure housing justice for all.

Maile channeling me on my 4th zoom of the day and it wasn't even lunch yet.

To mark Black Maternal Health Week, it was a pleasure to join @SecBecerra  yesterday as he took action to ensure new moms in Illinois can keep their healthcare coverage on Medicaid up to a full year after they've given birth. No one should die from preventable causes.

Don't stop speaking out against AAPI hate. The ongoing bias and violence targeting our fellow Americans won't disappear overnight—it's up to us to turn our outrage into action and pass the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act.

Does @TuckerCarlson  want to walk a mile in my legs and then tell me whether or not I love America?

Instead of holding DeJoy accountable, the USPS Board of Governors confirmed what I always suspected was true: The 6 current members are all DeJoy loyalists. I'm re-upping my February request that @PresElectBiden  use his legal authority to remove the entire Board for cause.

A vote against the For The People Act is a vote against the rights of Black and Brown voters. Period. If made into law, it would expand: 👉Early voting 👉Automatic voter registration 👉Vote by mail And finally make Election Day a federal holiday. RT if you want it passed.

DeJoy is a clear and present danger to our postal service. He must be fired immediately.   Not tomorrow. Not next week. Now.
