I don’t want to live in an America where billionaires who pay nothing in income taxes rocket out into space, but middle-class families are thrown out of their homes.

It’s a disgrace that the eviction moratorium is about to expire. Rent is due tomorrow. In case anyone forgot, we've been going through a deadly pandemic that caused an economic crisis. We can’t allow families to be thrown out on the street. Congress and the White House must act.

It's great that 20+ HBCUs are using relief funds to help wipe out student debt. They understand that this debt is crushing Black families. President Biden should #CancelStudentDebt  to deliver that same relief to tens of millions of struggling borrowers.

Sen Scott said: “Thanks to the insane tax-and-spending spree of President Joe Biden and Democrats in Washington, we are seeing six straight months of raging inflation.” We explain why that's misleading.

People become refugees not by choice, but forced by circumstances. Resettlement in another country is a life-saving option available for only the most vulnerable among them. More from @Refugees :

While we’re fortunate to have an eviction moratorium bridge in place in Washington state, a national eviction crisis would put an unprecedented strain on the entire country and upend countless lives—at a time when the Delta variant is surging.

We need to extend the eviction moratorium—it's a matter of public health as well as a looming economic crisis, and the GOP should be working with us to do it. As we seek legislative solutions, I urge the admin & state & local gov'ts to explore all options to keep people housed.

Went to BRICK FAIR with my 11 year old in Virginia today — some very cool and creative stuff here.
