It's been six years since the death of Freddie Gray. Six years and still so many young men of color are killed by police. Six years of saying "Maybe this time, things will change." But this past week has once again shown we have a long way to go in the fight for justice.

I fought for more than twenty years to finally pass legislation to make the @latinomuseum  a reality. Now you can be a part of it too, knowing that your artwork will soon be hanging in a museum on the National Mall. Check out to submit your artwork!

📢 Reminder 📢 As of today, EVERYONE over the age of 16 who lives, works or studies in NJ is eligible to get a vaccine. We’re in the homestretch of getting out of this pandemic, as long as we all do our part. Please get your vaccine as soon as possible!

Once again, the #AmericanRescuePlan  continues to deliver for New Jersey families. This time, it's nearly $700 million to help New Jersey's child care providers reopen or stay open safely, and to help make child care more affordable for more families.

My sincerest condolences to Vice President Mondale’s family as they mourn his passing. Our country owes him a debt of gratitude for his love of country and years of service to the United States.

NJans spoke loud and clear last year when they voted to legalize recreational marijuana, but legal cannabis businesses can’t get insurance to protect their employees, customers and property like other legal businesses.

My CLAIM Act would put legal marijuana-related businesses on a fair footing and allow this industry to flourish.

It's been a long time since America's 60 million Latinos could have their voices heard in the Oval Office. Great meeting with @PresEle @SenKamala @HispanicCaucusarrisctBiden , and my colleagues today. Hopefully the first of many.

Yesterday we announced that hundreds of Bloomfield homes will have their lead water pipes replaced free of charge thanks to the #AmericanRescuePlan . But that was just a down payment. Now it's time to pass @SenDuckworth 's #DWWIA  to make clean water a reality in every ZIP Code.

22 years after #Columbine , the NRA is weakened and the movement behind commonsense gun safety measures is stronger than ever. Still, my Republican colleagues continue to stand in the way. What is it going to take for them to join us in making our nation and communities safe?

Just read the FBI report on Kavanaugh - if that’s an investigation, it’s a bullshit investigation.

Congress received notification that POTUS officially withdrew the U.S. from the @WHO  in the midst of a pandemic. To call Trump’s response to COVID chaotic & incoherent doesn't do it justice. This won't protect American lives or interests—it leaves Americans sick & America alone.

Okay this is absurd. One page of the new #GOPTaxPlan  is crossed out with an ex. Another page is just a line. Is that a crossout? Is this page part of the bill? WHY AM I ASKING THESE QUESTIONS HOURS BEFORE WE VOTE ON IT?? #GOPTaxScam 

It's been half a year since #HongKong  citizens took to the streets in the millions to protest the erosion of democracy and their rights. Violence against students and protestors is rising—some of the worst seen in the city in decades.

That feeling when you own the President of the United States and can do whatever you want.

“You’ll have to ask Russia,” is a pretty incredible response from a Senior@StateDept  official about the Trump Administration’s views on #Russia ’s nuclear capabilities. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee needs answers so we can make informed policy decisions.

Congress did its job, Mr. President. We are proudly standing with the people of #HongKong , freedom and democracy. The question is: Will you?
