It's #InternationalCreditUnionDay ! Did you know the 1st credit union in the U.S. was established in NH? CUs empower the communities they serve. From helping families afford their 1st home to supporting the growth of small biz, CUs are vital to the prosperity of NH communities.

Today, I met w @kpk71 , the 2020 NH Teacher of the Year. Kimberly teaches at Granite State High School, where she helps incarcerated Granite Staters earn their HS degree & get a second chance in life. I thank her for the difference she makes each day to her students.

From working to combat the climate crisis to supporting conservation programs, I'm committed to protecting NH's beautiful forests for generations to come. Climate provisions must be a core component of the Build Back Better Act.

COVID-19 cases are continuing to surge in Coos County and are overwhelming health care providers in the area. Vaccines are our best defense against COVID and its deadly variants – please sign up to get your vaccine ASAP to put an end to this crisis.

Military families sacrifice so much for our nation. The least we can do to repay their service is connect them w/ good-paying jobs & quality child care. Proud to support this bill that delivers on both fronts & helps service members find economic security.

The effects of climate change are all encompassing. Climate change poses a rapidly growing threat to both our national security & global stability. Ignoring climate change is not an option.

This is devastating - SCOTUS failed to protect Texas women & their bodies once again by allowing this abortion ban to stand. The egregious assault on women & their Constitutional rights in TX and across the nation must end.

From supporting the critical work local nonprofits do to help the most vulnerable in our society to helping small biz keep their doors open, funding from the #AmericanRescuePlan  I supported will make a big difference in Cheshire County.

Today’s the day. We can all help combat the substance use disorder crisis by disposing of unused prescription drugs. Check out your nearest drop-off site – more info here. #TakeBackDay 

Grateful to have my daughter Stacey & grandson Reese w/me to kick off the @JamesFoleyFund Freedom Run. I appreciate runners in Rochester coming together to honor James Foley’s life and legacy. I’ll keep demanding justice for American hostages & fighting for journalists’ safety.

I want to know where the outrage was when, year after year, I and others in the Senate tried to get more SIVs to protect our Afghan allies, or when the Trump administration was giving away the rights of Afghan women and girls during peace talks with the Taliban.

The United States must stand strongly with the people of Hong Kong and make sure there are consequences for Chinese leadership’s attempts to trample civil liberties. We must continue to lead the free world. Democracy and free expression must triumph over oppression.

Donald Trump is unfit for office. I believed that last year when I voted for impeachment and I believe it now.

China’s military provocations against our allies and partners in the Asia-Pacific amid a global crisis are concerning. @marcorubio  and I are calling on @EsperDoD  to maintain our military’s readiness in the Pacific & ensure the U.S. stands ready to fulfill its defense commitments.

Don't believe the dangerous false narrative about the Global Gag Rule: U.S. taxpayer dollars do not fund abortions. The lie stating otherwise is used to restrict women’s access to lifesaving care in our most vulnerable places around the world. It has to end. And so does the GGR.

It's worse than that. It's a waste of taxpayer $$$ and drives up the cost of prescription drugs. My bill would prohibit these companies from claiming tax deductions on these ads.

Pres Trump is sending in fed officers w/o ID to indiscriminately detain individuals in Portland in violation of their rights. There's no excuse for this unwarranted use of fed law enforcement in American cities. I’m supporting @SenJeffMerkley’s amendment to put a stop to it.
