I applaud @PresElect Biden for his leadership in confronting America's gun-violence epidemic with seriousness & resolve. The actions taken today reflect the Biden Administration’s serious commitment to protecting Americans from gun violence.

I was glad to tour Greenbelt’s mass vaccination site with @adalsobrooks  today and see its operations first-hand as we ramp up equitable vaccination efforts and get more vaccines in the arms of Prince Georgians. 

@GreaterBaden  has been providing residents with access to affordable, quality health care for years, & now that it was selected for @PresElectBiden ' COVID-19 vaccination program, it will provide vital assi #MD05tance  to as we work aggressively to defeat COVID-19.

I commend @CDCgov  for declaring racism a serious threat to public health and for making a commitment to address this concern. This is an important move that will help begin to address racial disparities and improve outcomes for Black and Brown communities.

Glad to speak with #MD05  education leaders today to discuss how the #AmericanRescuePlan  is helping schools around the state meet the needs of students.

The House passed #ERA  and #VAWA  to stand up for women’s equality and provide survivors of domestic violence with important resources. Democrats will continue to work to enshrine women’s equality in our Constitution once and for all.

House Democrats have consistently stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the people of Hong Kong, who are now threatened by China’s proposed a national security law to undercut democracy and freedom of expression in Hong Kong.

While rioters shamefully destroyed this tribute to my brother John Lewis yesterday, let his words continue to echo in the halls of Congress and in our hearts. Let us always stand up, speak up, and speak out against injustice and for our democracy.

I urge to as Chair o #RemoveNunes  the House Intel Cmte. Altering a classified memo after the Cmte’s vote is dishonest, violates House Rules, & demonstrates the lengths he is willing to go undermine the rule of law in order to protect POTUS.

The Ugandan government continues to use state security in a partisan manner to harass & intimidate its citizens, press, & political opposition. Mr. Museveni’s tactics towards those who advocate for an inclusive democracy is dangerous & must be addressed by the global community.

The House will vote on Friday on @PresEl  #AmericanRescuePlanctBiden ’ to end this pandemic and deliver urgently needed relief to America’s families and small businesses. The American people strongly support this bill, and we are moving swiftly to see it enacted into law.
