Congressman, Georgia's Fifth Congressional District
56 years ago today, we Marched on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Today we continue to fight for the progress we sought in 1963–livable wages, fair housing, equal education. We must continue to speak up & stand up, to find a way to get in the way to build the Beloved Community.
The American people have lost a great leader at a time of crisis in our democracy. Chairman Elijah Cummings gave all he had. He dedicated his entire life to serving the public good.
I believe in my heart of hearts that quality, affordable health care is a right. Health care should not depend on the size of your wallet or the digits in your zip code.
John Conyers was born at a time when we needed someone to stand up, to speak up, and speak out, and get in the way, or get in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble.
The right to vote is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful nonviolent tool or instrument we have in a democratic society. And we must use it. #goodtrouble

Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. #goodtrouble
I was beaten, left bloody and unconscious so that every American has the right to vote. Friends of mine gave their lives. Do your part. Vote
Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Do not become bitter or hostile. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. We will find a way to make a way out of no way. #goodtrouble
