House: Democrat Feed
Thank you to @SocorroISD leadership for stopping by my office!
We spoke about the critical issues facing our school districts, including teacher recruitment & retention, as well as funding for the IDEA legislation.
.@POTUS is getting sh*t done.
✅ lowest unemployment since the 1960s
✅ roads, bridges, airports, & clean energy
Today is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, a day to acknowledge progress in HIV prevention and care among Black Americans, while also recognizing the work still needed.
To #StopHIVTogether, we must address HIV stigma and barriers. #NBHAAD
On the day of the #StateOfTheUnionAddress, my @TheBlackCaucus colleagues and I are calling for an end to the police brutality that disproportionately devastates Black and brown communities.
We demand reform and accountability from those sworn to serve and protect.
No one should have to choose between caring for a loved one and their job. I was proud to author and pass the first law to guarantee family leave during my time in the Connecticut State Senate, paving the way for President Clinton to sign the Family & Medical Leave Act in 1993.
It’s despicable language like this that leads to attacks and threats against Jewish people.
@JoeRogan has a massive platform and it’s infuriating to watch him and @krystalball promote blatant, dangerous antisemitic tropes, including those masquerading as anti-Israel sentiments.
Families are still hurting from months of rising inflation, but there's good news — thanks to the steps taken by @POTUS and Democrats — inflation is finally easing.
What won't help families get back on track though? A 30% GOP sales tax.
Today marks one year since the last public appearance of Peng Shuai.
Peng courageously spoke out about the sexual abuse that she suffered from a top CCP official, and was disappeared and silenced for speaking out.
I continue to stand with Peng Shuai and demand answers.
As the representative for California’s 19th District, it’s my responsibility to serve you and assist with any federal issues you may have
Tomorrow, from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM, my staff will be holding office hours at the Almaden Valley Community Center to provide in-person service
Today, we raise awareness of the disproportionate impact the HIV & AIDS epidemic has had on the Black community. #NBHAAD During #BlackHistoryMonth, we are reminded that more can be done to improve Black communities' access to health services in order to improve & save lives.
My guest to @POTUS’ State of the Union is Ms. Samaria Rice, mother of Tamir Rice, who was murdered by Cleveland Police in 2014.
I pray that Ms. Rice's attendance at the SOTU will give her hope that we can address innocent deaths at the hands of those sworn to protect & serve us.
Michigan farmers work tirelessly every day to feed our families.
Our district is home to hundreds of small family farms. I recently spoke with sugar beet farmers about my work in Congress to promote fair trade and stop unfair practices by other countries that hurt our growers.
In 1837, Dr. James McCune Smith became the first Black American to earn a medical degree when he graduated from the University of Glasgow in Scotland. #BlackHistoryMonth
My #SOTU guest Jaqueline and I are joining @PattyMurray, @RepKClark and colleagues to call for bold investments in childcare ahead of the State of the Union.
Our child care crisis is hurting everyone—but I'm fighting for solutions.
I'm live with my guest to the #SOTU Angélica, members of Congress, and advocates to push ahead in this fight. https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1lPJqBREejwxb
President Biden is THE jobs President.
There are a lot of concerns over the energy use and pollution caused by cryptomining. @SenWarren and I urged the admin to use its authorities to make sure companies are being transparent about their emissions and exactly how much energy they use. https://www.theverge.com/2023/2/7/23588243/bitcoin-crypto-miners-energy-emissions-data-epa-doe-democrats
Diana Ordaz Quezada, a Passenger Service Assistant at Midway Intl. Airport and proud @SEIULocal1 member is my guest tonight at #SOTU. She helps travelers have a good experience and fights for the dignity and compensation airport workers deserve for their essential labor.
ICYMI: Today we are hosting hosting mobile casework hours in Dinuba at the Alta District Historical Society on Tuesday, February 7, from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM.

My heart breaks for the @MilwaukeePolice officer killed in the line of duty last night, and my prayers are with his family & the department.
Unfettered access to guns make our streets more dangerous for everyone, especially for the police. Americans deserve to go home at night.
