I've just returned my mail-in ballot for tomorrow’s primary election in NJ. Your ballot must be postmarked by July 7th or you can use one of the designated drop boxes in your county. You can find a drop box in your county here:

I hope you and your loved ones have a safe and healthy holiday weekend. 4th of July this year should be a time for reflection—about how we can overcome our challenges and truly strengthen our American values of freedom and justice for all. Happy Independence Day.

Donald Trump's refusal to take this pandemic seriously will go down as one of the biggest failures of leadership in our nation's history. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/01/politics/donald-trump-coronavirus/index.html

It was just a few weeks ago that we were experiencing the worst of this pandemic here in New Jersey. Fortunately, we've been able to flatten the curve. But it's going to take a continued effort from all of us to keep infections and hospitalizations down. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/new-jersey-hit-hard-coronavirus-sees-positive-signs-n1232435

If you have any questions about next week's NJ primary, here's where you can find answers. Be sure to return your mail-in ballot as soon as possible! It needs to be postmarked by Tuesday, July 7th. https://www.nj.com/politics/2020/07/njs-vote-by-mail-pandemic-primary-election-is-happening-now-here...

I strongly recommend my friend's book. Already high on the NYTimes best seller list. Eddie Glaude is a friend, a deeply wise advisor and a moral visionary for a more beloved nation.

Today my new book is available. I look forward to hearing what you think...

Black voters, on average, wait 45 percent longer to vote than white voters; Latino voters wait 46 percent longer. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/06/voter-suppression-novembers-looming-election-cr...

Trump & McConnell know that if they end Obamacare & you get COVID, you won’t ever get insurance, because you'll have a pre-existing condition. This is some evil ?%#$! We better vote like our lives depend on it, because they do.

This was one of those moments in our history when the power of the people prevailed. Change doesn't come from Washington, it comes to Washington.

Pres. LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act on 7/2/64, with MLK Jr. and other civil rights leaders in attendance. It outlawed discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, while enforcing desegregation and equal access to public places and work

It is disgraceful how little this president values the heroic Americans who bravely choose to serve. He sold them out when he chose self preservation over credible intelligence. Never again can he claim he supports our troops. https://www.npr.org/2020/07/01/885909588/trump-calls-bounty-report-a-hoax-despite-administration-s-b...

It's not a power grab, it's justice. D.C. has been deprived of representation in our federal government for so long. The residents of the District deserve to have their voices heard. Now is the time for  #DCStatehood.

Senate Republicans fiercely oppose DC statehood as a political "power grab"

Let's talk about the racial wealth gap &  @Sen. Cory Booker's "Baby Bonds" bill, first introduced in 2018. The median White family has 10x the wealth of the median Black family & 8x that of a Latino family. The racial wealth gap is robbing communities of color of opportunity. (THREAD)

I'm honored to receive the endorsement of @AFSCME NJ Council 63 ahead of next week's primary. I stand proudly with these dedicated public employees in our state and am thankful for their support.

We are very much so still in the midst of a global pandemic. Please keep wearing a mask and continue to practice social distancing. It will save lives.

There's a cheap, elegant, easy-to-administer, and race-neutral policy out there that would close 70-80 percent of the racial wealth gap. It's time to seriously start talking baby bonds: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/06/close-racial-wealth-gap-baby-bonds/613525/

Tonight,  @John Hickenlooper officially became the Democratic nominee in Colorado's must-win Senate race. I've known John since back when we were both mayors. He's an innovator, a consensus-builder, and a leader who gets things done. Help send him to the Senate: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/jwh-soc?refcode=booker

Yes! Please let us talk more about baby bonds. This is how we can close the staggering racial wealth gap that persists in our country. We must make baby bonds a reality for every American child.

A must watch from one of our nation's greatest justice organizations:

Now is the time to join the fight for racial equality, confront our nation's history of racial bigotry and begin the era of truth and justice.

I believe this is a must read article for those who aspire to a more beloved country and who admire or even ascribe to a philosophy of nonviolence. Thank you  @Ezra Klein https://www.vox.com/2020/6/17/21279950/nonviolence-king-gandhi-protesters-rioters-george-floyd

Mississippi's decision to remove the Confederate emblem from their flag is an important and overdue step. Next we should remove Confederate statues from the halls of our nation's Capitol. These symbols of white supremacist hate and terror need to go. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/tasneemnashrulla/mississippi-bill-remove-confederate-symbol-sta...

The only thing we lack in this country is the political will to do what is right. Powerful video on school segregation from the folks at ⁦ @RaceNYU⁩ ⁦ @Deborah Archer⁩ ⁦ @Dennis D. Parker⁩ ⁦ @Anurima Bhargava⁩ ⁦ @Teens Take Chargehttps://youtu.be/iDNoD3NK58s

This is just awesome! https://defeatbytweet.org

Decades after Roe v. Wade, abortion access is still under attack. While there's hope to be found in today's ruling, access to basic health services is still out of reach for millions of women. We need to elect leaders who will defend, protect, and expand reproductive health care.

Biden's strength/Trump's weakness across the Sunbelt is not only an ominous sign for Republicans in 2020, but for years to come.

One pandemic + two candidates with vastly different approaches +
three months campaigning under COVID = a widening polling gap.

Let @jheil run the numbers:

Today, we remember Stonewall and the powerful uprisings—led by trans women of color—that transformed our country. The struggle for LGBTQ+ equality continues today and we must all be willing partners in this fight.  #PrideMonth
