The future of our country relies on everyone raising their voice and casting their ballot in November. Register to vote now at http://iwillvote.com.

The speech Thurgood Marshall gave twenty-eight years ago still resonates to this day: “Democracy just cannot flourish amid fear. Liberty cannot bloom amid hate. Justice cannot take root amid rage. America must get to work.”

This Independence Day, I’m grateful for our brave service members and those who fight every day for our country’s values. Fueled by love and optimism in what we can be, I know we can create a more just and better nation for all.

We cannot overlook the toll this pandemic and existing racial disparities have had on our Black children—and how it could subsequently impact their future. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/29/parenting/coronavirus-black-children-inequality.html

We cannot allow giant gig corporations to exempt themselves from providing essential protections and benefits for their workers. I urge Californians to join me in standing with these essential workers by voting NO on Prop 22.

Trump attempted to muzzle public health experts. Repeatedly said coronavirus was "under control." Refused for a long time to wear a mask to ensure people took this threat seriously. At a time when Americans are depending on competent leadership, Trump has failed again and again.

No Black girl should ever grow up thinking she's less than because of her hair. This  #CROWNDay, let's embrace our natural hair and fight to pass the Crown Act to make it illegal to discriminate against hair texture and styles.

🚨We are absolutely thrilled to announce the support of @KamalaHarris! I've spent my entire life at the intersection of health & social justice, fighting #ForThePeople. Early voting starts Monday in #TX10, and we couldn't be more fired up to have Senator Harris in our corner!

Coronavirus doesn’t take holidays off. This weekend please wear a mask, maintain social distancing, and wash your hands. It can save your life, the lives of the people you love, and complete strangers.

Our Justice in Policing Act will: →Expand independent investigations into police misconduct →Establish a national police misconduct registry →Require states to report use of force incidents →Set a national standard for use of force →Ban no-knock warrants in drug cases

What’s happening in ICE detention facilities is utterly shameful. DHS must immediately prioritize the release of low-risk and vulnerable people.

1 in 1,500 Black Americans has died from coronavirus. This pandemic is further reinforcing historic inequities we’ve had in our nation long before we ever heard the word “coronavirus.” Confronting these disparities must be at the forefront.

My childhood hero and inspiration, Thurgood Marshall, was born on this day in 1908. Our nation is stronger because of his powerful voice for civil rights and social justice.

The United States just hit 50,000 new coronavirus cases in a day yesterday—and we were warned we could see 100,000 per day. Instead of taking meaningful action to reduce cases, Trump is waving the white flag.

It's time we had a commander in chief who took our national security seriously.

Black communities have historically been undercounted in the Census. We can’t let that happen again.  @MyBlackCounts is helping to ensure the funding we need for a brighter future, such as our public schools and college financial aid programs. Learn more at http://myblackcounts.org

This is absurd. No one in our country should have to jump through loopholes in order to get their coronavirus tests and treatment covered. It needs to be free. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/06/30/885053457/essential-worker-shoulders-1-840-debt...

Protecting our service members' safety should be our elected leaders' highest priority.

Tune in to  @Deadline White House on  @MSNBC at 4pm ET. I'll be on with  @Nicolle Wallace to discuss the latest reports regarding Russia and why we cannot settle for an inadequate middle ground when it comes to holding police accountable for misconduct.

Coronavirus has killed nearly 130,000 Americans. We were warned the U.S. could see 100,000 new cases a day. Yet there is still no adequate national testing strategy. It could not be more clear: Trump has surrendered to this virus and abandoned Americans.

Rent is due today and countless Americans don’t know how they’re going to make ends meet this month. A one-time payment wasn’t nearly enough. We can’t wait any longer to pass my bill to provide $2,000 every month throughout this pandemic.

After 109 days and no justice, I say Breonna Taylor’s name. I say the names of Sandra Bland, Atatiana Jefferson, Aiyana Jones, and the countless others who were killed by police or who died in police custody. We will continue to demand change in their honor.

When it comes to voting during the pandemic, it’s critical that any solutions we come up with protect Native Americans’ access to the ballot box. My VoteSafe Act would do just that.

The future of the Supreme Court is on the ballot in November.

45 million Americans lost their jobs. U.S. billionaires gained $584 billion. This pandemic is highlighting why income inequality is one of the most pressing issues of our time. https://abcnews.go.com/Business/extreme-inequality-preexisting-condition-covid-19-widened-americas/s...

This pandemic called for national leadership—and Trump failed. Tune in now to hear  @Joe Biden's response to this global crisis and how his administration would have taken action.  https://www.pscp.tv/w/ccoXyjFvUEVMQkJiT2xyS2R8MU9kSnJXa0xBd1B4WAxnrlhpHD-uPOzVgsBXBZyqLckiW9nhhXZ4Yq...
