My father was a letter carrier. Saving the U.S. Postal Service isn't just about their customers, it's about their employees too.

How many of these kids live with their grandparents? How many will die because of an unwillingness to address this pandemic?

"Trump has been a catalyst for activism like I haven't seen in a really long time. He has inspired activists all down the line. Now it's our job to make sure that that gets sustained."  @Karen Bass on  #HowWeWin2020 https://swingleft.org/podcast/5

“It is what it is.” - Donald Trump

The census is a necessary & crucial tool for democracy. We should be strengthening & evolving the census, not cutting it short. . @Stacey Abrams &  @Karen Bass explain what’s at stake in the  #2020Census & why it we must get a  #faircount.  @Fair Count https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/08/03/karen-bass-stacey-abrams-trump-census/#click=http...

If you didn’t do something yesterday to help  @Joe Biden get elected, make sure you do two things today.

Every 10 years, the census count is used to allocate federal funds and to reallocate political power through reapportionment and redistricting. At stake is the annual distribution of $1.5 trillion for everything from schools to health care to the roads and bridges we drive on.

This is how Donald Trump refers to a civil rights icon.

But he wishes accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell well. 

This is what we’re up against.

At this inflection point, we must commit to the virtue of seeing our people as they are so that we can continue to grapple with the policy implications with purpose, fairness and facts. To do anything less would be committing malfeasance against democracy itself.

The  #2020Census, like the USPS, is being manipulated by the Trump administration to undermine Americans - esp. people of color.  @Karen Bass & I lay out what’s at stake and why you should care.  @Fair Count http://my2020census.gov https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/08/03/karen-bass-stacey-abrams-trump-census/#click=http...

Trump is resurrecting the census’s horrific history,  @Congressmember Bass and  @Stacey Abrams write https://wapo.st/3i2kQLA

People shouldn’t have to risk their lives in order to vote.

Just so you all know, I proudly worship at First New Christian Fellowship Baptist Church in South LA.

Do something today that helps  @Joe Biden become the next president of the United States.

Thousands of Americans are dead right now because we don’t have proper leadership in this country.

Thank you  @Karen Bass for raising the death of Elijah McClain in police custody during the  #BarrHearing. Barr claims he's "not familiar" with the case. We don't buy it.  #ElijahMcClain  #BillBarrIsCorrupt https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/elijah-mcclains-death-is-an-unspeakable-outrage/2020/06/28/2...

Bill Barr: Are you the Attorney General for the United States or are you the Attorney General for Donald Trump?

Good morning. We are 100 days away from ending this nightmare we’ve found ourselves in over the past 3 years. Advocate for  @Joe Biden. Organize for  @Joe Biden. Vote for  @Joe Biden. Our lives depend on it.

How is it not safe enough for the Republican Convention but safe enough for our kids to go to school?

George Floyd was murdered two months ago today. Chokeholds still aren't banned nationwide. How much longer must the American people wait for the Senate to hear their cries and ACT?

If your vote didn’t count, they wouldn’t try so hard to suppress it.

144,000 Americans did not need to die in this pandemic.

People have been questioning what does defund the police mean. Tonight @soledadobrien sat down with congresswoman @ayannapressley, @repkarenbass and Retired Chief J. Scott Thomas to talk about what defunded could look like.

Senator Kamala Harris has spent her entire life fighting for the people. I would never want to be labeled the “anti-Kamala Harris.” We’re fortunate to have had her as Attorney General and now as Senator. She would be an excellent VP and the same goes for anyone else on the list.

We should have a president that believes in science.
