Don’t listen to anyone downplaying the seriousness of this pandemic. Listen to scientists, medical professionals, and public health experts. What they’re telling us is simple: Wear your mask and continue following social distancing guidelines to stay healthy and safe.

Coronavirus isn’t just exposing the racial disparities in our health care system—it’s making them worse. Any meaningful response to this pandemic must address this harmful reality head-on. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/07/05/us/coronavirus-latinos-african-americans-cdc-data.html

We’ve mourned too many Black people killed at the hands of the police. As we keep Philando Castile’s loved ones close to our hearts today, we must also commit to ending police brutality and the systemic racism that pervades our criminal justice system at every level.

This is an epidemic within a pandemic—and we need to tackle the opioid crisis like the public health emergency it is. Congress should pass my CARE Act to give $100 billion directly to first responders and communities on the front lines of this crisis. https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/07/01/coronavirus-drug-overdose/

End qualified immunity now. Grateful to have  @Ed Markey  @Elizabeth Warren &  @Bernie Sanders partnership on the Senate side in this fight for true accountability. https://www.businessinsider.com/senate-democrats-introduce-bill-to-end-qualified-immunity-for-police...

No one should have to choose between collecting a paycheck and protecting their health. These companies have failed to keep their employees safe from COVID-19. I support  @The Culinary Union and Bartenders Union Local 165 in their fight to hold them accountable. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-nevada-lawsuit/unions-sue-three-nevada-casino-...

The American people need an Attorney General they can trust—someone whose loyalty is to the Constitution, not the president. William Barr must resign. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/06/how-far-bill-barr-has-fallen/613582/

My hope is that we all take this Fourth of July to reflect on our history and commit to the work that needs to be done so Black Americans and people of color can live free of oppression. White supremacy has shaped so much of our story—but we can write a new chapter together.

Voting is the heartbeat of our democracy. This weekend, take action to protect your right to vote safely. https://elizabethwarren.com/democracy

This moment is about ending police brutality. But it’s also about ending systemic racism and dismantling white supremacy in every aspect of our economy and society—from the legacy of redlining to the Black maternal mortality crisis to the murders of Black trans women.

I stand with  @SEIU Local 121RN and the nurses who are sounding the alarm during this pandemic, speaking out about understaffed hospitals and unsafe working conditions.  We need to get essential workers the rights and protections they need—now. https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/national/nurses-in-riverside-calif-are-on-strike-alleging-unsaf...

The American people have a right to know whether the president of the United States is defending the lives of American troops or not. And our service members have a right to a Commander in Chief who will always have their backs.

If you’re out and about this weekend, I hope you’ll wear a mask. It protects you and everyone you love—it’s that simple!

Tomorrow I’ll be handing over my Instagram account to @RaquelWillis_. She’s dedicated her life to fighting for LGBTQ+ equality and racial justice, and I can’t wait to hear more from her. 

I hope you’ll tune in!

“You believe black lives matter? So legislate like it. Invest like it.” See Congresswoman @AyannaPressley discuss her personal feelings in this moment of reckoning, how her revelation of alopecia has affected her and more

"We are in tumultuous times. Native, Black and Hispanic communities have the highest rates of coronavirus per capita... We are in the same struggle to lift up our communities and demand the health care, education, and equity that all our children deserve." https://www.abqjournal.com/1470657/in-troubled-times-we-can-celebrate-cultures-of-nm.html

The Trump administration either doesn't have the slightest comprehension of the scope of the COVID-19 crisis—or they’re deliberately attempting to mislead the public. Either way, the record-breaking surge in cases shows the extent to which their failures will cost American lives.

The pandemic isn't over, but rent is due. Domestic workers like Jessica don't know if this crisis will force them into homelessness. The Senate needs to pass the #HEROESAct now to avoid deepening this crisis for millions:

Donald Trump is going out of his way to defend Confederate traitors who killed American soldiers 200 years ago in the name of white supremacy—but refuses to defend the American soldiers that Russia tried to have killed. Donald Trump is a failed Commander-In-Chief.

Arrest Brett Hankinson, Johnathan Mattingly, and Myles Cosgrove for the murder of #BreonnaTaylor. #SayHerName

Dial 844-298-2731 to demand city leadership get #JusticeforBre.

Assisted living facilities face a COVID-19 crisis. But unlike nursing homes, their cases often go unreported because they’re not subject to the same oversight.  @Ed Markey and I are introducing legislation to require strict data collection and reporting. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/covid-19-killed-7000-assisted-living-congressional-report/story?id=7...

We're in an unprecedented economic crisis and renters everywhere need protection. We need to pass Senator  @Elizabeth Warren's bill and implement a nationwide eviction moratorium. https://www.vox.com/2020/6/29/21306066/eviction-moratorium-senate-bill-elizabeth-warren-chuy-garcia

“Crisis” isn’t a buzzword—it’s a directive. This is an emergency, and if the Trump administration doesn't get its act together, more Americans will die.

JUST IN: @VaughnHillyard reports on new coronavirus data in Arizona, including a 28.3% testing positivity rate over the past day.

“Nearly 1 out of 3 individuals who were tested for COVID in the last 24 hours, their test came back positive. That is a stunning number.”

Was Trump really not briefed about Russians putting a bounty on the heads of American soldiers? Or did he know, but did nothing? What is the White House trying to hide?

I don’t know the answers, but I promise you this—I’ll keep asking until we get some.

Qualified immunity upholds systemic racism. It perpetuates the rampant abuses of power in law enforcement. Too often, it lets officers escape accountability when they violate constitutional rights—and denies justice to victims of violence and discrimination. It needs to go.

I’m proud of my home state for taking this fight to the ballot box and winning—and glad for the 200,000 more Oklahomans who will soon have health care. https://oklahoman.com/article/5665790/oklahoma-voters-approve-medicaid-expansion-at-the-ballot

In the middle of an economic crisis, the Trump administration is trying to unravel the progress that was made to stabilize the mortgage market after the last recession. Adam Levitin and Susan Wachter remind us here and in their new book what's at stake.
