Last year, we saw the biggest shock to our economy in decades—and poverty still went down.
Why? Because the federal government helped people get through it. We should keep showing the people that we have their back by passing the Build Back Better bill.https://t.co/yR412Rm4Tc

The right of women to make decisions about their own bodies is non-negotiable—and the law in Texas is unconscionable.

California: do not mess with this recall.
We need folks to TURN IN THEIR BALLOTS. Vote NO and drop it in the mail tomorrow.
Don’t sleep on this. It takes 5 mins but it’s urgent. We have so much work to do already and a nightmare fuel recall election is the last thing we need. https://t.co/XouDdNbltI

I’m back in New Orleans as of last night and I’m also feeling very fortunate that my home was untouched, and has electricity, water, and internet. It also feels very weird to feel like things are so normal when I know things remain far from normal for many of those around me. https://t.co/Zqf0V5joYG
