.@MayorFrey is joining @mayorsforagi to secure an income floor that provides dignity and agency to recipients. The American people deserve a social safety net that includes a #guaranteedincome to meet the challenges of today. pic.twitter.com/EGJQqPMTJa

The fact is we’ve seen a surge in gun violence across the country since the beginning of the pandemic. It’s unacceptable — and we’ve got to take action to combat it. That’s why we’re announcing a comprehensive approach to prevent and respond to gun crime and ensure public safety.

The excesses of the 1st Gilded Age ended with the progressive era — political reforms, taxes on the wealthy, protections of worker health and consumer safety, and antitrust to break up monopolies.
How will the excesses of the 2nd Gilded Age end?

Workers that have unions have better wages, better benefits, better safety conditions in the workplace. The #PROAct is the most significant pro-worker legislation since 1935 that will put power back in the hands of workers. Let’s get it passed – NOW. pic.twitter.com/sFaEiezIW8

“Even with clear public health implications, the safety of tear gas products sold in the U.S. appears to be largely left to the discretion of the manufacturers – a shocking gap in regulation given the hazardous nature of the chemicals.” – @AOC & @CoriBushhttps://t.co/d7xnMw0ynT
