Thank you for lifting this up at today's hearing! The stories of Black Americans fleeing slavery in search of greater freedom in DC is an important part of the conversation in our fight for statehood. We can't compound this injustice with inaction—we demand now!

DC was the 1st territory in the United States to free the enslaved. It’s where Black Americans fled the tyranny of slavery & towards greater freedom, to DC. Yet today it’s where 2nd class citizenship reigns, and the right to vote is denied. It’s time to recognize DC statehood.

“The changes are faster,” Koko said. “The worms are eating the wild rice up before it’s ready to pick. Lots of changes in the forest, too many to keep up with. Not enough are listening. Maybe they’ve forgotten how.” Indigenous wisdom ✊🏽

Re-upping this from : "Small, incremental policy solutions are not enough... There is no justice & there is no combatting climate change without addressing what has happened to indigenous communities. There is no fixing our economy without addressing the racial wealth gap."

There will always be powerful interest in promoting the idea that the left is losing power 1 way or another. The big way they try to dismantle the left isn’t to attack it, but to gaslight & deflate it. Dripping condescension that I’m being “educated” should be a big red flag 🙄

This is straight barbarism. GM workers are asking for a raise during a time of record profits. In response, GM execs cut off their health insurance. Yet another reason we insist on : so your healthcare won’t be held hostage to negotiate lower wages.

Short thread: Very good to see today, helping young climate activists. He sat down with the youngest member of Congress, , and they hammered out what may be the most progressive domestic legislation since the 1930s, the Green New Deal. That's how it should work

In America, people aren’t paid a living wage, healthcare isn’t guaranteed, and educating yourself to skill up will likely put you thousands of dollars in debt. Tip. If you want to change that, tip and join the progressive movement. See you in the streets. ✌🏽💸

"Please save your praise, we don’t want it. Don’t invite us here to tell us how inspiring we are without doing anything about it. It doesn’t lead to anything." Today I and other young activists visited US Congress... Tomorrow we return to give speeches.

Republicans only seem to believe in “states rights” when it comes to denying people freedom and advancing their personal agenda.

This is a real quote from a Democrat representing a safe blue seat. Aggressive statements like these are so casually thrown from corporate candidates towards grassroots ones, yet they never get branded as “divisive,” despite their rhetoric. We should ask ourselves why that is.
