Long lines to vote shouldn’t be normalized in America. Our democratic process should be easily accessible for all.

For the people in the back: tax cuts for the wealthy, deregulation, and corporate bailouts don’t trickle down to the working class.

Given the OAS’s role in the human rights crisis in Bolivia, they too must be transparent and fair in any conclusions.

I am deeply disturbed by reports that the Añez Administration has arrested election observers and attacked diplomats. Free and fair elections are the bedrock of democracy and tomorrow’s election in Bolivia must be free of interference.

Hunger is not a choice.   No child chooses to skip a meal.   Child hunger exists because our political system allows the rich to profit while letting children go hungry.

8 million people have fallen into poverty because federal aid dried up. For months, Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans chose to do Trump’s bidding and let millions suffer instead of passing another COVID relief bill. Do your damn job .

Police brutality is a global problem. I stand in solidarity with the protesters in Nigeria’s campaign. The Nigerian government must allow peaceful assembly and free expression, and should not be satisfied by simply renaming the old police. True reform is needed.

Make no mistake: This president doesn’t want to help those struggling. The House passed a $2.2 trillion stimulus package this month—Trump did nothing. People in Minnesota and across the country don’t need political games, they need real relief.

Today would have been George Floyd’s 47th birthday. He should be celebrating with friends and family. Instead, he was murdered by the hands of Minneapolis police. We must dismantle the systems of oppression that exist in our society and build a just America.

The latest SCOTUS decision to cut off the Census count early will have far-reaching consequences for the next decade. This decision will hurt vulnerable communities and deprive millions of federal resources. Fight back by filling out your census now:

7 months in, this President still has no plan to address this crisis at the scale needed, including testing and tracing. Mr. President, get your act together and sign the HEROES Act into law so we can get people the help they need NOW.

We need relief now. Not in February. Not in December. The thousands of people dealing with joblessness, hunger, and housing insecurity in my district can’t wait.

We shouldn’t turn our backs on those fleeing political persecution. ICE must be held accountable for their treatment of Cameroonian migrants and asylum seekers.
