This is not a game. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are being punished over a useless and costly wall. When will their next paycheck come? A week? A month? No one should live with that uncertainty. Let’s vote to reopen the government and end this shutdown.

The last time the federal minimum wage was increased was 2009. It’s been almost ten years since working Americans were given the raise they deserve. I joined my colleagues this week to re-introduce the Raise the Wage Act, which would raise the minimum wage to $15 by 2024.

"Seeing that our students are being short-changed and that they're not getting the education that they deserve really was a rallying point for teachers to...take to the streets and to express that to make their voices heard." Standing with teachers in the .

No one should ever have to sit in jail because they can’t afford to get out. This news from Harris County is a promising local move to reform our broken bail system across the country.

Medicare for All shouldn’t be considered a radical idea. Everyone deserves health care, no matter how much money is in your pocket or where you live.

If we are lucky enough to be in a position of power, if our voice and our actions can mobilize change, don’t we have a special obligation to do so? Being an ally can’t be just about nodding when someone says something we agree with — it must also be about action.

We’re now 27 days into the longest government shutdown in our nation’s history. 800,000 Americans are going without pay. Congress is a coequal branch of government, . We don’t need a permission slip before we can vote on a bill. Let’s vote to reopen the government.

Climate change is one of the most pressing threats to our children and it’s outrageous that a former coal lobbyist is being considered to head the EPA. I will be voting NO on Andrew Wheeler’s nomination.

This is horrific and downright cruel. Not only were thousands more innocent children ripped away from their families, but separations began months before the policy was announced. Secretary Nielsen should resign immediately.

There are 42,300 federal workers in CA currently affected by the government shutdown. They’re the TSA agents who protect our flights and air traffic controllers who help land our planes. They’re park rangers and Coast Guard members. They don’t need a wall — they need a paycheck.
