The DoD takes effect today. A huge setback that shakes the faith our troops have in the country it serves. H.Res. 124 was a 1st step. We will continue fight against this bigotry and ignorance.

Great conversation with local members of Washington State Building Trades Unions visiting DC about the importance of job training and apprenticeships. I continue to fight for the right to organize and collectively bargain for higher wages, better benefits and safer workplaces.

I was proud to vote to reauthorize & strengthen lifesaving protections for women. With this vote, Congress is prioritizing protections & resources for victims of sexual assault, domestic abuse & stalking – responding to our country’s crisis of domestic violence with action.

Any U.S. involvement in Yemen must be debated transparently, and Congress will continue to assert its oversight role of the administration on Yemen. Thank you for your continued leadership.

Unnecessary shootings like this are far too common in our country and disproportionally effect communities of color. It is unacceptable that police officers decided to shoot first before assessing the medical condition of Mr. McCoy.
