Pressed to explain white privilege in a struggling Ohio town, Gillibrand turned to the clearest illustration: arrests.

The hate coming out of this White House is sickening, but it's a symptom—not the disease. We have to understand and dismantle institutional racism that holds whole communities back. And that burden can't be on people of color alone to bear.

Abortion is already inaccessible for many. Overturning Roe would only put more people at risk and out of reach of health care, which is exactly what Republicans are planning for.

My faith is important to me. It's why I’m in public service. And I can't stand by and watch President Trump and Republicans use it as a shield for their hateful, inhumane treatment of vulnerable people.

I never compromise on my progressive values, yet I still get things done. And I think that's exactly what we need in our next president.

50 yrs ago today, we put a man on the moon. When President Kennedy made that our goal, he didn't know if it was possible. He just knew we should try. The Green New Deal is our moonshot. Let this be a reminder that when we're brave, we rise to the occasion—and we win. 📸:

No one thought I could win my first House race except my mother. My opponent never took me seriously. When I got to Congress, people tried to tell me the fights I wanted to take on were impossible. I've done this before. And I can do it again.

Mark your calendar for Wednesday, July 31! I can't wait for the second debate, but I still need 130,000 donors to make sure I'm on the stage for the third and fourth. Can you chip in to help secure my spot?

I went on the Trump Broken Promises tour to do two things: Highlight the broken promises Trump made to working families, and prove that Democrats don't have to choose between firing up our base and winning back voters we lost. We can—and must—do both.

We just found out: I can't wait to take the debate stage on Wednesday, July 31! I'll be at that podium because of grassroots supporters—but my spot for the fall could be in jeopardy. If you value my voice in these debates, help send me to the next round:

When you speak, I listen. I take notes. And then I do something about it. That's how public service is supposed to work. In this democracy, your voice should be just as important as the Koch brothers'. In my administration, it will be.

Puerto Ricans not only have the right to protest against bigotry and corruption—they are right to hold their leaders accountable. I stand with the people of Puerto Rico as they fight to rebuild the island.

Private equity firms strip down companies, walk away with millions, and leave communities hurting—and they've done it all with impunity. No more. I'm proud to co-sponsor 's Stop Wall Street Looting bill. It's time for working families to come before Wall Street greed.
