Let’s send the powerful message that no Republican seat is safe from our renewed activism. No amount of dark money flooding into races can withstand our grassroots power. Send your support, even just $5, to help Hiral win this critical race:

I know we can turn this key district blue and elect Hiral to fight for families, health care and women’s rights – but the GOP’s wealthy donors are rushing to funnel money against her right now.

Regardless of race, religion, cultural identity or anything else, an injustice against one of us is an injustice against all of us. So together, let’s keep working together for a better, fairer, more just world.

The students who led today's school walkout and rally in NYC are some of the most impressive advocates I’ve seen in my career. Their voices are changing the conversation about gun violence in this country, right before our eyes. I was proud to join them.

We cannot let Republicans in Congress ignore these students, turn the page and wait for everyone to move on. We need to keep weapons of war off our streets – now. We need to enforce universal background checks. We need to protect students.

On April 20, 1999, 12 students and one teacher were murdered at Columbine High School. Today, 19 years later, thousands of students across the country will join together in school walkouts to demand the action we’re still waiting on.

With newborn daughter Maile Pearl in tow, arrives at the US Capitol for her first vote since giving birth (and her first vote since the Senate rules were changed to allow her to bring her baby on to the floor during votes):

Black and Latino people in NYC are arrested at TEN times the rate of white people for virtually the same rate of marijuana usage. Along with and , I’m cosponsoring a bill to legalize and decriminalize marijuana. Raise your voices and join us in this fight.

You can have both. The FAMILY Act would offer universal paid family leave without making you mortgage your Social Security.

What a beautiful, heart-wrenching letter from to his son. We owe it to both of them to carry on our fight to protect health care for every American. Hope to see you at the polls in November.

The Senate has no more excuses. We must pass these reforms before our next recess. Members of BOTH parties, men and women, agree that it’s time to act.

New York just opened up the ballot box for an upward of 35,000 people by restoring voting rights to parolees. Those who have paid their debts deserve a second chance and full voting rights—it’s the right thing for our democracy. I’m proud our state will help lead the way on this.

Deeply troubled by this report from Rome, NY. ICE officers should not be allowed to raid private property without a warrant. There must be an immediate investigation into what happened here.

The second largest blackout in world history, on U.S. soil. Our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico are facing a crisis, and Congress hasn’t done nearly enough to help them recover and rebuild after Hurricane Maria. We must act now.

This shouldn’t be a partisan issue. Our kids need healthy, nutritious, fresh food.

We should be recommitting to policies that root out racial discrimination, but the Senate just passed a bill that undermines the ability of the to protect against racial and ethnic discrimination in auto lending. A terrible idea for consumers.
