New York has the best manufacturing tradition in the country. Now, we need to do everything we can to keep that tradition up. So I’m glad that our push for more funding for New York’s manufacturing communities has passed the Senate.

My bipartisan bill, the Made in America Manufacturing Communities Act, that would give communities all over New York access to funding to rebuild their manufacturing sectors, passed the full Senate last night! We’re now one step closer to getting these funds to our state. ⚙️

is the day we commemorate the abolition of slavery in our country. While we’ve made great strides toward equality, we must also recognize the fights still ahead. Today, let’s renew our resolve to work toward a more equal and just future for all.

The Department of Homeland Security is tearing young children away from their parents. It is abhorrent. It is immoral. And the administration could stop this today. But since they won’t, Congress needs to step up.

Every Democratic senator is co-sponsoring the Keep Families Together Act, but not one Republican has signed on. Call your senators and tell those who are with us to keep fighting and those who aren’t that you need them to take on this injustice. Raise your voice again and again.

Cages. The government is tearing young children away from their parents, putting them in cages, sending them to tent cities. This is beyond horrific. Please, make your outrage known today.

We can pass the Keep Families Together Act to stop the humanitarian crisis at our border, but only if you’re so loud your representatives have no choice but to do what’s right. Call Congress – and keep calling, marching and telling everyone you know to do the same.

Susan B. Anthony’s bravery reminds us of the impact a single voice can have, and to raise our own as loudly as possible in the continued fight for equality today.

Xiu Qing You was simply seeking to adjust his immigration status so that he could continue providing for his family. ICE arrested and detained him. Now, he faces deportation and separation from his wife and kids. This abject cruelty must stop.

A breastfeeding mother at a detention center had her daughter ripped away. Border agents tell parents they’re taking their children for a bath – but they don’t come back. There’s a humanitarian crisis at our border, and we have to fight it.

But Trump won Arizona by four points, and Republicans are spending big to win this seat. So we have to make sure Kyrsten has the critical resources she needs to win and beat Joe Arpaio. Please donate now to defend our values and flip this red seat blue:

Public service is at the center of everything Kyrsten does. She overcame childhood homelessness to earn a full scholarship to college and run for the House, where she’s fought to create better opportunities for others. That’s the kind of determination we need in the Senate.

We need to do everything we can to get my friend to the Senate because she’s fighting in Arizona for women, for families and for progress. Her GOP extremist opponent Joe Arpaio? We know he’ll only fight for misogyny, racism and bigotry.

DACA was announced on this day in 2012, laying a foundation for Dreamers to build a future in the country they call home. But President Trump has put that chance in jeopardy. Let’s continue to fight for these young people to get a path to citizenship.

"They’re passed over for promotions and raises. They’re fired when they complain." Worth reading. The stories from these working mothers are deeply infuriating.

Most of us in NY know someone who has been affected by Lyme disease. But President Trump refuses to address this epidemic, so we need to speak out. Will you call on Congress to fund research to stop this disease?

The Trump administration is separating children from families escaping violence and extreme poverty at our border. We must do everything we can to stop this. That means calling your representatives, joining marches and protests, and telling everyone you know to join this fight.
