We simply cannot wait any longer. We need to ensure renters have the protection they need against eviction and homelessness during the pandemic. That's why I'm proud to cosponsor 's bill to do just that – because it is the right thing to do.

25 million people don’t know how they’ll pay rent next month. Mitch McConnell and President Trump, stop ignoring the country you're supposed to lead. Help families stay in their homes, now AND after the pandemic.

You shouldn't have to choose between paying rent or feeding your child—especially in a pandemic. Mitch McConnell needs to stop standing in the way of passing a strong, bipartisan relief bill to help the hundreds of thousands of Alabamians on the edge.

Important, eye-opening read on the disparities in Black and white homeownership. 🏠 We cannot achieve racial justice without addressing the housing inequality and discrimination that hurt communities of color.

The editorial board agrees - Judy Shelton is NOT fit for the Fed. "Trump may want a Fed board that responds to his needs, but the rest of us need a central bank that tunes out the political noise and focuses on its mission."

Where others went to college or what they majored in shouldn’t determine whether you can get a loan - or how much you have to pay for it. We know this can lead to discrimination - educational redlining. But that's what some lenders are reportedly doing.

It's outrageous to use this pandemic as cover to sneak in favors for big banks - but that’s exactly what Fed Vice Chair Quarles is trying to do. The next relief package should help workers and their families, not Wall Street.

When credit decisions are made based on which college the applicant attended, it can hurt Black and Brown borrowers. It’s more important than ever for the to have a dedicated office to root out this type of racial discrimination.

In the middle of a pandemic, CFPB Director Kathy Kraninger—who is supposed be a consumer watchdog—rolled back protections against predatory payday lenders. The Trump Admin’s $7 billion giveaway to payday lenders will hit workers when they are already struggling.

The President is openly endorsing segregation. And somehow he thinks so little of the American people, he assumes everyone is as racist and elitist as he is.

WATCH: Director Kraninger thinks it's a "success" that the hasn't returned a SINGLE dollar to consumers who were discriminated against by credit card companies, auto lenders, & mortgage lenders during her tenure. Her predecessor returned over $500 million to consumers.

Conservative and liberal economists alike recognize the threat of Judy Shelton being on the Fed. The administration should withdraw her nomination immediately.

Judy Shelton is trying to back away from these long-held views now. It's just more proof of what I told her six months ago: she is unable to make economic judgments independent from political calculations.

Fed Nominee Judy Shelton’s radical views are well-documented: ✅ Supports returning to a gold standard that would destabilize our economy ❌ Opposes deposit insurance that protects families’ checking & savings accounts during crises
