We all looked to Shuwanza's leadership when she served as Floor Director. She was integral to helping us pass legislation to provide vital COVID relief to the American people, protect the integrity of our elections, and raise the minimum wage. So well deserved, congratulations!

Today I voted to advance the National Apprenticeship Act of 2020 – a proposal to create 1 million apprenticeship opportunities to help Americans get back to work Registered apprenticeships give workers a pathway to the middle class. This is critical to rebuilding our workforce.

It's unreal that is wasting precious time confirming more Trump judges while Americans suffer from a growing threat. The House passed additional relief months ago, & the Senate needs to make this priority #1. Congress works for Americans, not the President.

Great news from the Senate! My bipartisan Internet of Thing Cybersecurity Improvement Act (HR1668) was unanimously approved by the Senate and only needs signature to become law.

Carrying out federal executions during a deadly pandemic puts hundreds of people at risk from local community members to Bureau of Prison employees to lawyers and advocates. As my dear friend Elijah Cummings said, we as United States citizens, are better than this.

BREAKING: Senate GOP just confirmed Stephen Vaden, who has a record of defending voter suppression efforts. Vaden is the fourth Trump judge (now serving FOR LIFE) confirmed since yesterday – with two more expected this week. We need COVID relief, not this.

The peaceful transition of power has been the bedrock of our system of government since its founding. Every move to undermine that transition cuts against the character of our country.

Black communities continue to bear the brunt of a global pandemic, economic recession, and racial inequities. Now more than ever, our communities deserve champions for our causes at all levels of government, including in the highest office of the land.

This appointment is a clear recognition of both the critical role played in the Biden Campaign as national co-chair, as well as the significance of Black voters in delivering a decisive victory for Joe Biden.

It’s time to talk about the harrowing experience of being pregnant during COVID-19, and how to make it better - because neither this pandemic nor the maternal health crisis are going away.

other governmental resources for their transition team is tearing at the edges of democracy and the Constitution. The Administrator needs to release the funding immediately and stop acting illegally. Enough is enough! 2/2

The General Services Administration is broken. It is one of the most inefficient agencies in the United States Government. And the destructive behavior of the General Services Administrator to not allow the President-elect and the Vice President-elect to access funding and 1/2

Today , , , & I are calling on AG Barr to suspend all federal executions so the incoming Biden-Harris Admin. can evaluate—and hopefully end—the use of the federal death penalty. It is discriminatory, immoral & ineffective. Read our letter here:

The "Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping" is actually a thing. A state department of health notified me today that they put a project with my organization on hold bc this administration doesn't allow federal funds to be used for anti-racism trainings.

My father, Lieutenant Colonel Garvin Tutt, sacrificed to serve his country despite the discrimination and racism he faced at home and in the military. I work to honor his legacy and ensure that our service members and veterans are able to live with dignity and security.
