"I know racism when I see it. I know racism when I feel it ... Some of us have been victims of the stain, the pain and the hurt of racism ... Segregationists told us to go back!"

Donald Trump has decided he does not want to be President of the United States. He does not want to be a President to those who disagree. And he’d rather see most Americans leave than handle our nation’s enshrined tradition of dissent. But we don’t leave the things we love. 🇺🇸

Until Republican officials denounce yesterday’s explicitly racist statements (which should be easy!), we sadly have no choice but to assume they condone it. It is extremely disturbing that the *entire* GOP caucus is silent. Is this their agenda?

Thanks to so many people showing up to organize this week - joining Know Your Rights canvasses and sharing information on social media - we kept a LOT of families together this weekend in the midst of ICE raids. Proud of everyone who’s been stepping up to protect our neighbors.

Our entire economic framework was designed to maximize GDP. What if we prioritized health and dignity instead? A reimagined Earned Income Tax Credit, says , could be key to doing so by establishing a new standard of living.

THIS is what racism looks like. WE are what democracy looks like. And we’re not going anywhere. Except back to DC to fight for the families you marginalize and vilify everyday.

CEOs' paychecks are $5.2 million higher than they were a decade ago. Yet, the minimum wage still hasn't budged a cent. It's time for Congress to give millions of working people a raise. Corporations can clearly afford it.

Santa Monica's own Sam Querrey has now reached the Quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the 3rd time in 4 years! So impressive. Next up: Rafa Nadal. And yes, I am betting on to pull the upset.

This epitomizes so much of what is reprehensible about Trump: A single tweet that dictates a governing decision to completely disregard the rule of law, the integrity of democracy, and basic decency & dignity to all regardless of color or national origin.
