On June 19, 1865——the Emancipation Proclamation was fully enforced and the last remaining slaves were freed. Today, we celebrate African American freedom with a re-commitment to heal the wounds of our nation's past and ensure a more equal future for all.

Thousands of migrant children are being held in government custody and the Trump administration has implemented policies that keep them in facilities for longer than needed, vulnerable to potential mistreatment. Congress must hold them accountable. Read my letter:

Too many reports have surfaced of migrant children being abused—in some instances dying—in detention facilities. It’s reprehensible. I'm urging Congress to restrict funding to tent cities & shelters that don't meet minimum standards of care for children.

The SANS Historic District thrived as a safe haven and retreat for African American families during segregation, a time when they were discriminated against and excluded from so many other places. This community holds important historic value that must be protected.

In a majority opinion delivered by Justice Ginsburg, the Supreme Court dismissed an effort by Republican legislators to protect racially gerrymandered districts in Virginia. We need to restore the integrity of our elections—this ruling is a great step forward.

Jon is expressing the outrage of the entire 9/11 community—cops, firefighters, EMS workers, and others. These heroes shouldn’t have to keep coming to DC while sick and dying to ask for compassion yet again, . Waiting until “the last minute” isn’t compassion.

Many of our communities are in desperate need of repairs and upgrades to water pipes, sewer systems, and other critical water infrastructure. I introduced the PIPE Act with to give them more resources to make necessary improvements & help ensure clean drinking water.

Assigning the chain of command with military justice authority in sexual assault cases can lead to conflicts of interest, bias, and negligence. It's obvious: We should put prosecution in the hands of actual military prosecutors trained to deal with these issues.

The military has a sexual assault problem. For decades, they have pledged to solve it. But it’s painfully clear that they have failed at this mission. The numbers speak for themselves. We need comprehensive reform.

Last night, the Navy Vietnam Veterans Act passed the Senate and is now headed to the president's desk! I'm thrilled and proud to have led this fight. These vets have waited far too long for the benefits they've earned and deserve—President Trump should sign it ASAP.

The Pentagon has spent decades promising to fix the scourge of sexual assault in the military, but they're failing—and there are no more excuses. I'm re-introducing the Military Justice Improvement Act to reform our military justice system and protect service members.

Yesterday should be the last time 9/11 first responders have to return to Washington. took an important step in passing the 9/11 VCF bill. When it passes the full House, should put it on the floor for an up or down vote without delay.

It was a pleasure to meet with New Yorker and activist to learn about her incredible work organizing to fight climate change. We need bold action and ideas to face this urgent threat—glad we have the voices of young people leading in this space.

Closely monitoring the news of the helicopter crash in midtown Manhattan. I'm grateful to the brave FDNY firefighters and first responders for quickly getting the fire under control, and will be following up with the NTSB and FAA about an investigation.
