Black babies make up only 14% of the infant population, yet make up 30% of all infant deaths. That is unacceptable. We must address the systemic and implicit racism present in maternal care for black mothers, as well as other mothers of color.

“You weren’t born a person of cringe and contraction. You were born as energy, as life, made of the same stuff as stars, blossoms, breezes. You learned contraction to survive.” ~

Trump: Avoiding taxes is a "sport" that the wealthy and corporations play. It's just smart. Also Trump: Those on Medicaid and Social Security should work for their benefits. They're draining the system! Once again, socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor.

A "caravan" of Americans with diabetes recently crossed into Canada in order to buy their insulin. The same amount of insulin that costs $700 in Minnesota is just $65 across the border. We must allow the government to negotiate lower prices.

Our democracy is being tested. We have an Attorney General protecting the President instead of pursuing justice for the American people. That needs to change.

We can't function as a nation of law if we can't trust the Attorney General to tell the truth. Reporting of Mueller's letter to Barr protesting the contextualization of the Russian investigation is a bombshell. The AG's job is to serve the public not protect the president.

For too long, we’ve had budgets that provide security for a wealthy & powerful few rather than the poor & disenfranchised many. Real security means establishing peace, justice, & promoting the material wellbeing of all, including future generations.

What would be truly heroic is if Disney used its profits from Avengers to pay all of its workers a middle class wage, instead of paying its CEO Bob Iger $65.6 million – over 1,400 times as much as the average worker at Disney makes.

Yet again a place of worship is the target of senseless gun violence and hate. Anti-Semitism is real in this country and we must not be silent - enough is enough. My heart aches for the Chabad of Poway synagogue and the Jewish community.
