Let’s keep this conversation going. Restoring the voting rights of 5.2 million Americans is key to building a democracy that represents everyone. We need to begin our work with those who have the least. That includes protecting the rights of people who are incarcerated. https://t.co/u74ClefYB8

Here is the state of the Democratic Party today: a whopping 119 DEMOCRATS just voted AGAINST restoring voting rights to people in prison. Congress Member @CoriBush heroically tried to add this provision to HR 1. Her own party failed her. We still have so much to teach Democrats. https://t.co/71TYUnTfEb

For the first time ever, the House took a vote on whether or not to end the cruelty of denying incarcerated people their right to vote. Our amendment didn’t pass, but 97 Democrats voted with us. We will not stop fighting until we dismantle white supremacy in all of its forms.

UPDATE: Vote is around 12 PM ET. We need all hands on deck! Voting is a right, not a privilege. My and @MondaireJones' amendment would restore voting rights to people who are currently incarcerated. Tell your representative to support Amendment 84 to H.R. 1: (202) 224-3121 https://t.co/bcMfNHf0VK

The movement fighting for Black lives is about dismantling systems of exploitation and violence. More than 80% of workers at the Amazon plant are Black. Their incredible organizing is Black liberation in action. We're bringing that St. Louis solidarity to Alabama. https://t.co/mnIQaTFZSK

There are those who say they want unity and peace, but they don’t want justice and equity. That’s fake unity and false peace. “True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.” #MLK

It’s simple: the people were promised a $15 minimum wage, so we need to deliver AT LEAST a $15 minimum wage. https://t.co/UbUXIL8spJ

Just because Black History Month is over doesn’t mean we stop celebrating the Black history that is being made every day. Black excellence should be celebrated 24/7, 365 days a year.

Black and brown people have been hardest hit by this pandemic yet @GovParsonMO is refusing to provide adequate vaccine access to our communities. I requested MO’s vaccine equity plan weeks ago to make sure this wouldn’t happen. I’m still waiting for it. We need answers. Now. https://t.co/lgXGquGCMV

This fight is much bigger than a $15 minimum wage. We also need the Senate to deliver on voting rights, health care, racial justice, LGBTQ+ rights, climate justice, and so much more. It’s been 2 months, and we’ve already heard enough excuses. Abolish the filibuster.

People don’t care about keeping the filibuster. People don’t care about listening to the parliamentarian. People care about getting the relief they need. Do what it takes to raise the minimum wage to at least $15. https://t.co/HHnvpYEqHE

If your work in Congress isn’t to serve ALL your constituents, you have no place here. We’re coming off the worst year on record for transphobic violence. This is a human rights crisis. We’re passing the Equality Act because our LGBTQ+ communities need to be protected. Period.
