Some women lawmakers in Congress are working from home — while taking care of their kids. Their experiences are shaping the legislative response to child care issues during the coronavirus pandemic. @chueyburns reports: https://t.co/EnBAUy06eR https://t.co/rwIl3cIMr9

WATCH: I spoke with @SenDuckworth @HerreraBeutler @katieporteroc --all moms of young kids--about why childcare is such a critical issue in this pandemic, a main driver of getting people back to work. My story one of the effects of having more women in Washington: https://t.co/yTMIl3gZRt

I’m voting because 30 years after the ADA was signed into law, I shouldn’t have had to spend so many long days & even longer nights working to save it from being rolled back. We can stop playing defense & make America accessible to all—if we vote. https://t.co/LZJJV9dTS6

For months, protesters have made their voices heard to demand that #BlackLivesMatter. While violence shouldn't be the answer to violence and looting shouldn't be tolerated, these are symptoms of a greater problem—years of disinvestment & underinvestment in Black communities.

With tensions running high between law enforcement & the people they’ve sworn to protect, the shooting of a young Black man in Chicago last night is the exact opposite of the progress our nation has to make when it comes to racial justice. https://t.co/dAtXodbmh4

I agree with Commissioner @JRosenworcel—the FCC’s vote to help lower interstate phone rates is long overdue. The next step on the path to securing #PhoneJustice is passing my bipartisan Martha Wright-Reed Just and Reasonable Communications Act.

Every incarcerated American has a #right2connect with their loved ones.

Not only does this help reduce recidivism & save taxpayer money, ensuring #PhoneJustice would help families who didn’t do anything wrong.

#19thRepresents: Thank you to @SenCortezMasto for a wonderful conversation! Next up, @SenDuckworth in conversation with our Co-founder and Publisher, @amzam. https://t.co/IadVfLYArV

Happening now! Please join @19thnews & I here: https://t.co/Olp0zAlYde

Because Republicans refused to act, Americans everywhere are facing impossible choices like whether to pay rent or pay to put food on the table. The White House must come back to the negotiating table & work with Democrats to help all Americans weather this storm.

Trump’s familiar routine after failing to cut deals with Congress: signing legally dubious executive actions https://t.co/yz0SOEjjD2

Trump's inadequate approach to the #COVID19 crisis won’t help us actually get relief & resources into the hands of hardworking Americans that desperately need help right now. We need to take bold action to do that—which is why Democrats passed the #HEROESAct three months ago. https://t.co/J3zjZyhdOm

✅Supporting working families during the #COVID19 pandemic ✅Schools reopening ✅Donald Trump’s attacks on vote by mail Today, I’ll be joining Amanda Zamora & @19thnews for a discussion on all this & more. Sign up for the livestream here: https://t.co/AMRaNL1PRN

Quoted @bradybuzz

Today's announcement about the NRA wasn't the only good news. A new bill, just introduced by @SenBlumenthal & @jahimes, would close the boyfriend loophole and protect domestic violence survivors from gun violence. This bill will save lives, plain & simple. https://t.co/vHJ4cy67Gd

Every survivor of domestic violence deserves to feel safe & protected. This means we must close the senseless so-called "boyfriend loophole" that allows abusers with temporary restraining orders to legally access firearms. Proud to support @SenBlumenthal’s bill to do just that. https://t.co/rsjOq9rjAU

Say something, Donald Trump. Give our troops abroad peace of mind that you've got their backs against reported bounties on their heads. It's been 45 days.

I don't know about you, but I don't want to see another tweet from the Commander in Chief until he calls out Putin for reportedly putting bounties on our servicemembers. Day 44.

Day 43 of presidential silence on #BountyGate. Donald Trump is hoping we'll forget. But we won't. Our troops deserve so much better.

Quoted @nytimes

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned his Russian counterpart over reports that Moscow offered bounties to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan, indicating that he believes the intelligence warranted a response, even though President Trump called it a “hoax.” https://t.co/V4O8424ND9

A "stern message" from the Sec. of State doesn't go far enough in condemning the reported bounties that Putin placed on our troops—however it *does* smack down Trump’s claim that this intel was a "hoax." Why has Trump still said nothing to defend our troops or condemn Putin? https://t.co/pY7t0XRtJG

So much of the energy that powers our nation depends on pipeline safety. I'm glad to see the Senate pass my bipartisan legislation with @SenatorFischer to reauthorize PHSMA's pipeline safety program & invest in emerging technologies to make pipelines even safer. https://t.co/5NttJ9dF38

Let's be clear: For moms & dads across the county, child care is absolutely essential. 

For the countless families that can’t afford to see child care providers close due to #COVID19, congressional leadership must include the Child Care is Essential Act in the next relief bill. https://t.co/wkPLCLEhNx

Mail-In Ballots.

As the #COVID19 pandemic rages on, delivery of these goods is dependent on @USPS. Postmaster Gen. DeJoy must correct recent changes that have caused delays in getting packages into the hands of Illinoisans & Americans everywhere. https://t.co/z8Zp4B7VUB
