Our dependence on fossil fuels has the world in an economic and ecological stranglehold, struggling to break free toward a more sustainable path. We have all of the technology necessary to build a carbon-free society. It's a matter of making the investments NOW.

To compete in the 21st century we need to invest in our infrastructure—in our roads, bridges, highways, ports, and airports. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will make that investment.

The Mississippi abortion case at the Supreme Court is a direct threat to reproductive freedom. If Roe falls, 26 states could move to ban abortion. This fundamental attack on women's rights aims to drag us backwards. #BansOffOurBodies

Protecting the freedom to vote and having your voice heard in our democracy is more important than preserving the filibuster. Pass it on.

Climate change isn't a matter of opinion. It's a matter of fact. And the fact is that inaction and denial from a significant swath of elected leaders in this country is imperiling the current and future generations to a more dangerous and unstable planet for many years to come.

The attacks on our democracy are far from over. To protect our democracy, it is imperative that the Senate get rid of the filibuster and pass the Protecting Our Democracy Act and the Freedom to Vote Act.

The Big Lie is gearing up from the top down in its next attempt to subvert our democracy. Everything we care about is at stake. We cannot be complacent.

80% of Americans support legal abortion. Help remind the Supreme Court the vast majority believe #AbortionIsEssential & add your name to the pledge: #BansOffOurBodies

Right now, we’re seeing a relentless, coordinated attack on access to safe, legal abortion - and the consequences could be huge. As the nation's largest union of healthcare workers, we know that reproductive rights are essential. #BansOffOurBodies

Ghost guns make it far too easy for perpetrators of gun violence to get access to untraceable weapons. I wholeheartedly support this decision from the LA City Council.

The Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments today in a case that could overturn Roe vs. Wade. This is it. This is what so many of us have warned about. Reproductive freedom is a Constitutional right, and it is under attack. #BansOffOurBodies

Just this year alone, 33 laws that make it harder for Americans to vote have been enacted in - AL - AZ - AR - FL - GA - ID - IN - IA - KS - KY - LA - MT - NV - NH - NY - OK - TX - UT - WY Unacceptable. We must make it easier — not harder — to vote in this country.

Any discussion or debate that questions how to pay for expansion of the social safety net MUST be coupled with the fact that many of the wealthiest individuals and corporations evade paying BILLIONS in taxes each year.

Mississippi has EXPLICITLY asked the Court to take away the constitutional right to an abortion. On 12/1, the Court will consider the state’s abortion ban that directly challenges Roe v. Wade. We all deserve better. #BansOffOurBodies

I commend the countless organizations in California and across the world that are working to help people that need it most. Today, for those that can give, I encourage you to donate to @LAFoodBank and @SFMFoodBank to support a future where no one goes hungry. #GivingTuesday

It is a travesty that public health has been politicized. Disinformation about the pandemic continues to cost lives every single day, and still the GOP continues to traffic in mistruths and provide safe harbor for dangerous conspiracy theories.
