For years, we defunded schools. We defunded health care. We defunded programs that keep us safe, healthy & housed. A lot of people who feign outrage when we talk about divesting from systems that perpetuate violence, trauma & death were quiet about the above policy violence.

Thanks to the continued work of my dear friends Tony Molina and Jaime Rodriguez, we have our very own memorial dedicated to these veterans in the South End. It’s the only one like it in North America and I never like to miss the annual celebration there on Veterans Day. https://t.co/z8F8Z3BalT

Today, we celebrate our Puerto Rican veterans, many of whom gave the ultimate sacrifice without ever realizing the full freedom, just treatment and equality they deserved.

Happy first National Borinqueneers Day 🇵🇷 The Borinqueneers were a unit of Puerto Rican soldiers who fought for the US, but endured years of injustice & discrimination during their time in the military. “Borinquen” refers to Puerto Rico’s pre-colonial name.

New data from @usedgov show that canceling $50,000 of student loans would erase debt entirely for 84% of borrowers. I’m looking forward to making the case in my @SenateBanking subcommittee hearing tomorrow about why President Biden must #CancelStudentDebt. https://t.co/qp2Aaw4giW

The mother of Daunte Wright says the 20-year-old called her when he was pulled over by Brooklyn Center police about 1:40 p.m. He told her police pulled him over for air fresheners hanging in the mirror, she told reporters.

They say change isn’t possible in a place like Kentucky. Well, we already proved them wrong. We showed them what’s possible in Kentucky. In 2022, we can shock the world. That’s why I’m exploring a run for U.S. Senate. Join us: https://t.co/PHdndrl972 https://t.co/VnRc521QS2

Like most cats, Sojourner Truth Pressley Harris (aka Sojo) doesn’t give her love away freely. But the Pressley-Harris family is so grateful to have earned it. Happy #NationalPetDay 💗 https://t.co/iiT5jacs1M

Delores Brown should be sitting on her porch this afternoon, fellowshipping with her grand babies & neighbors. But she was gunned down on her porch yesterday. 73 years old. Dorchester, praying for our healing. Praying for our peace. We deserve to live lives free from fear.

BREAKING: @AyannaPressley joins fired Local 26 Nine Zero Hotel workers. Nine Zero must join the 30 Boston hotels agreeing to recall their workers with seniority once business returns. Thank you to our long-time ally for fighting side by side with working families! #mapoli https://t.co/DFXLG1TZ8M

I worked in hospitality. I know the immense pride you all take in your work. Nine Zero’s decision not to reinstate your contracts is a betrayal of you & your families after you've given so much. Nine Zero workers, I see you. I love you. I’m proud to stand in solidarity with you. https://t.co/0E91JR49fa

Policing is a public health crisis. Mass incarceration is a public health crisis. Housing injustice is a public health crisis. Medical apartheid is a public health crisis. Racism is a public health crisis.

Mourning DMX should mean acknowledging the ways we as a society have criminalized addiction. It means acknowledging how our language perpetuates stigmas towards people with substance use disorder. It means moving towards a more supportive world for people with addictions.
