I am humbled by the trust voters in Westchester and Rockland have placed in me, and grateful for the opportunity to serve the community that raised me — the community that just sent an openly gay, Black guy who grew up in Section 8 housing and on food stamps to Congress. https://t.co/O88nA5LN5q

Expired license plates. Air freshener hanging from the mirror. A counterfeit $20 bill. I am so tired of the excuses they come up with to murder Black people in America. #DaunteWright should be alive right now.

"Congress can bring us closer than ever before by passing the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act — uncompromised. If we squander this opportunity, future generations will not — and should not — forgive us." -- @MondaireJones https://t.co/WHkqpLLLJh

As Republicans work overtime to disenfranchise people of color, we are closer to a new Jim Crow than at any point in the last 50 years. Now is the time for a Third Reconstruction — one that abolishes Jim Crow once and for all. My @washingtonpost op-ed ⤵️ https://t.co/KoKoaj2ZIy

I got chills watching this video. Last year, @Booker4KY inspired a nation. He can build the broad, multiracial coalition required to defeat Rand Paul in Kentucky. We need more candidates like him. https://t.co/HuOmSFBgPw

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

To be seen as a deadly weapon before being seen as a human being. To live your life in service, only to be dehumanized and criminalized in your uniform. To fight for peace and justice, only to be denied it yourself. I have felt this too many times. It hurts, and it ain’t right. https://t.co/QPAoKyRVh8

Army Lt. Nazario was driving his new car home. He was pulled over, pepper sprayed, and arrested without explanation. This is racism. It’s about the domination and humiliation of a Black man because he asked questions and “didn’t comply.” https://t.co/RFE79TjWJ8

Excellent interview with @MondaireJones on @NPRWeekend. Rep. Jones (1st out gay Black man elected to Congress) spoke about expanding the SCOTUS, the imperilling of democracy via #VoterSuppression tactics of the GOP and LGBTQ being disenfranchised by a GOP"partisan hacks."Superb.

We've made great strides toward defeating COVID-19, but we still have our work cut out for us. I'm grateful for organizations like @PPact and local organizers across this country working on creative solutions to promote vaccine equity in all our communities. Help is on the way. https://t.co/y8F0wZPFBj

Everyone needs a vaccine and accurate information to end this pandemic. Today, @PPFA launched a $2M bilingual campaign to help ensure the hardest hit communities get the information and health care they deserve. https://t.co/EpNdte52V4

DMX was a cultural icon who contributed so much to our music. A resident of White Plains, I was proud that he lived in our congressional district. My heart breaks for his family and loved ones. https://t.co/I8evxaNxTA

The agreement to #FundExcludedWorkers means 500,000 undocumented and formerly incarcerated New Yorkers, including 60,000 in Westchester, will finally receive the relief they need and deserve to weather this crisis. Proud to stand with our community to celebrate this victory. https://t.co/63VvdlpGvR

Child care is infrastructure. So is health care. So is care for our seniors.

Lt Gov. Justin Fairfax just equated Terry McAuliffe calling him to resign after he was accused of sexual assault to how George Floyd and Emmett Till were treated because there was "no due process"
