One time survival checks don't cut it when the bills haven't stopped coming in every month. We need monthly, recurring, $2,000 survival checks.

991 people have been killed by police in the past year. There were only 18 days where the police didn't kill someone in 2020.

When Philando Castile was murdered by police at a traffic stop in 2016, Minnesota invested $12 million in police training. Where was that training when they killed Daunte Wright just 10 miles from where Derek Chauvin sits on trial for murdering George Floyd?

It wasn't an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist. Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can't be reformed.

Every US lawmaker who blindly votes for military aid to Israel every year, and robotically claims that Israel shares US values, should be forced to watch videos like this and answer how is this militarily justified and how are these the values we claim to share/cherish? https://t.co/W79WeT9UO2

A Palestinian child from Hebron was shot in his eye, he got a rubber bullet which was shot by an Israeli army sniper. The video is clear, the child didn't show any threat on the soldiers. He was inside a vegitable shop. https://t.co/uZvEDP6hvM

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.

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

.@AyannaPressley introduced the bill to make this happen. She understood the importance. This is how we fully address the systems + structures of inequities. Policies on housing, education, employment & much more impact racial disparities in public health and life expectancy. https://t.co/oxxCGGwbfw

Jeff Bezos wealth in 2001: $1.5 billion Jeff Bezos wealth in 2021: $193 billion Average weekly wage in 1973: $872.44 Average weekly wage in 2021: $840.08 Jeff Bezos would be worth nothing without workers. The fight for $15 AND a union must rage on.

Ratio of CEO to typical worker compensation: 1965: 21-1 1989: 61-1 2018: 293-1 2019: 320-1 There is no CEO that works 320x harder than their employees. This gross inequity of pay must stop. The workers make the majority of the profit, not the other way around. https://t.co/NfwnVcKC3o

Become a grassroots cosigner of the Tax Excessive CEO Pay Act! At a time when the pandemic has exposed and worsened income and wealth inequality, it’s critical that we pass legislation that levels the playing field between workers and corporate executives. https://t.co/2cwL8BOl47

$750B for aiding death and destruction is immoral and sick. Instead, we should spend the money to help. $20B to end homelessness $50B for free 4-year public education $50B for Child Care is Essential Act $31B to fully fund the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act https://t.co/Vrlp8DWoLP

Facial recognition technology is racist. @CityofDetroit must acknowledge that in an over 80% Black city this type of surveillance is harmful. Read the studies that show how racist and flawed it is: https://t.co/NTBZH3A2mN #BanFacialRecognition https://t.co/c5ILri1BJG
