COVID has shone a spotlight on the inequities in our society. @AOC & I worked to deliver funding for FEMA to pay funeral and cemetery costs for NY families—far too many in communities of color—who can't afford it right now. I won't stop working to end those inequities. https://t.co/hxn1bmE7W7

Thank you @SecCardona for joining @SenWarren and me to talk with student borrowers about their experiences with student debt. President Biden can #CancelStudentDebt and help close the racial wealth gap. https://t.co/qDeSKN8cRD

As a first-generation college student, I understand the need to address student loan debt. Thank you to the students who attended, @SenSchumer, @SenWarren, and @DerrickNAACP. This discussion was an important step forward as we begin working towards a solution. https://t.co/3KUaYCC0cj

"Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez called me up and said there’s a disaster here in Corona, [NY]," says @SenSchumer on push for Covid funeral aid. "I said why don’t we try to pass legislation. We did, and look at the results: a million calls in the first day." https://t.co/7uIKkF8W8Y

A year ago, @AOC and I stood in Queens to fight for funding for FEMA to pay funeral and cemetery costs for families who lost a loved one to COVID. We've been fighting side-by-side for this relief ever since. Today, FEMA began accepting applications. Call 844-684-6333 to apply. https://t.co/uwRpBT439q

On April 2, a senseless attack on the Capitol claimed the life of Officer William “Billy” Evans. Officer Evans will lie in honor under the Capitol rotunda, at the very center of the democracy he gave his life to protect. A service in his memory will take place tomorrow morning.

Over the past year, there has been a surge of violence and discrimination against Asian Americans. We cannot let this surge go unaddressed. This week, the Senate will vote on @MazieHirono's and @RepGraceMeng's COVID Hate Crimes Bill to #StopAsianHate.

Daunte Wright should be alive. There must be an unbiased and transparent investigation into his shooting death. The Brooklyn Center community in Minnesota deserves justice. His family deserves justice.

We started fighting for burial relief a year ago, after Elmcor told us families were choosing between burying their loved ones with dignity and paying rent. Today, those families will finally start to see some relief. Thank you to @SenSchumer for his partnership on this effort.

I’m working in the Senate with @SenBooker and @RonWyden on comprehensive marijuana reform legislation. It's long past time to end the federal prohibition on marijuana and ensure equity for communities—especially those of color—impacted by the War on Drugs. https://t.co/HUyvPCxlpq

The failed drug war must end, and that begins with legalizing marijuana. It’s time to turn the page on this sad chapter in American history and undo the devastating consequences of discriminatory policies that have ruined countless lives and communities. https://t.co/u5WtCzo1uR
