I love being their mother. Whatever Mother's Day means to you—a day to celebrate a mom, honor a memory, or reflect on your own resilience—I hope your day is a meaningful one. https://t.co/a85NFwFzcp

As our CEO @MSuzman says, no barriers should stand in the way of equitable access to vaccines. We are supportive of a narrow intellectual property waiver for COVID-19 vaccines during the pandemic. https://t.co/tu7XpL8Psg

Last year, over 14 million children didn’t receive any vaccines. Disruptions caused by COVID-19 could leave even more of the world’s most vulnerable without access to immunization. We face an essential challenge: to make up lost ground and reach every last child. #VaccinesWork https://t.co/00QWxzFbyq

This is the moment advocates have been working for and US families have been waiting for. Congress and the White House have a historic opportunity to pass a comprehensive paid leave policy—for the wellbeing of our families, the health of our economy, and the speed of our recovery

Getting young people to open up about their emotional well-being is no easy task. @SoundIt_Out, our new campaign with @AdCouncil, uses the power of music to make these conversations easier. https://t.co/VAF1brdkM9 https://t.co/S9D9Fp2xZm

The crisis in India is urgent. Our hearts are with our staff, our partners, and the people of India. We are collaborating with partners to get oxygen, PPE, and testing capacity to help with the response in key states, in addition to our ongoing support for vaccine production.

The world was a different place when The #MomentofLift hit shelves two years ago, but the message at the center of the book is one I believe more deeply every day: We cannot move society forward without breaking down the barriers that hold women back. #WorldBookDay https://t.co/LTmpGs0WiV

Working mothers are telling us what they need when it comes to policies like paid leave and child care. We should listen. Thank you, @RepRichardNeal, for giving these stories the platform they deserve. https://t.co/4kdEaY5t7q

Today, I’m leading the @WaysMeansCmte’s hearing “In Their Own Words: Paid Leave, Child Care, & an Economy That Failed Women” where working moms are sharing what it’s like to do it all from home. Tune in ⬇️ https://t.co/YaW6jMtS9K

As important as it was, this verdict was not justice. If George Floyd had justice, he would be alive today. But this verdict will, I hope, fuel the faith of everyone who believes that justice is possible. This is not the end. Let’s insist it is just the beginning.

Our country can’t function without caregivers. The work they do is the backbone of our economy and makes all other work possible. That’s why caregiving is essential infrastructure. #CareCantWait https://t.co/6WptzqWj42

Women have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and are central to the recovery. The Generation Equality Forum in Paris is the moment for leaders to make real commitments to address gender equality and accelerate an inclusive economic recovery. https://t.co/vK13fyRipZ
