Hootsuite Inc. : Three years ago today, we were in Washington, DC, to announce the launch of the #PoorPeoplesCampaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Today we have coordinating committees in 46 states plus DC, and the movement is building.
Twitter Web App : My friend Reverend Raphael Warnock is being attacked right now something terrible. Hes being attacked, because hes a Gospel preacher who decided to run for the Senate on an agenda that says everybody ought to have healthcare & living wages, challenge racism, & lift the poor.
Twitter Web App : Over 25 million people did not have enough to eat the week before Thanksgiving, while Congress and elected officials took a long weekend. COVID relief is expiring in a matter of days. This is not a matter of politics, it's about right and wrong, life and death.

iPhone : McConnell cried b/c Lamar Alexander is leaving the Senate, but he hasn’t shed a tear nor called a vote to help those leaving their families in death from COVID. This is an ugly revelation of his misguided character.
