Twitter for iPad : Jen Psaki confirms an American Sign Language interpreter will be present for daily briefings going forward.

iPhone : Reproductive justice is economic justice. As the pandemic has concentrated job losses among women, especially women of color, we must acknowledge that there is no economic equality without bodily autonomy. #Roe48

iPhone : Eleven years ago today, #CitizensUnited opened the floodgates for unlimited dark money in our politics. Since then, corporations have doubled down on trying to drown out the voices of everyday people. To put families first, we need campaign finance reform.

iPhone : I am honored to be the first male spouse of an American President or Vice President. But I'll always remember generations of women have served in this role before me—often without much accolade or acknowledgment. It’s their legacy of progress I will build on as Second Gentleman.

iPhone : As the pandemic death toll climbs, it’s easy to look at the numbers and forget that they represent real lives cut short. Today we mourn 400,000 Americans lost to COVID-19, and we hold in our hearts their stories and the loved ones they left behind.

iPhone : We shouldn’t think about the fight for racial and economic justice only on #MLK Day—Black and brown Americans live this reality every day.

We all have a duty to do work in our communities, effect change in our country, and participate in building an equitable and just future.

iPhone : Sylvan Lane Procedural clarification: under House Dem rules, a member is allowed to serve on two non-exclusive committees. Mine are Oversight and Natural Resources. One can ask for a waiver for a third committee. I asked. Others in same situ got waivers. I did not. I play by the rules

Twitter for iPad : Laurie Garrett And this is in a Democrat controlled House. So while I expected this nonsense from Mitch McDonnell, I’m furious that Democrats refuse to model the workplace leadership that they expect of other employers.

Twitter for iPad : Laurie Garrett We are supposed to lead the American people. But we failed to adopt remote voting for more than two months, did not have workplace testing available until November, and do not enforce mask policies.

iPhone : It’s critical that minority-owned and minority-oriented voices have ample space in our media landscape. AT&T appears to be abusing its market power and favoring their own affiliates, rather than independent voices like FUSE TV. It’s unacceptable. (2/2)

iPhone : Last year, AT&T dropped every English-language network serving Latinos other than FUSE TV. Now, the corporation is threatening to stop the distribution while demanding terms that could jeopardize CWA workers. (1/2)

iPhone : We cannot forget that this economic crisis isn’t hitting everyone equally. Women, and especially Black and Brown women, are losing jobs even while men are making gains. We need to fight for a just, equitable recovery.
