A bipartisan group of lawmakers led by @RepPressley are demanding information from DOJ on the backlog of over 17,000 people seeking clemency: “The growing backlog of clemency petitions undermines the promise of a fair and just criminal legal system” bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Behind every clemency application is a person, a family, a community. With 17,000+ applications pending, we need detailed data on the clemency backlog to inform our response & help us address this problem head-on. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Denying parents the baby formula they need to feed, nourish, and care for their infants is unconscionable. Abbott Nutrition must explain when Massachusetts families can expect to see formula back on store shelves. wgbh.org/news/local-news/202…

@RepPressley "Dr. Henry lacks legitimacy with the Haitian people, and a path toward a democratic transition in Haiti must be backed by its people and civil society.” 2/5

“This program — universal free school meals — is one of our last lines of defense for families who are food insecure & struggling. It provides two meals a day for kids, which alleviates hunger & saves parents from having to pay for school meals”@ErinMcAleer1, CEO of Project Bread
With millions of families still struggling with food insecurity, we should be *expanding* programs that keep our children fed—not slashing them. bit.ly/3yAKCC1

We cannot agree more with Congresswoman @AyannaPressley. The combination of emboldened white supremacy and easy access to guns is lethal, and too many lives have been lost because of it. We are devastated for all who have been impacted by this act of racist hate.
White supremacy and gun violence are grave threats to all of our communities and the brutal, hateful, and targeted shooting in Buffalo is devastating. Praying for everyone impacted. It is so far beyond time for Congress to act and save lives.

Protecting our reproductive freedom is a health, economic, racial & disability justice issue. Abortion care is a fundamental human right. Full stop.

Reminder: it’s not OR — it’s AND. #CancelStudentDebt AND make college more affordable & accessible. #CancelStudentDebt AND close the racial wealth & wage gaps. #CancelStudentDebt AND crack down on predatory for-profits. False choices don't deliver for the people—action does.

A union for every workplace. Organized power is realized power & I stand with the Trader Joe’s employees in MA demanding the safe, healthy, supportive work environments that we all deserve.
EXCLUSIVE: Trader Joe’s workers in Massachusetts are organizing to form the company’s first ever union. They say Trader Joe's has repeatedly slashed pay & benefits and neglected safety issues in recent years. They're unionizing to make the company live up to its own values.

Things I have not been called while being a man in favor of reproductive rights. * Shrill * A slut * A slut who (paradoxically) is too ugly to have anybody want to reproduce with them * A sea turtle So, you know, other guys who want to jump in this pool, the water is just fine.
