Magically found $768,000,000,000 for a defense budget, but the same folks can't fully fund the $45- $60 billion needed to remove lead service lines in our country.

.@NidaAllam: The grassroots campaign you ran was centered on love and real people. They can't stop you. I remember when I didn't win a state senate race + it just motivated me to keep fighting. Now I am a Congresswoman. You are not done, Nida. You are just getting started.
Woke up this morning feeling reenergized and ready to continue the fight! At 28 years old & 7 months pregnant we gave super pacs a run for their money! And this little girl kicking in my belly NEEDS each and every one of us to keep fighting for #ABrighterFuture

.@SummerForPA I can't wait to serve with you. Thank you for out-working the hate and those who don't want to see an unapologetic Black woman in Congress who speaks truth. You showed them and inspired us all that a people centered campaign is powerful. Onward to November!

#13District residents don't play when it comes to our public health + quality of life. They organized, educated neighbors and showed up. And it worked! Say it loud: We have the right to breathe clean air!

Go @SummerForPA! Let's get it done PA! We need another member of Congress who won't sell out our people to corporations.
We need bold leaders in Congress who are prepared to stand up for the needs of working families against the billionaire class, against the powerful special interests, against enormous corporate greed. That's exactly what @SummerForPA is all about. PENNSYLVANIA: VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

The attack in Buffalo was America's 198th mass shooting of 2022 — and we're only 19 weeks into the year. That averages to about 10 attacks per week. n.pr/3Lb4EFT

Heartbreaking that Black folks can't grocery shop, go to church, march against police brutality w/o being targeted by white supremacists. White supremacy gets a pass in our country. Prayers are not enough. We need courage + the will to take on white supremacy as the threat it is.
Pearly Young, 77, was killed today in #Buffalo shopping for groceries. For 25 years she ran a pantry where every Saturday she fed people in Central Park. Every. Saturday. She loved singing, dancing, & being with family. She was mother, grandma, & missionary. Gone too soon 🕊

Our bodies, our choice.
The crowd around the Levin Courthouse was electric! However long it takes, we’ll never give up fighting to expand personal freedoms and stopping the extremists trying to take them away. #BansOffOurBodies

This is truly indefensible and disrespectful, as is the killing of #ShireenAbuAkleh. Your silence is troubling.

This is sickening. Violent racism, enabled by $3.8B in unconditional military U.S. funds. For the Israeli apartheid govt, Shireen's life didn't matter - and her dehumanization continues after death. @StateDept: condemn this horror or does being Palestinian make you less American?
Replying to @AJEnglish
"The Israeli army is asking people if they are Christian or Muslim. If you’re Muslim you weren’t allowed in." - @ajimran Israeli occupation forces are attacking Palestinians during the funeral of killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

The sheer obscenity of #Israeli forces storming a hospital, beating up the mourners, & preventing them from carrying Shireen’s coffin to her final resting place is horrendous. Now they’re surrounding the hearse having separated it from the mourners, who themselves are besieged.
