Cory Booker 7 hours ago:   Monday Aug 19 - 8:06pm Thank you for your leadership, Aaron—I couldn't agree more. We need to confront the rise of hate crimes and white supremacist violence in this country.

Congress must reverse this harmful gag rule & protect these critical services. #ProtectXhttps://t.co/UyFkDAdgeh Cory Booker 13 hours ago:   Monday Aug 19 - 2:23pm Necessary but far from the justice Garner's family deserved. That this result took 5 years is a travesty. We urgently need to fix our broken criminal justice system and build communities where people aren’t afraid of those who are supposed to protect them. https://t.co/EvsY1Uqdm2 Cory Booker 13 hours ago:   Monday Aug 19 - 1:52pm So grateful to have your support, David, and inspired by your incredible work in Wisconsin.

On Day One, I will:
✅ Keep guns out of the wrong hands with gun licensing
✅ Hold gun manufacturers accountable
✅ Bring the fight to the NRA https://t.co/si7MK2cQZD Cory Booker 1 day ago:   Sunday Aug 18 - 8:02pm I will use the full force of the presidency to combat hate crimes and root out white supremacist threats wherever they are.

Cory Booker 1 day ago:   Sunday Aug 18 - 1:05pm But let's not be mistaken. The fight for that fundamental right to vote is far from over for too many Americans—particularly for people of color and others who face voter suppression and other steep barriers to vote. Cory Booker 1 day ago:   Sunday Aug 18 - 1:05pm Today marks 99 years since the 19th Amendment was ratified and women were granted the right to vote—the hard-won result of generations of Americans who fought for their fundamental right to have their voices heard. Cory Booker 1 day ago:   Sunday Aug 18 - 8:43am We as a faith community need to come together and turn our faith into action—because faith without works is dead, and we need to bring this nation back to life. https://t.co/Bijyl8G00T

Link to Image Cory Booker 2 days ago:   Saturday Aug 17 - 11:06am For too long we've let the gun debate be framed by the NRA & corporate gun lobby. We need to regain the narrative—it’s an assault on our basic American liberties that we can’t go to a shopping mall, synagogue, or concert without fear of violence. Enough. https://t.co/S71nNo91Kx Cory Booker 3 days ago:   Friday Aug 16 - 9:23pm Why do you think Russians and Republicans are doing everything they can to subvert African American votes? It’s because they often realize our power more than we do—and the most common way we give up our power is not realizing we have it in the first place. If we vote, we'll win. https://t.co/1ocEADm5Kd

His death was a tragic reminder that far too many Black men’s lives are cut short by gun violence. So today we celebrate his life & recommit to this urgent fight. Cory Booker 4 days ago:   Thursday Aug 15 - 5:06pm Right-wing extremists have been behind the majority of terrorist attacks in this country since 9/11—and most of them were white supremacists.
These acts of hatred do not happen in a vacuum. We need to act to prevent more violence.

My plan to #EndGunViolence: https://t.co/si7MK2cQZD Cory Booker 6 days ago:   Tuesday Aug 13 - 12:55pm This administration’s cruel new policy called #PublicCharge is another racist policy that targets the less fortunate & is intended to prevent certain immigrants from becoming citizens & voters. It’s wrong & goes against our values. I will reverse it as president. https://t.co/Vs5CnowKv4 Cory Booker 6 days ago:   Tuesday Aug 13 - 11:52am How did we get to a place where our fellow citizens are being slaughtered in houses of worship, in nightclubs, at concerts—children shot hiding under their desks.

Please turn your outrage into action & support these families: https://t.co/pZmFaBsfw2 Cory Booker 1 week ago:   Friday Aug 9 - 6:56pm Until Black people are no longer disproportionately killed by police, we should lift the voices of those like the protestors who stand up for justice—and speak out ourselves for a more fair criminal justice system that holds police accountable. To be silent is to be complicit. Cory Booker 1 week ago:   Friday Aug 9 - 6:56pm I am also thinking about the everyday citizens who stood against this police violence and racism and were tear gassed for their patriotic acts. Ferguson called to the conscience of our nation and inspired a movement that rightly continues.
