Deval Patrick 18 hours ago:   Wednesday Jun 23 - 7:58pm Segregation persists in every American city. Not by accident. To fix the harm it does, we must first understand how it happened. @sbd_film from @silkworm_studio is a sober, worthwhile rundown of this history. Take a look — and act. https://t.co/2pd8ihC1Ug Deval Patrick 3 days ago:   Sunday Jun 20 - 3:56pm Happy Father’s Day to fathers of all kinds — dads, stepdads, grandpas, uncles, godfathers, and all the guys who show up for others to offer unconditional love. And to all the ones who have done that for me, THANKS. Deval Patrick 6 days ago:   Friday Jun 18 - 1:13pm Congratulations to @SenMarkey on moving the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act forward! Deval Patrick 6 days ago:   Friday Jun 18 - 11:46am In 2007, we made June 19th “#Juneteenth Independence Day” in Massachusetts. Now, it’s a national holiday! I hope we both celebrate this milestone in freedom and also reflect on how much farther we have to go to make freedom and justice real for all. https://t.co/E10HN33jpJ

We have to be better than that. Deval Patrick 4 weeks ago:   Tuesday May 25 - 3:18pm Nobody who believes Black Lives Matter believes blue lives don’t. Justice is not a limited resource. More justice for some does not mean less justice for others. America, are we who we say we are, the land of “freedom and justice for all”? Deval Patrick 4 weeks ago:   Tuesday May 25 - 3:18pm “Rather than reckon with the sea change that called into question how societies protect citizens and the underlying meaning of safety, governments and law enforcement have instead targeted protests and protesters with the same brutal force against which the protests were aimed.” Deval Patrick 4 weeks ago:   Tuesday May 25 - 3:18pm The most basic reforms — not to mention righteous and popular proposals to undo the wave of voter suppression in the states — are stalled in the U.S. Senate as well. As one observer put it in The Guardian: Deval Patrick 4 weeks ago:   Tuesday May 25 - 3:18pm But fundamental change has not reached Black people crowded together in poor Black neighborhoods. Too many police keep on killing and abusing too many Black people. Deval Patrick 4 weeks ago:   Tuesday May 25 - 3:18pm People everywhere, of every background and station, marched. Much commentary was offered, many promises were made — and many board rooms, executive suites and other elite institutions, and a lot of advertisements, have become more diverse. That’s all good. Deval Patrick 4 weeks ago:   Tuesday May 25 - 3:18pm One year ago today, as the whole world surely knows, George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police. One suffocated him by pressing his knee into his back for more than nine minutes while the others watched or kept bystanders from interfering. Outrage was nearly universal.

There is no time to waste. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday May 12 - 6:16pm When you combine this with their efforts to suppress the vote, interfere with vote counting and draw district lines to engineer outcomes, anyone can see — and every American should — that the Republican Party is out of ideas and will sacrifice democracy itself for control. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday May 12 - 6:16pm I’m a competitive Democrat, but I take no pleasure in today’s Republican chaos. By voting to punish a truth teller for not promoting the Big Lie, Congressional Republicans have revealed themselves again as loyal to power above principle. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Sunday May 9 - 3:03pm Happy Mother’s Day to mothers of all kinds — moms, stepmoms, aunts, grandmas, dads doing double duty, and all maternal figures who show unconditional love.

My latest in @Newsweek: https://t.co/BwgAxoVmfl Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Thursday Apr 29 - 9:58am Asking us all to share responsibility for creating that kind of broad-based opportunity is what it means to be part of a national community. It’s the opposite of “divisive,” no matter how many times Congressional Republicans claim otherwise. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Thursday Apr 29 - 9:58am Great schools, broadband access, enough to eat, a place to live, preparation to compete in a changing economy can lift individuals and their families into prosperity. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Thursday Apr 29 - 9:58am Wealth is not wrong. But earning your way to wealth, or to a better, more secure life, ought to work for everybody in America, not just the well-connected — not just folks who already have the tools they need. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Thursday Apr 29 - 9:58am Judging from the party's “response” last night to @POTUS’ address, Republicans in Congress are out of ideas. Nothing to offer people left behind by the economy and nothing to show for almost 40 years of trickle-down policy. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Apr 28 - 10:15pm Thank you, President Biden, for seeing me and other Black people as lives that matter, and urging action by Congress next month on the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. https://t.co/u760VpDSZV Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Apr 28 - 9:44pm Everybody wins when we fix roads, bridges, trains, water pipes, airports and parks.
