Join us on @GBH in just a few minutes. https://t.co/gkvjvB0o6z Deval Patrick 2 days ago:   Monday Oct 18 - 2:22pm He was an inspiration and an example. My condolences go out to his wonderful family. Thank you for lending him so often to the Nation. Deval Patrick 2 days ago:   Monday Oct 18 - 2:22pm Colin Powell was an authentic, enduring statesman — serious, without taking himself more seriously than the work; informed, without lacking interest in another point of view; realistic, without losing his idealism; patriotic when no one was looking, without the superficial pomp. Deval Patrick 2 days ago:   Monday Oct 18 - 11:28am RT @ChrystianWoods: I could not be more proud to lead this effort as Executive Director. @DevalPatrick understands the importance of civic engagement and voter education year round. I can’t wait to get to work helping to make lasting change and positive impact in communities that need it the most. https://t.co/6BlhoNBc3H Deval Patrick 3 days ago:   Monday Oct 18 - 10:58am Join us: https://t.co/LLcmgYKx9i Deval Patrick 3 days ago:   Monday Oct 18 - 10:58am We are building power.
@bridgetogether_ supports local, high-impact grassroots organizations year round — not just during the election season — for long-term progressive success. With @faircount, @voteriders, @1kWomenStrong, @AZVetsForward and more, we can make lasting change. https://t.co/9xUqjdqQxj

Watch my entire @TedX talk here: https://t.co/OkrS7E9k4d Deval Patrick 1 week ago:   Thursday Oct 7 - 12:28pm Patriotism demands more than ceremony and sanctimony. It’s about more than what you say you believe. It’s about living the values of equality, opportunity and fair play — even when it’s inconvenient. https://t.co/oybkcsA8b3
Link to Image Deval Patrick 3 weeks ago:   Thursday Sep 30 - 10:56am By welcoming brothers and sisters fleeing crisis, we live our values and express the very best of America. I'm honored to join @WelcomeUS’ National Welcome Council under the leadership of @NazaninSAsh as we help Afghan refugees start new lives as our neighbors. https://t.co/7Q0LuADqNX Deval Patrick 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Sep 28 - 10:10am ICYMI: Our @FOTComm survey found that Americans have real concerns about the power wielded by big technology companies. The industry has to operate within boundaries — and the only entity that can bind it is the federal government.
More from the @WSJ: https://t.co/1bX3nJJdSx Deval Patrick 4 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 22 - 11:35am .@DARollins has earned a reputation for integrity, earnestness, candor, determination and hard work. I applaud her nomination as U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, and I urge the Senate to confirm her promptly. https://t.co/RlhlZ1NGjj Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Tuesday Sep 21 - 10:42am The @POTUS Biden-@VP Harris administration, and Democrats in the House and Senate, put a stake in the ground and said, “Yes, we do belong to each other. We’re not about doing everything for each other, we’re just about the role of government in helping people help themselves.” https://t.co/JRjt0lu45Q

Today, a year after Justice Ginsburg’s passing, women’s rights are under attack in Texas and across the country. We must honor her legacy by voting to protect these rights. Read more from @CecileRichards: https://t.co/1ev8f0swa8 Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Friday Sep 17 - 12:49pm Everyday people deserve a fair shot, and the middle class and those striving to become middle class — like those before who built this country — deserve a government that works for them. This is how we #BuildBackBetter. This is our generational responsibility. https://t.co/oSwdNNDjj4 Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Sep 15 - 4:45pm If we want the democracy we deserve, and Republicans continue to block any real fix, tell your senator — especially Manchin and Sinema — to end the filibuster. Also, register everyone you know so they can vote in the midterms and state elections, and we can widen our majorities. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Sep 15 - 4:45pm Democracy is supposed to be a contest of ideas, where the people get to choose — remember, “government of, by and for the people.” Senate Democrats have a strong compromise on the table to restore that principle. McConnell and his Republican allies scoff at it. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Sep 15 - 2:00pm Thanks to @POTUS' #BuildBackBetter plan and Democrats in Congress for working to renew the American Dream. When Democrats act like Democrats, Americans get a fair shot. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Sep 15 - 2:00pm America is on the brink of investing in what everyday people need to help them help themselves — child care, education, broadband, roads, rails and bridges — instead of giveaways for big corporations and the already-rich who don’t need them and haven’t asked for them. https://t.co/okzH9cQvAg Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Monday Sep 6 - 3:04pm Today, we celebrate our workers, past and present, who built this country and strengthen our communities. Unions make progress possible — organizing for decent wages and opportunity for all. Happy Labor Day! Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Thursday Sep 2 - 3:32pm RT @POTUS: The Supreme Court’s ruling overnight is an unprecedented assault on constitutional rights under Roe v. Wade. Complete strangers will now be empowered to inject themselves in the most private of health decisions. The law does not even allow exceptions in cases of rape or incest. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Thursday Sep 2 - 3:32pm RT @POTUS: Rather than use its supreme authority to ensure justice could be fairly sought, the highest Court of our land will allow millions in Texas in need of critical reproductive care to suffer while courts sift through procedural complexities. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Thursday Sep 2 - 3:32pm RT @POTUS: The dissents by Chief Justice Roberts, and Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan all demonstrate the error of the Court's action here powerfully. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Thursday Sep 2 - 3:32pm RT @POTUS: I am launching a whole-of-government effort to respond to this decision -- looking specifically to HHS and DOJ to see what steps the federal government can take to insulate those in Texas from this law and ensure access to safe and legal abortions as protected by Roe. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Sep 1 - 5:30pm Yet another reason why elections matter. Folks need to get organized and vote to keep private matters private. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Sep 1 - 5:30pm Texas lawmakers passed a near-ban on abortions and gave self-appointed vigilantes the right to enforce it. This law is a shameful government intrusion into a person's right to manage their own health —and a dangerous beginning to the end of any right to personal privacy. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Wednesday Sep 1 - 5:30pm I have never known anybody to make an abortion decision lightly, without examining their circumstances and conscience with profound care — no matter where they stand on the issue. Better to let such a personal, intimate decision remain personal and intimate. But not so in Texas. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Tuesday Aug 24 - 7:56pm Even more adults lack broadband for up-skilling to prepare for tomorrow’s economy. Young parents are sidelined because childcare is scarce or costs too much, just when we need all the talent we have to compete globally. We have a generational responsibility to #BuildBackBetter. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Tuesday Aug 24 - 7:56pm Get it done, Congress. American children and families deserve better lives and futures. Up to 10 million American homes and 400,000 schools and child care centers currently lack safe drinking water. 17 million children lack access to broadband for homework. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Tuesday Aug 24 - 7:56pm Congratulations to the @HouseDemocrats for passing the Budget Resolution. Like @POTUS’s #InfrastructureBill, these are the building blocks for a renewed American Dream, with jobs and opportunity for the middle and the marginalized, not just the well connected. Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Tuesday Aug 24 - 12:56pm I’m looking forward to releasing our recommendations on internet and technology policy for the Biden administration, Congress and the @FCC in the fall. In the meantime, read more about @BostonJoan's work here:
https://t.co/Vs7Ar3C1j9 Deval Patrick 1 month ago:   Tuesday Aug 24 - 12:56pm I was lucky enough to hear @BostonJoan’s insights on fostering a trustworthy, online public square during a @FOTComm Town Hall in May. As we work to vaccinate as many folks as possible from COVID-19, we know that misinformation online continues to be a matter of life or death. Deval Patrick 2 months ago:   Thursday Aug 5 - 6:36pm These are simple, achievable, common sense, temporary measures that can be applied by any private sector enterprise with minimal disruption and major benefits for business and country. We must maximize vaccinations and ensure a safe workplace. Join us. https://t.co/2kNPRdX7hR Deval Patrick 2 months ago:   Thursday Aug 5 - 6:36pm COVID-19 is not over. The #COVIDCollaborative has mobilized dozens of public health experts and administration officials to provide business leaders with clear and actionable measures they can adopt to keep their workers, customers and communities safe: #COVIDSafeZones. Deval Patrick 2 months ago:   Wednesday Aug 4 - 10:45am As Democratic lawmakers fight to protect voting rights in Congress, the question before us is: Do we mean to have a participatory democracy? Does this notion of “government of, by and for the people” really mean anything at all? https://t.co/KuWyoP1qWD
Link to Image Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Thursday Jul 22 - 9:50am As we plan for the #futureofwork, we must keep equity at the center. We can take advantage of these changes by opening doors of opportunity for those who have not yet had a chance to flourish in our economy.
https://t.co/zWRxpv398i Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Friday Jul 16 - 3:57pm This is a great start — but it should only be the beginning. Child poverty is stubbornly high in the U.S., with nearly 1 in 7 kids living in poverty today. We have an opportunity to make life less precarious for all families. We must make @POTUS’ new #ChildTaxCredit permanent. Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Friday Jul 16 - 3:57pm .@POTUS’ historic #ChildTaxCredit will help all families succeed. Are you wondering how the process works for families like yours? Those answers and more can be found on https://t.co/294pPZGwpl. Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Thursday Jul 15 - 12:10pm BEA’s mission is what much of my life’s work has been about — to make real opportunity and lasting change for Black people through advocacy, politics, public policy, and collaboration with the business community. https://t.co/qWwc3vi4h4 Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Thursday Jul 15 - 9:57am That’s why the economy is growing faster than at any time in the last 40 years — and it’s how we #BuildBackBetter. Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Thursday Jul 15 - 9:57am .@POTUS, @VP and Democrats in Congress are delivering on their promise, and now millions of parents will get an extra $3,000 to $3,600 for every child, every year. Helping parents cover child care is another example of the Biden team choosing to invest in us. Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Thursday Jul 8 - 4:37pm RT @juliemason: Former Gov.

Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Thursday Jun 24 - 5:58pm The reality is the Trump administration failed to give Black farmers the support and relief they needed during COVID-19. @POTUS’ #AmericanRescuePlan attempted to level the playing field for Black farmers and Wednesday’s ruling puts that long-overdue progress at risk. Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Thursday Jun 24 - 5:58pm Wednesday’s ruling in District Court continues a century-long streak of governmental discrimination against Black and minority farmers and ranchers when it comes to government assistance.

https://t.co/yh470TnX0k Deval Patrick 3 months ago:   Wednesday Jun 23 - 7:58pm Segregation persists in every American city. Not by accident.

Take a look — and act. https://t.co/2pd8ihC1Ug Deval Patrick 4 months 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 4 months ago:   Friday Jun 18 - 1:13pm Congratulations to @SenMarkey on moving the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act forward!

We have to be better than that. Deval Patrick 4 months 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 months 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 months 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 months 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 months 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 months 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.

It’s on all of us to marshal our resources and capabilities — focusing on innovation, scale and justice — to avert the worst outcomes of #climatechange.https://t.co/VEI7RekjkX Deval Patrick 5 months ago:   Wednesday May 12 - 6:16pm The true patriots left in the Republican House and Senate Caucuses must join Democrats and pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. There is no time to waste. Deval Patrick 5 months 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 5 months 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 5 months 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. For those who find themselves grieving or longing today, we send you strength and love. Deval Patrick 5 months ago:   Tuesday May 4 - 7:32pm The vaccine isn’t just for you — it’s for the safety of your family, your friends, and your neighbors.

My latest in @Newsweek: https://t.co/BwgAxoVmfl Deval Patrick 5 months 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 5 months 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 5 months 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 5 months 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 5 months 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
