The American Jobs and Families Plan is a once in a generation opportunity to strengthen our families and help them thrive. It's time to be bold and pass universal paid leave, affordable child-care, and universal pre-k. https://t.co/ogfhqtK2kH

Native women make just 60 cents to every $1 earned by white men. In just a month, that's a difference of $2,055. Over a year, that's $24,656. After 40 years, that's a loss of $986,240. Pay women what they've earned. It's time to close the gender pay gap. #NativeWomensEqualPay https://t.co/TMFWVi07Lp

We must pass the #ForThePeople Act — and we can't let the filibuster hold us back. https://t.co/idO8xy9i7E

Most people don't even know they're pregnant by six weeks. Abortion rights shouldn't be in the hands of men like Abbott who don't care about the impossible situation they're putting survivors in. We need to codify #RoevWade and pass the Women's Health Protection Act. https://t.co/WQVrYzXjmA

The pandemic exposed the divide between working families and the top one percent. While many struggled to get by, nearly 500 people became billionaires. If we want to level the playing field, we need to strengthen our unions. This #LaborDay, it's time to pass the #PROAct.

Abortion. Climate Change. Gun violence. Voting Rights. On every single issue Americans are demanding action on, the filibuster is being used to hold back progress. I'm sick of it. Americans are sick of it. And we shouldn't let it hold us back any longer.
