Kirsten Gillibrand 1 hour ago:   Thursday Jul 16 - 12:05pm Postal banking is a win-win proposal that deserves its place in the Democratic Party’s vision for the future. I've partnered with @DataProgress to make the case: https://t.co/gpcb6od1wG Kirsten Gillibrand 4 hours ago:   Thursday Jul 16 - 9:41am As our country suffers from the economic impacts of this pandemic, we have an opportunity to utilize American ingenuity and bring back jobs back to our communities. We need to restructure the system so more homegrown companies are rewarded for doing so.
https://t.co/G7icOpiUU8 Kirsten Gillibrand 17 hours ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 8:50pm By gutting the National Environmental Policy Act, Trump has sold out our communities to corporate polluters and silenced public input on major infrastructure projects.
Our government needs to work for everyone, not just special interests.
https://t.co/6VKtXhd0kK Kirsten Gillibrand 18 hours ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 7:02pm RT @SPECNewsCNY: Sen. Gillibrand wants $15 billion of government funding to strengthen workforce training infrastructure: "We need to re-work the system so that companies are rewarded for bringing jobs back to America." https://t.co/MT3EjcT1HE Kirsten Gillibrand 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 12:20pm Voters recognize that postal banking does what the Postal Service does best: it delivers. I look forward to working with @JoeBiden to highlight this proposal and ensure access to basic banking for all Americans.
https://t.co/gpcb6ouCoe Kirsten Gillibrand 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 9:15am Reminder: Wear a mask. Kirsten Gillibrand 1 day ago:   Tuesday Jul 14 - 7:19pm The military can no longer ignore the scourge of sexual assault and harassment within their ranks. In Vanessa's memory—and on behalf of all who have spoken out—we must pursue meaningful reform.
https://t.co/3eK6a07PMD Kirsten Gillibrand 1 day ago:   Tuesday Jul 14 - 3:00pm Let's put a bank in every post office.
It would change millions of families’ lives by providing access to basic banking—and it would shore up the Postal Service, a critical institution in critical condition.

Kirsten Gillibrand 2 days ago:   Monday Jul 13 - 2:00pm Betsy DeVos wants to fully reopen schools without any concrete plan to do so safely, despite the rising number of COVID-19 cases across the country.
This is inept leadership at best, malfeasance at worst. https://t.co/mvmcyid9Ec Kirsten Gillibrand 3 days ago:   Monday Jul 13 - 12:59pm Even though the president himself votes by mail, he doesn't want you to have the same option.
This shouldn’t be a partisan issue but Republicans have made it one.
With everything on the line this election, we must fight to strengthen vote-by-mail. Kirsten Gillibrand 5 days ago:   Saturday Jul 11 - 9:15am Look out for others. It’s the right thing to do. Wear a mask. Kirsten Gillibrand 5 days ago:   Friday Jul 10 - 5:50pm Ruth Bader Ginsburg's words are as true today as they were in 1993.
Generations of advocates have spoken up, pushed back, and fought hard to protect abortion rights.
As these rights hang by a thread today, we won't stop fighting. We'll continue to carry the mantle. https://t.co/vIocVw5EKz

Kirsten Gillibrand 6 days ago:   Friday Jul 10 - 10:22am Last year, the Department of Defense announced a record number of sexual assaults in the military, and the lowest conviction rates for assailants on record. There are no more excuses. The system is not delivering justice.
We need the Military Justice Improvement Act. #PassMJIA Kirsten Gillibrand 6 days ago:   Thursday Jul 9 - 5:18pm In her dissent of yesterday's Supreme Court decision, Ruth Bader Ginsburg noted that as many as 126,000 women may have lost access to free contraception, with disproportionate impacts on Black and Latinx women.
Birth control is health care. We'll keep fighting for access. Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jul 9 - 9:44am Millions of Americans are relying on federal unemployment benefits to make ends meet. Congress has an obligation to extend this aid and I plan to do everything I can to ensure that it gets done.
https://t.co/OlHJaVfdYL Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Wednesday Jul 8 - 2:54pm Excited to see @JoeBiden sit down for an important conversation with health care advocate @AdyBarkan. They share the empathy we need to tackle the big problems we face—which we need now more than ever. https://t.co/zlmAafZv73 Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Wednesday Jul 8 - 12:26pm The Supreme Court’s ruling says that your boss can decide your access to birth control. To be clear, these attacks aren’t about religious freedom. They're part of a calculated attempt to take away reproductive rights.
I won't be discouraged in our fight. Our work isn’t over. https://t.co/gbvQ0LYMrr Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Wednesday Jul 8 - 8:45am The service members who have bravely come forward with their own stories of sexual assault, harassment, and retaliation since Vanessa Guillen's murder deserve justice.
I will not stop fighting for accountability and reform.

Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Tuesday Jul 7 - 9:15am Since 2013, I’ve fought to pass the Military Justice Improvement Act, which would professionalize the military justice system to better address sexual assault cases. For the past five years, it’s been denied a vote in the Senate. We must keep speaking out for change. Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Monday Jul 6 - 6:02pm We’re seeing a resurgence in COVID19 spread across the country as people stop practicing social distancing and stop wearing masks.

If the Senate doesn’t act soon to help, things stand to get very bad, very soon. It’s time to get back to work and give them direct federal relief. Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 6:32pm These reforms are necessary and I'll keep fighting for them as long as I have to. But we shouldn't have to go another year waiting for this. Our troops have made great sacrifices for our country—it's our obligation to stand by them. (4/4) Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 6:32pm In fact, just a few hours ago, I tried to get this passed on the Senate floor as an amendment to our defense bill.
It was, once again, denied a vote.
How much longer do our service members have to wait for change? How many more tragic cases must we hear about? (3/4) Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 6:32pm We need systemic reform to address sexual assault in the military. Every year, I've fought to pass the Military Justice Improvement Act that would fix this issue and give service members an unbiased, impartial justice system.
Every year, it's denied a vote in the Senate. (2/4) Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 6:32pm Vanessa Guillén's disappearance is a tragedy and an outrage. My heart is with her family. They deserve a full, thorough investigation.
Sadly, her story has raised further questions about the military's ability to address sexual assault and harassment within their ranks. (1/4) Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 5:31pm For Trump to not read his briefings—and to not thoroughly understand risks to our national security—is a dereliction of his duty as commander-in-chief. https://t.co/UupJp19t7R Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jul 1 - 9:33pm RT @allinwithchris: Sen. Gillibrand on intelligence briefing: “I certainly didn’t learn anything that was useful. The briefing that we had was classified, but it was entirely inadequate. We didn’t even get the information that you would normally see in the New York Times.” https://t.co/5jY5zAroZO Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jul 1 - 8:58pm We cannot put any faith in a president who places his own judgment over those of his intelligence agencies. Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jul 1 - 7:10pm Trump is unwilling to stand up to Vladimir Putin. He's failing to stand up to threats to our national security.
And he's failing to protect and honor our troops—one of his core responsibilities as Commander-in-Chief.
We need accountability. Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jul 1 - 6:38pm President Trump called Russia's bounty scheme a hoax, trying to discredit clear assessments from intelligence agencies. It's deeply concerning. And it's harming our troops and our national security. https://t.co/i8KaAflHmJ

https://t.co/UquD0i5tX2 Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jul 1 - 2:07pm For President Trump to threaten to veto our defense bill over Confederate monuments further demonstrates a failure of leadership and a fundamental disconnect with the American people. https://t.co/IqhUJJ6DFx

Link to Image Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Monday Jun 29 - 12:59pm In light of recent reporting that Russia offered to pay Afghan militants to kill U.S. troops—and that Trump was aware of it—I'm demanding congressional hearings. Congress must investigate publicly, establish accountability, and determine the consequences. Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Monday Jun 29 - 12:00pm Remember: This Supreme Court case was the culmination of a long, meticulous plan by the GOP to restrict a woman’s right to choose.
We will *not* stand for these attacks any longer. Let’s flip the Senate and elect more fighters for reproductive rights.
https://t.co/gSMlM6uivN Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Monday Jun 29 - 10:41am In a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court rejected the latest attempt to effectively eliminate access to abortion.
I’m relieved but we cannot become complacent. The GOP and anti-abortion extremists will keep trying to roll back our rights—and we'll need to keep fighting back like hell. https://t.co/UsjmlsHbpK Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Sunday Jun 28 - 6:15pm Trump sat on this information for months.
