A vote to confirm Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court is a vote to take health care away from millions of Americans and to rewind the progress of women’s rights in this country by decades.
Join me and the Congressional Black Caucus to discuss the Jobs & Justice Act of 2020
We need to pass the George Floyd Justice In Policing Act to make sure that police officers aren't only getting prosecuted for shooting at walls when they are also shooting at an unarmed civilian in her home.
These charges are an affront to the movement for justice and peace in this country and conveys loud and clear that Breonna Taylor’s life does not matter to the legal system of the United States.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky grand jury brought no charges against Louisville police for the killing of Breonna Taylor during a drug raid gone wrong, with prosecutors saying Wednesday that...
The main motivation for Donald Trump to fill the Supreme Court vacancy is to take away health care from millions of Americans in the middle of a pandemic.
While this year’s celebration will be different from previous years, what remains is the sweet joy and strong hope of a coming new year.
To all of those celebrating Rosh Hashanah tonight, l’Shanah Tovah!
Bill Barr comparing the sale of human beings to public health professionals trying to save lives is abhorrent but consistent with Trump's desire to stoke racial tension in this country.
Despite their efforts, we will come together.
I have faith in the American people.
Absolutely irresponsible and dangerous. The unnecessary deportation of 300,000 family members, neighbors, and co-workers in the middle of a pandemic will help the spread of COVID-19.
Critics say ending temporary protected status for people from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan will devastate families and communities, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.
Giving detained women hysterectomies without any reason or even proper anesthesia is not simply medical malpractice -- it is a human rights abuse and a crime against humanity.
Democratic lawmakers and immigration advocacy groups are calling for the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general to investigate the claims, centered on conditions at a facility in Georgia.
Arrest the police officers who murdered Breonna Taylor.
This year, we mark #HispanicHeritageMonth as we confront a pandemic that has disproportionately impacted communities of color.
I join in celebrating the contributions of Latinos and Latinas throughout this nation’s history, including those on the frontlines fighting this disease every single day.
I’m thankful and relieved that the two L.A. County sheriff's deputies that were senselessly shot over the weekend are expected to recover.
The tape is absolutely horrendous to watch. Violence like this is never acceptable.
My prayers are with the officers and their families.
Donald Trump knew COVID-19 was dangerous.
He knew it was contagious.
He knew it was airborne.
He knew it was deadly.
He just didn't care.
The first job of the Commander in Chief is to protecting and defending the United States.
In new book ‘Rage,’ Trump says he deliberately played down threat of pandemic and says he feels no responsibility to better understand the anger and pain of Black Americans.
As #LaborDay comes to a close, we have to remember our commitment to taking tangible actions to support our workers.
The House passed the Heroes Act months ago - it’s time for it to be taken up in the Senate and signed into law.
Six months into our battle against COVID-19, the disease has killed more than 181,000 Americans, and the pandemic continues to disproportionately affect communities of color. Black Americans, Latinos, Asian Pacific Islanders and Native Americans are significantly more likely than white Americans to be diagnosed with COVID-19, be hospitalized over it and die of the disease.
Despite these appalling trends, the most promising covid-19 vaccine trials are reportedly failing to recruit participants of color.
Vaccines must be effective for everyone — including those most at risk.
If it’s not safe for students to go back to school, it’s not safe for families to be evicted from their homes.
What bike violation is so severe that they needed to stop Dijon Kizzee?
What bike violation is so severe that they needed to chase him?
What bike violation is so severe that they needed to shoot him as many times as they did?
If he dropped a weapon, why was he then shot?
It’s shootings like this one, like the one that took the life of Andres Guardado, and like the ones that have taken the lives of so many others, that have resulted in Angelenos organizing a Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission with subpoena power.
The people are fed up. Enough.
Family members at the scene identified the dead man as 29-year-old Dijon Kizzee
Donald Trump is visiting Kenosha, Wisconsin to agitate violence.
Tom Berryhill was a friend and colleague from the other side of the aisle who was always committed to improving the quality of life of all Californians. When we served together in Sacramento, we were charged with closing a $40 billion deficit. Tom understood that there were going to be no good solutions for either side and put the good of the state over the political pressure of the time, which showed his courage and also his decency. My thoughts are with Tom’s family during this challenging time.
Thank you Mayor Wheeler for condemning Donald Trumps’s provocation of violence in your city and standing up to the racial divide he is encouraging in this country.
The House of Representatives passed transformative legislation to hold police officers accountable more than 2 months ago.
The time for it to be signed into law is NOW.
Chadwick Boseman brought Black legends, both of this world and beyond, to life for generations to come.
The characters he played allowed America to see Black people on the silver screen in positive roles — we saw the strength of Jackie Robinson and the brilliance of Thurgood Marshall.
In Black Panther, we saw the first major film about a Black superhero.
The movie depicted beautiful images of Black people as strong and brilliant and the continent of Africa was portrayed in all its beauty, opportunity and power. Black people around the world were inspired and celebrated the movie.
Rest in power Chadwick Boseman.

Tomorrow at 10AM! Join Congressmember Karen Bass and me for a conversation about State of California Employment Development Department, US Postal Service, housing, services related to COVID-19 and other pressing issues.
Making the decision to force hundreds of my constituents to go to new designated locations for their mail in the middle of a pandemic is absolutely unacceptable.
I am in contact with both the post office and the Housing Authority working to get to the bottom of these changes.
Mail would no longer be delivered to residents' doors at Mar Vista Gardens under a new plan. Officials say it would keep letter carriers safer, but residents are skeptical.
I’ll be on REVOLT TV with Eboni K. Williams tonight - tune in!
Legislation to make it easier to prosecute police officers and hold them accountable for their actions has been sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk for 63 days.

Younger people, older people, and everyone in between — wear a mask.
We do not live in an equal society.
Jacob Blake nearly lost his life because of it.
Jacob Blake broke up a fight and police shot him in the back seven times.
Dylan Roof killed nine people at Emanuel AME Church and police bought him Burger King.
$75 billion for testing, tracing, and treatment has been sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk for 102 days.
On Friday, Trayford Pellerin was shot 11 times by police after he walked away from them and tried to enter a gas station store.
On Sunday, Jacob Blake was shot in the back 7 times by police after he walked away from them and tried to enter his car with his kids in it.
Trayford has passed. Jacob is fighting for his life.
60 days ago, we passed legislation to make it easier to prosecute police misconduct and to remove bad actors from departments while also investing in our communities.
The Senate and the White House could act TOMORROW.
We can transform our system.
