I just voted for the Equality Act to prohibit discrimination against LGBTQ Americans. Every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of who they are or who they love.

On this day in 1870, Hiram Revels became the first African American to serve in Congress after he was appointed to fill the Senate seat once occupied by Jefferson Davis.

Since Sen. Revels, only 10 other African Americans have served in the U.S. Senate. #BlackHistoryMonth

This pandemic has exacerbated long-standing racial disparities in America. Black, Hispanic and Native Americans are more likely to become infected and die from COVID.

Addressing these disparities starts with ensuring vaccines are allocated equitably in our communities.

We have now surpassed the grim milestone of 500,000 lives lost to COVID-19. More than an unimaginable statistic, each death marks an empty space in our families and communities – a parent, sibling, friend, neighbor or colleague.

Today, we remember all those we have lost to this terrible disease.

On this day in 1962, John Glenn was launched into space aboard the Friendship 7, becoming the first American to orbit the earth. The trip was made possible in part by NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, who calculated the orbit and re-entry of Glenn’s capsule—by hand.

After serving 27 years in prison, Nelson Mandela was freed on this day 31 years ago. Today, I'm thinking of his inspiring words: “A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dreamt of.”

African Americans are more likely to lose their jobs during the pandemic, become infected and die from COVID-19.

This didn’t happen by chance. It is the result of decades of discrimination and segregation.

Racial equity is not an isolated issue— it must be part and parcel of our response to this crisis.

Mary Wilson, Co-Founder of the Supremes, Dies at 76

Today, the world lost a trailblazing Motown legend, Mary Wilson. As one of the original Supremes, her voice not only entertained, it empowered countless Black girls and women to find a voice of their own. Her legacy will live on through the generations of artists she inspired.

On this day in 1913, Rosa Parks was born in Tuskegee, Alabama. Her refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus in 1955 helped spark the civil rights movement.

On this day in 1870, the 15th Amendment was ratified, granting African American men the right to vote. Ever since, racial discrimination and barriers to the ballot box have blocked fulfillment of this sacred guarantee.

It’s long past time to secure voting rights for every American. #BlackHistoryMonth

12 years ago today, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law.

Despite progress, millions of women – especially women of color – continue to make less than their male coworkers.

It’s long past time to finally ensure equal pay for equal work.

Shirley Chisholm was a catalyst for change and inspired a generation of women to run and serve.

With a record number of African American women now serving in Congress, I’m reflecting on her inspiring words: “If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.”

On this day in 1973, the Supreme Court affirmed a woman's right to choose in Roe v. Wade.

Today, the right is under attack in states across the country.

We live in the land of the free. If HR 1 passes, we will no longer be the best nation in the world, we will be a communist/socialist country with one party. This is NOT what the American people want or need. Pelosi and AOC need to stop saying they speak for all Americans. They do not. Our Constitution does not need to be changed, fixed or tweaked. Vote NO to any bill that would rob us of our freedoms. We want smaller government and the right to choose if we will wear masks, if we will open our businesses or not, if we will travel or come and go as we please. Please support our Bill of Rights. Please support our Constitution and all amendments as they now stand, especially the 1st and 2nd Amendments. We are counting on you to do the right thing.
ALL "FEDERAL-ELECTIONS" SHOULD BE GOVERNED BY "FEDERAL-LAWS" ....

Good Luck today!
Dear Rep. Marsha Fudge, I would like you, should you be confirmed as head of Housing and Urban Development under Pres Biden, to take a second look at the statistics HUD uses to decide who are homeless and who are not. The fact is, Ms Fudge, that hundreds of thousands of people are homeless if they are sheltered temporarily in other's homes by necessity by couch surfing. The HUD reports never mention couch surfers in their policies or in their calculations. These are people who are putting their hosts at risk if found out. They are people who are waiting for vouchers, sometimes as long as 3 years in my area of Greenfield MA. Please look into this and have HUD take into account this link: https://www.currentaffairs.org/2020/11/couch-surfing-the-waves-of-american-poverty. Thank you.
Open Letter to U.S. Congress Why You Are In Congress Why do people from all around the world wish to come to America? Is it to go to Disneyland? Is it to go to Hollywood? Is it to view the vast beautiful natural wonders of its parks, its rivers, its rustic towns and beautiful scenery from West to East and South to North? The reason people come to America can be found in one word - Freedom! You are in Congress to help insure that we continue to enjoy that freedom for which so many gallant men and women have sacrificed their bodies and lives. What guarantees that freedom? The Bill of Rights and our Constitution are the foundations of that freedom to which we so dearly cling. Without elections free from fraud, we lose our freedom. We lose America. Many states, especially the Swing States of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin,Arizona and Nevada changed their election laws in an unconstitutional manner by not having those changes being enacted by their legislatures per the U.S. Constitution in the months and weeks leading up to the November 3rd Election this year.The changes made in those states encouraged fraudulent voting and that fraud was seen in numerous cases changing the outcome of the Presidential Election. The Supreme Court refused to look at the evidence and try the case. It is their job to enforce the Constitution of the United States of America. They failed to do so and in that failing therein lies the beginning of the end of freedom in America. You can correct their error on January 6th by throwing out ALL the illegal votes cast in the swing states even though that means throwing out many votes that were legal. That is the only way to correct the outcome. If this 2020 election stands, the reason you are in Congress and the reason people from all over the world wish to come to America is gone. Choose freedom!
If those A'hole Democrats don't give us our F'ing money, people are going to get their money directly from the politicians who held up our money! They don't have enough private security and law to save them all from millions of mad as hell Americans! Think about that B!tch! Look at history c'nt! Don't think it can't happen again 'ho'e!
