Hank Aaron on athletes who refused to meet with Trump: “I can understand where the players are coming from... I understand they have their own issues and things they feel conviction about. They have a right to that. I probably would be the same way, there’s no question about it.”

Bullhorn in hand, @AOC joined Hunts Point strikers on January 20 and declared, “It’s time we stand up for essential workers." Her decision to join the picket line on inauguration night was a powerful show of solidarity.

Hank Aaron earned honor and international acclaim as a home-run hitter for Milwaukee Braves. He was a hero in Wisconsin when I was growing up AND in his native Alabama, where Hobson City—Alabama’s first self-governed Black municipality—named Aaron as its honorary mayor.

President Biden’s executive orders are being recognized internationally as tangible evidence of a shift in direction for the US. By acting boldly from Day 1, Biden’s taking necessary action domestically AND repairing the US’s image on the global stage.

Quoted @NicholsUprising

In one of his first acts as president, @JoeBiden used his mandate well--ordering an end to the Muslim ban that, in the words of Rep. @IlhanMN, stemmed “from a hateful ideology that justifies dividing people based on their religion and country of origin."

Replying to @IlhanMN: The Muslim ban is no more and I am grateful. Most people who haven’t been personally impacted might not get the significance a…

President Biden is issuing #ExecutiveOrders to Expand Food Stamps and Speed Stimulus Checks. These are immediate—and vitally necessary—responses to the crisis of HUNGER in America. Congress must follow Biden’s lead by approving the $1.9T relief package.

President Biden is right: the vaccine rollout has been a "dismal failure so far." He's signing executive orders and directions for 100 MILLION VACCINATIONS IN 100 DAYS. This is a bold, activist and necessary response to the crisis Trump left behind.

"No Wisconsinite has ever been elected to the presidency or the vice presidency. But, as of yesterday, two former residents of Madison will have served as vice president."

The Muslim ban is no more and I am grateful. Most people who haven’t been personally impacted might not get the significance and think of it as only “symbolic” but for us it’s significant.

“To work together without slipping into an American fascism will be the central problem of postwar democracy.”

More than 75 years ago, Wallace warned us about the crisis we are facing in 2020.
