Reproductive justice is economic justice. As the pandemic has concentrated job losses among women, especially women of color, we must acknowledge that there is no economic equality without bodily autonomy. #Roe48

Eleven years ago today, #CitizensUnited opened the floodgates for unlimited dark money in our politics. Since then, corporations have doubled down on trying to drown out the voices of everyday people. To put families first, we need campaign finance reform.

I am honored to be the first male spouse of an American President or Vice President. But I'll always remember generations of women have served in this role before me—often without much accolade or acknowledgment. It’s their legacy of progress I will build on as Second Gentleman.

Today, we celebrate. Tomorrow, we get back to work. Together, we will #BuildBackBetter.

Congratulations, @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris! #InaugurationDay

As the pandemic death toll climbs, it’s easy to look at the numbers and forget that they represent real lives cut short. Today we mourn 400,000 Americans lost to COVID-19, and we hold in our hearts their stories and the loved ones they left behind.

We shouldn’t think about the fight for racial and economic justice only on #MLK Day—Black and brown Americans live this reality every day.

We all have a duty to do work in our communities, effect change in our country, and participate in building an equitable and just future.

Thank you, California.

Thank you, Madam Vice President-elect!

It’s critical that minority-owned and minority-oriented voices have ample space in our media landscape. @ATT appears to be abusing its market power and favoring their own affiliates, rather than independent voices like @fusetv. It’s unacceptable. (2/2)

Last year, @ATT dropped every English-language network serving Latinos other than @fusetv. Now, the corporation is threatening to stop the distribution while demanding terms that could jeopardize @CWAUnion workers. (1/2)

We cannot forget that this economic crisis isn’t hitting everyone equally. Women, and especially Black and Brown women, are losing jobs even while men are making gains. We need to fight for a just, equitable recovery.

Quoted @InStyle

Rep. @katieporteroc knows people don’t trust Congress anymore and she’s on a mission to fix that. "I’m really trying to think about, 'How do I show people what’s at stake here,'" she says on #LadiesFirst with @laurabrown99.

Listen (and subscribe!) here:

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately hurt women, especially women of color and low-income women. It’s a reminder of why we need to fight for full equality, not just “better than it used to be.”

Quoted @StopBigMoney

Six months during a year with no scheduled federal elections is nothing more than a stunt, @jpmorgan.

Stop trying to buy elections for Wall Street—forever.

I’ve never taken corporate PAC money, including from Wall Street banks, because our grassroots movement is people-powered. If JP Morgan is serious about change, they should shut down their PAC instead of this short-lived PR stunt.

Quoted @CNN

US employers cut 140,000 jobs in December, according to the latest jobs report. Women accounted for all the losses, losing 156,000 jobs, while men gained 16,000.

What the headline doesn't tell you: this disproportionately affects Black and Latina women who often lack paid sick leave or the ability to work from home.

Expanding economic opportunity has never been more important.

Sergeant at Arms charged with maintaining order in the House refused to let me bring my masked 10 yr old into the chambers when I had no childcare, forcing him to sit outside, but allows mask-less Republicans and domestic terrorists in to attempt to overthrow our government.

I've seen enough. Jon Ossoff (D) defeats Sen. David Perdue (R) in GA's other Senate runoff. #GASEN

Democrats win control of the Senate.

I haven’t seen enough. I could watch our democracy triumph all night long. And if I don’t get to bed soon, I might.

Say it with me: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

It’s official: I was sworn in for my second term in Congress today. I’m ready to get to work and fight with everything I’ve got for Orange County families.
