That part.
So vaccine mandates are an infringement of personal freedom, but abortion bans aren't?

The highlight of my day was @AyannaPressley showing how for @HaitianStudies ask only she could. It feels so good to have a friend and congresswoman who is such an advocate for #Haiti
“Haitian lives are Black lives and Black lives matter.” Thank you @RepPressley for your generosity and commitment! And @reineayiti and @HaitianStudies for bringing us into dialogue with such a fierce public advocate for justice!

Policy that reflects the lived experiences of the people requires diverse Congressional teams who feel supported, safe, seen, & free from discrimination, from @BeaconBloc to Capitol Hill. (1/2)
Black staff members in the halls of Congress say getting hired is a long process of networking, milking connections and scoping out which members of Congress will not flinch at a conversation about race, or will allow aides to wear their natural hair. nyti.ms/3jaRRbm

From leading the charge for paid family leave, affordable housing, and climate solutions that meet the moment, @wutrain's bold vision for Boston, Massachusetts has improved the lives of thousands of working families. That's why we're endorsing her in her race for mayor.

Senate R's are audacious enough to occasionally quote Dr. King in their floor speeches & to refer to Cong. John Lewis as a national hero, but then work actively to sabotage the life's work of both these men. It's the hypocrisy & obstruction by insurrectionists still in ofc for me

That’s right. The Duchess said what she said y’all. #PaidLeaveForAll
Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex believes it’s time for #PaidLeaveforAll. In a powerful letter to Congress, she’s standing up for millions of American families who need and deserve guaranteed paid leave. Read and share her letter: paidleaveforall.org/theduche…

Young people are literally putting their lives on the line for climate action while some Members of Congress won’t even risk a penny of their corporate PAC money to back climate investments. We need a Green New Deal now more than ever. Love and solidarity, @sunrisemvmt 💜
BREAKING: 5 young people begin hunger strike at White House, calling on @POTUS to keep his promises for climate justice. The stakes of this moment are life and death, and we are putting our bodies on the line to fight for the side of life. #HungerStrikeForClimate
