Well done! #JosephineBaker rests in power and now in appropriate and well-deserved honor. Although her remains will stay interred in Monaco, this honor in France is most fitting.
Today, Josephine Baker is honored at the Panthéon. To the Civil Rights activist, Résistance agent and performer, France is so grateful to be one of your deux amours.

The House-passed bill is a win for LGBTQ families, who have suffered disproportionately through the pandemic, and face greater hardship with childcare costs, healthcare and affordable housing, and violence in the greater community. The Senate must move on it as soon as possible.
The House passed a President Joe Biden's Build Back Better bill. The measure now goes to the Senate, where it faces an uncertain future. bit.ly/3oJu6ct

Today, we pause and remember the lives lost on #September11, 2001. Local officials, #TroyNY residents, and members of the public safety community gathered at the City’s 9/11 Memorial Park this morning to reflect on the 20th anniversary of this tragic event. #911NeverForget
