White supremacy is a poison running through our body politic. We need to say as clearly and forcefully as we can that the ideology of white supremacy has no place in America. Failure to do so will be complicity. Silence will be complicity. We cannot remain silent.

The ideals in the Brown are under direct attack from policymakers who drastically underfund public schools then push a narrative that those schools are failing to justify discriminatory school choice agendas that exacerbate inequity and further divide our communities.
The landmark U.S. Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education turned 68 today. Brown invalidated racial segregation in public schools across the United States and paved the way for integration in nearly every aspect of American life. (1/)

To act like her pattern of behavior and most recent actions didn't happen, claim ignorance of what it meant, or to refuse to take action is equivalent to complicity. I was proud to stand behind my Minority Leader, Senator @Rios_Rebecca in this effort.

This is a great point.
Mannn! I’m always a #SpursGirl….. but I can tell @Suns why they can’t get a championship! It’s all in the leadership! Pop would never be silent about the injustices happening in his city or the attack on women’s rights!

Yes. 100%. Avoiding discussion is absolutely promoting it. Pretending this problem doesn't exist allows it to be perpetuated, empowered and institutionalized.
Replying to @SenQuezada29 @GOP
Avoiding discussion is equal to promoting it? I saw just about every republican silence today. But I also saw democrats speaking up against it. Maybe the both sides bulllshit is tired and old crap. How many people need to die for the both sides to work for you?

The @Suns fully deserve to be booed right now. That 1st half, and their epic collapse in this series so far has just been pathetic and embarrassing.

True words here 👇🏼. But it can't just be former members saying this. We need current #AZLeg members (if any are willing), constituents, lobbyists, donors and media to say this as well.
Yesterday’s horrific murder was a hate crime, motivated by an ever increasing unconscionable acceptance of white supremacy. We must come together and call out extremism, racism and violence. Everyone. Now. 🧵1/4

An important 🧵👇🏼
Noting that in AP copy, 18-yeear-old Michael Brown was an “18-year old Black man,” while 18-year-old Payton Gendron is a “white teenager.”

Huh? The racist terrorist's own 180-page manifesto told police and the world what the clear motive was. Are we just gonna continue to pretend this issue doesn't exist and hope it goes away on its own?
Replying to @AP
An official cautioned the investigation was in its preliminary stages and authorities hadn’t yet discerned a clear motive, but were investigating whether the shooting was racially motivated. The supermarket is in a predominately Black neighborhood. apne.ws/oRPMu44

The elected officials (on both sides of the aisle) who absolutely refuse to engage in conversations about the growing influence of #WhiteNationalism and address issues of racism have created this reality. I'm looking directly at you #AZLeg. rollingstone.com/culture/cul…

This 👇🏼 is what happens when radical extremists get elected to school boards. At the end, it's the @DysartUSD students who will suffer the most.
Dysart School Board members now want an "investigation" into how news of the superintendent's resignation was "leaked." I can save them the trouble. The resignation was an agenda item, posted on their own website, at least 24 hours before the meeting. 1/

The state of AZ killed a man today. And we are no safer for it. We should abolish the death penalty. I sponsored or co-sponsored a bill to do this every year I served in the Legislature.
