BREAKING: We just confirmed Myrna Pérez to serve as a Judge for the 2nd Circuit. I was proud to champion her to @POTUS. The daughter of Mexican immigrants, she’s one of the nation’s top voting rights and election lawyers, and she will be the only Latina serving on this court.

Extreme weather like this across the U.S. is becoming more common due to climate change—disrupting the lives of millions of Americans. Democrats are working to pass Build Back Better to fight climate change with the urgency that's needed. cnn.com/videos/tv/2021/10/24…

Myrna Pérez is an accomplished voting rights litigator and a brilliant attorney with experience across fair housing law, disability rights, and employment discrimination. I was proud to recommend her to President Biden. The Senate will confirm her to the 2nd Circuit today.

We delivered funding to Save Our Stages to help so many theaters, and venues, and artists, and stagehands, and staff, and more. That’s why I was proud to stand with @PhantomOpera and Andrew Lloyd Webber @OfficialALW.

The fight to protect our democracy is far from over in the United States Senate. Voting Rights are too precious, too fundamental to abandon. As soon as next week, I am prepared to bring another proposal to the floor: the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.

La lucha para proteger nuestra democracia continúa en el Senado. El derecho al voto es fundamental y no lo debemos abandonar. Tan pronto como la siguiente semana, estoy listo para presentar la propuesta de ley que protegerá los derechos de los votantes nombrada por John Lewis.

Latinas earn just 57 cents for every $1 earned by white men. And it would take them until today to catch up to what white men made at the end of last year. @SenateDems will continue working to secure paycheck fairness for Latinas and their families. #LatinaEqualPayDay

NEW: @SenSchumer just moved forward on five more of @POTUS’s judicial nominees, including civil rights lawyer (and former public defender) Jia Cobb and former public defender Judge Michael Nachmanoff. This is terrific news for our courts. #CourtsMatter
