The establishment of a national office dedicated to advancing environmental justice and civil rights at @EPA will help ensure our work to address the climate crisis and our greatest environmental challenges are grounded in justice and equity.
I am honored to announce that @EPA is creating a new Office of Environmental Justice and Civil Rights — elevating these critical issues to the highest levels of the agency.

An Arizona law that is over 150-years-old and denies the women of Arizona access to abortion even in cases of critical health needs, rape, and incest can now be enforced. This is shameful, and dangerous.
Arizona can enforce a near-total abortion ban that has been blocked for nearly 50 years, a judge has ruled. The decision, which likely faces appeal, means clinics in the state will have to stop abortions to avoid criminal charges against medical workers. apnews.com/article/abortion-…

We stand with the brave women and men of Iran demonstrating peacefully to secure their basic rights. We will continue to hold Iranian officials accountable for the senseless death of Mahsa Amini and other human rights abuses.

States may extend Medicaid postpartum coverage from two months to one year, thanks to our American Rescue Plan. I'm pleased to see North Carolina joining our efforts to improve maternal health—the 24th state to do so.

More progress in the climate fight. The Kigali Amendment will phase down the use of super-polluting chemicals that are toxic to our planet. This is a step forward for American workers and industry as we combat the climate crisis. whitehouse.gov/briefing-room…

Queen Elizabeth II lived an extraordinary life of service, and we join the millions around the world who mourn this incredible loss. Through the trials and triumphs of the past seven decades, she led with strength, with wisdom, and with grace.

To build an economy that works for all of us, we must build an economy that works for Black women. On Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, we recognize that for so many women, the gender wage gap acts as a virtual tax, making it more difficult to pay the bills and invest in their future.

Any senator attempting to pass a national ban on abortion or working to criminalize health care providers is clearly disconnected from the priorities of everyday Americans.

Let’s be clear: extremist Republicans in Congress will stop at nothing to chip away at a woman’s right to control her own body.
