We need a #GreenNewDeal to fight the climate crisis—and we need a #BlueNewDeal to protect and restore our oceans so they are a part of our climate solution, and so we can rebuild our blue economy. Read my plan for a #BlueNewDeal:
Our oceans are in crisis—but if we protect and restore them, they can be a crucial part of the climate solution.
Do you have any questions about @ewarren’s plan for a #BlueNewDeal? Submit your questions to marine biologist Dr. @AyanaEliza.
Héctor Figueroa was a beloved leader for @32BJSEIU and all working people. It’s only fitting that his legacy live on through the Héctor Figueroa School.
Elizabeth Warren added,
32BJ President @kyle32bj honoring Héctor Figueroa by remarking that Héctor lead with love: for his family, for the members of 32BJ and all working people, for Queens and for Puerto Rico. #HectorPresente
.@ewarren's #BlueNewDeal would also:
fast-track American-made, union-built offshore renewable energy while
stopping all offshore drilling
invest in regenerative ocean farming
electrify all shipping ports
Climate change is an existential threat—and our coastal communities are particularly at risk as sea levels rise and storms get stronger and more destructive. The ocean must be a part of the climate solution. That's why I've got a plan for a #BlueNewDeal.
We need a president who will take bold action to save our planet from the climate crisis.
Once again, @ewarren has a plan for that.

.@CPDAction and their network do transformative work around housing affordability, fighting climate change, and advocating for economic justice. I'll keep fighting alongside you for the big, structural change our country needs.

Children are dying in CBP custody due to the flu. Refusing to administer flu vaccines is neglectful and cruel. I'll end the unnecessary detention of children and families—and enforce strict standards for medical care for anyone in our care.
Facebook is allowing entities to target misleading and false ads about HIV prevention drugs to LGBTQ+ communities and others. This can have serious public health consequences. Facebook needs to put the safety of its users above its own advertising profits.
71 years ago, Eleanor Roosevelt led the world in adopting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. On International Human Rights Day, we recommit to an America that advocates for justice, protects the rights of all people, and lives up to its values—at home and abroad.

YESSSSSS!!! #BlueNewDeal. It was an honor to advise development of this plan. It’s solid and it’s visionary. Give it a read. Thank you for your leadership, @ewarren. https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1204400467222114304…
Targeting Black and Latinx commuters only further erodes the trust between law enforcement and their communities. If we’re serious about criminal justice reform, we must move towards a system that protects its communities instead of preying on them.
Starting on day one of my presidency, I’ll take bold action to fight climate change. That includes harnessing the power of our oceans to be a key part of our solution to the climate crisis. The future of our planet depends on healthy oceans—and we don’t have time to waste.
Finally, we must mitigate the damage that has already been done as a result of climate change—and prepare for sea level rise, droughts, and extreme weather events. Disaster assistance must be distributed equitably, and we must ensure that everyone gets the help they need.
On day one of my presidency, I'll end all new fossil fuel leases offshore and on public lands—and phase out all existing offshore drilling. I'm committed to leaving no worker behind as we transition to clean energy, and will focus on transitioning workers to offshore wind energy.
I’ll work to reduce marine plastic pollution and ocean trash. And I'll hold Big Ag accountable for polluting our oceans and waterways, which has exacerbated toxic algal blooms, harmed marine life, and contaminated our drinking water.
Coastal and marine habitats are our best natural defense system in the fight against climate change, storing more carbon than tropical forests and acting as cheaper and more effective sea walls. My administration will restore marine ecosystems and expand marine protected areas.
As we transition our economy to 100% clean energy, my administration will prioritize offshore renewable energy. I'll fight to fully restore America's fish stocks—supporting up to 500k additional jobs—and invest in regenerative ocean farming that will help fight climate change.
Climate change has pushed our oceans to the brink. By restoring our oceans and rebuilding our blue economy, we can create good, high-paying union jobs, protect a crucial source of food, and fight climate change.
I called Madeline, a grassroots donor who is studying to be a high school Social Studies teacher! We talked about the role of big money in our elections—and how my #WealthTax can ensure that every kid gets a high-quality public education.

Donald Trump's anti-Semitic comments aren't just repugnant—they're dangerous. People with hateful ideologies feel empowered by him, and we see the consequences in the surge of anti-Semitic incidents following his election. We must fight the bigotry he promotes and enables.
Elizabeth Warren added,
In President Trump's recent speech before the Israeli American Council, he made several anti-Semitic remarks — and it is incumbent on members of the Republican Party to chastise him for it, writes Dean Obeidallah for @CNNOpinionhttps://cnn.it/2E4QLsF
Senate Republicans stole a Supreme Court seat to cement an anti-choice majority on the Court—and we’re seeing the consequences. We need new federal laws and oversight to protect abortion rights no matter what the Court does, and I've got a plan for that.
I'm going to fight to ensure that everyone gets the full health coverage they need, including mental health care, under #MedicareForAll. But people like Olivia will make all the difference to ending the stigma around mental illness—and I'll be fighting alongside them.

Paul Volcker fought to rein in Wall Street banks making risky financial bets, and we sat together as the Volcker Rule was signed into law as part of Dodd-Frank. My heart goes out to his friends and family.
No working strategy—and no transparency. The war in Afghanistan is the longest armed conflict in U.S. history, costing the lives of thousands of U.S. service members and Afghan civilians. It’s time to bring our troops home.
