I can't get enough of how seriously Iowans take their responsibility as the first in the nation caucuses. They're engaged, passionate about issues, and always show up with great questions—even on Memorial Day Weekend! Join us in Waterloo
Lack of access to early education is a problem in many rural parts of the country. Our panel here in Iowa Falls discussed how the Family Bill of Rights would impact families in these communities, especially when it comes to ensuring affordable child care and universal pre-K.
One of the panelists at our Family Bill of Rights roundtable in West Des Moines showed me one of her recent medical bills.
$603. For a strep test. This is absurd.
Families are being crushed by everyday costs, and they need a real economic policy plan to provide relief.
Thanks for including us, and thanks to @SenGillibrand for tackling support for families comprehensively. All people deserve the right and the *ability* to decide if when and how to become parents. Part of repro justice is not just the right but the ABILITY to make repro decisions

.@SenGillibrand is in WDSM leading a round table on her Family Bill of Rights plan. Thank you to @IowaSEA, @PPVotesIA, Save the Children Iowa, State Reps @SundeforIowa, @KarinDerry4Iowa, Robin Covington,…
There's no reason a corporation making over $6 billion in profits can’t pay their workers at least $15 an hour. McDonald’s workers deserve a living wage, the right to unionize, and protection from sexual harassment. I stand in solidarity with the workers on strike. #FightFor15
The Family Bill of Rights was built from the stories, concerns, and needs of families all across the country. Hearing from Iowans at our roundtable today makes me even more excited about how much good this transformative economic policy could do.

Today, the New Hampshire legislature voted to approve an Independent Redistricting Commission—a critical move to protect the integrity of our elections and ensure EVERY vote counts.
State and local elections matter. Your voice matters.

BREAKING: The bill to create an independent redistricting commission just passed the @TheNHSenate on voice vote. #nhpolitics
National attention is turning to issues that have been central to Kirsten Gillibrand's public service.
"I will [guarantee] that no matter what state you live in, you will have a right to access full reproductive services," she tells @MorningEdition.
"[I]f [Trump] wants a war with women on our reproductive freedom, it's a he's going to have, and it's a war he's going to lose."
Thank you, @SenGillibrand, for fighting to protect our right to safe, legal abortion. #StopTheBans
.@SenGillibrand in an op-ed to the Dallas Morning News:
"It is unacceptable that a corporation that makes more than $6 billion in profits refuses to require franchisees to pay workers at least $15 an hour."
There is no dignity in underpaying workers or exposing them to unchecked sexual harassment in their workplace.
To the McDonald's workers and all Americans who work day in and day out to provide a better life for their families: I stand with you.
The politicians interfering in patients' access to abortion would never accept us getting between them and their health care. We won't allow them into our exam rooms either.
Now more than ever, we need to pass the Women's Health Protection Act.
