Some Tweets from Kirsten Gillibrand

    I’m running for president. Let’s prove that brave wins. Join me:
  • I think public service is about listening—that’s why I’ve done more than 60 public events (and counting!) since announcing my run for president. Tune in to our town hall with voters in Concord, NH:
  • Thank you for having me! It’s time to make national paid family leave the priority it deserves to be.
  • If we want to break down the systematic barriers holding back too many unemployed and underemployed Americans—particularly in low-income communities—we have to make accessible the job training people need to work their way into the middle class.
  • Racist language like this has led to violence throughout the world’s history. No human being is an animal. We have to be better than this.
  • Loved meeting voters (and future voters) in Dover, NH!
  • My national public service plan would make college accessible while advancing our goals in infrastructure, green energy and job training.

    Thank you Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for joining us this afternoon at the 2019 National Action Network Convention.
  • I think the American people want a president who is brave, who will lead with compassion rather than hate, and who will repair our moral fabric. That's why I'm running.

    Sen. Gillibrand on : "What the voters want is someone who is authentic, who is honest, someone who does the right thing ... If you look at all these candidates who just broke through in '18, every single one of them ran from a place from their heart."
  • Survivors of campus sexual assault have shown extraordinary bravery by sharing their stories, demanding change, and leading a national movement to end this scourge at our colleges and universities. We should honor their bravery with action.
  • We should value women more than NRA greed, period. Let's pass the Violence Against Women Act in the Senate now.
  • 51 years ago today, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. We can't forget his legacy of fiercely tackling injustice, nor the hate that cut his life short. His goals of equality and resistance to bigotry are as timely as ever—let's honor him by continuing to fight for them.
  • For far too long, colleges and universities have gotten away with turning a blind eye to the epidemic of campus sexual assault. We owe it to survivors to change the system and hold institutions accountable for protecting students.
  • One of my favorite days of the year: the first Congressional Women’s Softball team practice of the season. Press team doesn’t stand a chance!
  • Ten years ago today, Iowa legalized marriage equality: one of the first steps toward making it the law of the land in America. Our work isn't done until every LGBTQ person is safe and free from discrimination—but we're not done fighting. Cheers to victories, past and future.
