I attended and taught at America’s public schools, and I believe in them. That's why I've got a plan to invest in public schools and ensure every kid in America has the same access to a high-quality public education.
Let’s be clear: Access to safe, legal abortion is a constitutional right. Every time we deny access to safe, legal abortion, we put lives in danger. I’ve got a plan to protect our reproductive health care in every state. #StopTheBansSC
Our farmers face the impacts of climate change every day, from blistering heat waves to record flooding.
The USDA owes them the truth—and the Trump administration must stop burying its head in the sand. The climate crisis will only get worse until we act.
Small businesses are the heart of our communities, and we must make sure that they can thrive. Thanks to the small business owners of Waterloo for chatting with me today about how we can make their businesses stronger.
I became a teacher, a law professor, a senator, and a candidate for president of the United States—all with the tools that a public education gave me. (Yes, that’s me in elementary school!) Share your school photos and why you're #PublicSchoolProud.
Parents would do anything to ensure their children have a fair shot in life—and I want to help. That's why I've got a plan to make sure every kid can get a high-quality public education that sets them up for success.
Our public schools are more segregated today than they were thirty years ago.
I'll renew the fight against segregation by helping integrate our communities—and by strengthening and robustly enforcing Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
A new bulletproof memorial marking Emmett Till’s brutal lynching was installed this week after multiple markers were previously stolen, vandalized, and shot. Racist attacks are not just a part of our history—they are a part of our present, too.
“A white friend admitted that she had never seen a single photo of a lynching. I was shocked, but not surprised. A lynching was a warning. She didn’t need to be warned.” — @MauriceRuffin in @oxfordamerican
Good day to be reminded there is a museum to make us understand the terror and legacy of lynching
“More than 4400 African American men, women, and children were hanged, burned alive, shot, drowned, and beaten to death by white mobs between 1877 and 1950.”
The President of the United States comparing an impeachment inquiry to a #lynching is not a “distraction.” It is a reflection of the very real trajectory of our nation and the very repugnant evil of racism, which still permeates both legislation and language in the United States.
