All rights are women’s rights. Thank you Burlington, Iowa, for having me for this important conversation about protecting reproductive freedom. Right now, we’re in a dark place, but moments like this leave me hopeful.
In his order, Judge Reeves wrote "here we go again." A lot of us feel that way. Time & time again, politicians have tried to strip women of their rights. Enough of this. We need to codify Roe v. Wade, repeal the Hyde Amendment & vow to never go backwards. https://www.essence.com/news/federal-judge-blocks-mississippi-fetal-heartbeat-bill/
On the road in Iowa and the drives get long. So my team challenged me to see how many dad jokes I could deliver in a minute. How’d I do?

Everyone deserves access to quality, affordable health care. To the trans community, know that I—and so many others—will fight this alongside you. https://twitter.com/translawcenter/status/1131975509162823680
Before you speak to me about religion, first show it to me in how you treat people. Before you tell me how much you love God, show me how much you love his children. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell as in how you choose to live and give. —@CoryBooker
The abortion bans in Georgia, Alabama, Missouri & more are part of a coordinated effort to erode women’s rights. My plan will protect reproductive freedom & expand access to reproductive care. This is an everybody issue, & we all need to join the fight. https://coryb.kr/2JxzuNJ
Iowans! Just a heads up: If you signed up for our Conversation with Cory event in Fairfield tonight, please note that there’s been a venue change. Details here: https://www.mobilize.us/bookerforiowa/event/93098/ Hope to see you there!
Please know this ban isn't in effect yet—together we can stop these coordinated attacks on reproductive freedom. Standing in solidarity with the women of Missouri today. https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/1131953036895694861
Excited to hit the road this afternoon for a four-day RV trip across Iowa, yes because of the road snacks and the karaoke with my team, but also to meet people along the way. See you soon!
Transgender people face enough challenges in the world. This proposal leaves them even more vulnerable. It's cruel, inhumane, and could be fatal. We're better than this. Everyone deserves a safe place to lay their head. https://twitter.com/TransEquality/status/1131580563155050496
Massive corporations are profiting to the tune of billions of dollars and are still not providing livable wages for workers.

Muhlaysia Booker. Michelle Washington. Dana Martin. Ashanti Carmon. Claire Legato. And those are just the names we know.

James Baldwin once wrote in a letter of solidarity to Angela Davis, “if they take you in the morning, they will be coming for us that night.” Abortion access isn't just a fight for women, it’s for all people to ensure control of our own bodies. #StopTheBans

@Oprah thank you for recognizing the critical work of Principal Akbar Cook & the West Side High School staff, who provide their students with a place to belong.

At a time when student debt is at its highest & HBCUs are facing challenges, Robert Smith’s generous gift to Morehouse feels more powerful than ever.

We should live in a country that trusts women to make their own health care decisions. We should be able to trust that our government will protect that right.

Moments ago, the Missouri House passed a restrictive bill that prohibits abortion after eight weeks of pregnancy. It's one of many bans to pass in the last month.
