Congratulations to @OnwardTogether partner @swingLeft and grantee @Flippable_org for joining forces! After helping to flip dozens of seats in 2018, I'm thrilled they're uniting to target key state and congressional seats in this redistricting year. https://twitter.com/swingleft/status/1131188072706707456
His last campaign manager, Anne Kronenberg, said of Harvey Milk: "He imagined a righteous world inside his head and then he set about to create it for real, for all of us." No better legacy. #HarveyMilkDay

Y’all are mad @realDonaldTrump is set to pardon our American warfighters but this is okay? This piece of trash set to be released and I don’t hear @HillaryClinton squawking about it being “grotesque.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2019/05/20/american-taliban-will-be-free-after-years-is-us-ready-welcome-him-back/?utm_term=.c8a6c0411702#click=https://t.co/ys86So3Rhi

In the face of extreme abortion bans sweeping the country, we all have to stand up for women's rights. At noon tomorrow, join @PPAct, @NARAL, @OnwardTogether partner @IndivisibleTeam, and other groups to #StopTheBans. Find an event near you: https://www.stopabortionbans.org/

Watching the mayor’s race in Denver and pulling for @MayorHancock—he’s a proven progressive leader who will work hard for Colorado.
In 2019, every day is Endangered Species Day. We have to act now to prevent the loss of 1 million species over the next few decades—losses that would have a profound effect on human beings. https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment/2019/05/06/one-million-species-face-extinction-un-panel-says-humans-will-suffer-result/
More than 200 major corporations, 500 statewide and local organizations, a bipartisan consensus in Congress, and 70% of Americans support legislation protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination. I am proud to stand with them and the other @HRC to support the #EqualityAct.
As I said in my keynote celebrating the essential work of @heartlandhelps: We have to affirm that torture, physical and psychological, is wrong and will not be tolerated—whether it happens in a prison in Syria or in a cage on our southern border.
Grateful to Planned Parenthood for continuing to provide essential services in Alabama and elsewhere while helping to fight the state legislative bans on women’s human and constitutional rights. https://twitter.com/PPFA/status/1128684889346277378
We’ve raised money to reunite families separated at the border and brought in $12 million for progressive groups, candidates, & committees during the 2018 elections. There’s so much to be proud of. I hope you’ll take a moment this week to reflect on how far we’ve come together.
If you want to be inspired every day, I highly recommend giving our partners a follow: @alliance4youth @arenasummit @CollectivePAC @colorofchange @domesticworkers @emergeamerica @IndivisibleTeam @iVoteFund @latinovictoryUS @runforsomething @swingleft @votolatino @WeDemandJustice
Happy two-year anniversary to our @OnwardTogether partners. In two years, we’ve brought on 13 incredible groups as official partners and supported many more through grants.
None of us should accept a future in which our daughters and granddaughters have fewer rights than we do. Choose a way to help, ask a friend to join you, and let's get to work.
Here's what you can do today to fight back: 1. Donate to @abortionfunds: https://abortionfunds.org/abortion-funds-101/ 2. Support @EmergeAmerica, @EMILYSList, @runforsomething, and @TheDLCC, who work to elect pro-choice candidates 3. Join @supermajority to organize for the future
The abortion bans in Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky, and Mississippi are appalling attacks on women's lives and fundamental freedoms. Women's rights are human rights. We will not go back.
As I told @Columbia students last night: For all the progress we've made on civil rights and women's rights, there are people working to turn back the clock—and now many of them have lifetime appointments on the federal bench. Get involved in the public sphere. Push for change.
I'm on @Columbia's beautiful campus tonight for a conversation with President Lee Bollinger. You can watch live here: https://livestream.com/ColumbiaUniversity/events/8673277
As this remarkable piece of journalism reminds us, the ordeal for survivors of torture doesn’t end after they are freed. I’m honored to be giving the keynote at a celebration tomorrow of @heartlandhelps’ transformative work to help survivors heal. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/11/world/middleeast/syria-torture-prisons.html
I’ve dedicated much of my career to improving the lives of children and families, and part of that was working to improve the foster care system in America. @Participant & @hbodocs have a new film about it. Watch the filmmakers discuss with @trevornoah: https://twitter.com/TheDailyShow/status/1126691032836427776
The FDA approved the very first birth control pill 59 years ago today, and the world opened up for women. Reproductive freedom is simply the foundation of women’s ability to achieve their dreams. We have to continue defending it. #ThxBirthControl
Thank you to all the students at @dartmouth for their thoughtful questions yesterday on everything from Iran and China to AI and the place of social media in our news environment. This generation doesn’t miss a beat. The entire talk is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54ptkhviDbw

I'm so sorry to hear of Freia David’s passing. I came to know her story when the Boston Globe reported on how a little retirement party to mark 32 years at McDonald's became a 100-person celebration, so loved was Freia. Her life reaffirmed our differences only make us stronger.
Six-week abortion bans are effectively total bans on abortion, as many women don't know they are pregnant at six weeks. I stand with everyone in Georgia and around the country fighting these illegal measures that threaten women’s lives and freedoms. https://www.twitter.com/CBSNews/status/1125778778377027589
“The work of democracy is about trying to do together what we cannot do individually. And so for me the best way to escape my disintegrating body is to engage in this collective struggle.” @AdyBarkan is fighting for health care as a human right: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/03/opinion/ady-barkan-als-health-care.html
An American mother today is 50% more likely to die during childbirth than her own mother. It’s time to tackle the crisis of maternal mortality. #WithoutMom https://twitter.com/RockefellerFdn/status/1125881298625732610
No one should have their right to vote taken away because of fines. The Florida GOP's measure requiring people to pay court-ordered fees before regaining access to the ballot is a modern-day poll tax unworthy of our democracy. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/florida-legislators-agree-to-limit-felons-voting-rights-critics-call-it-a-new-po ll-tax/2019/05/03/243839e2-6dcf-11e9-be3a-33217240a539_story.html
Take a moment today to help. Call your representatives and urge them to vote yes on the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, which would help protect families in detention and make sure they are treated with respect: 202-224-3121 #UntilEveryFamilyIsReunited
Today marks one year since the administration announced its "zero tolerance" policy at the border. Families were ripped apart with no plan to reunite them. Many are still waiting. It is a defining failure of policy and humanity.
My prayers go out to everyone grieving the tragic loss of @RachelHeldEvans. She lived a life of generosity, justice-seeking, and inclusive faith. So many people were touched by her voice and her example. What a life and what a legacy. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/04/us/rachel-held-evans.html
Happy anniversary! Latino Victory has made amazing strides in growing Latino political power and increasing Latino representation at every level of government, and I'm so proud to call you an @OnwardTogether partner. https://twitter.com/latinovictoryus/status/1125045113674137601
These facts are stark: “Around 1 million species already face extinction, many within decades.” We urgently have to protect natural habitats and tackle climate change. This cannot be our legacy. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/06/climate/biodiversity-extinction-united-nations.html
Bill and I send our warmest congratulations to Meghan, Harry, and the entire @RoyalFamily for the new addition! What a blessing.
We'll be in Seattle tonight with @WhitfordBradley! In addition to famously playing a White House staffer on TV, Bradley is a progressive activist in real life and I’m looking forward to chatting about what we can all do to help Democrats win in 2020. See you all soon.
Bill, Chelsea, and the @ClintonFdn are launching a new podcast, and I am terribly biased but I can't wait to listen. Subscribe and hear a preview here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/why-am-i-telling-you-this/id1462232601
Bill and I will be in Vancouver tonight with @SophiaBush! Sophia's an amazing storyteller, activist and—as she'll tell you—most importantly, she's a voter. http://IAmAVoter.com

Imagine if a Democratic 2020 candidate said: "China, if you're listening..." Just saying that shows the absurdity of the situation we find ourselves in.
Seeking asylum is a human right. We shouldn't charge fees to people who are fleeing persecution and violence. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, but first give us $50?" No. https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/29/politics/trump-asylum-changes/index.html
Bill and I are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend Ellen Tauscher. Ellen woke up every day determined to make a difference, and make a difference she did.
Like clockwork, where Democrats win, Republicans seek to put new restrictions on voting. We have to be vigilant in the fight to protect and expand voting rights, law by law and state by state. https://www.npr.org/2019/04/22/714950127/after-democrats-surged-in-2018-republican-run-states-eye-new-curbs-on-voting
I'm excited to see @CecileRichards, @aliciagarza, @aijenpoo, and the Pantsuit Nation community build this powerful new force for gender equity. Supermajority's goal is to train and mobilize 2 million women over the next two years. https://twitter.com/supermajority/status/1122817808713297920
Bill, Chelsea and I are excited to meet a @ClintonFdn supporter next month in New York! Your support helps change lives around the world—hope you'll throw your hat in the ring to join us: https://wjcf.co/2GxTaNz
This was... cathartic. Thank you, @JordanKlepper!
