These bans won’t end abortion; they will just end safe and legal abortions. https://twitter.com/NARAL/status/1131955768364867584

This week I released a plan that would force corporations to prove they are not engaging in pay discrimination. The gender pay gap won’t quickly close on its own unless we take action. Corporations must be held accountable.

SOUTH CAROLINA: I’m headed your way again next week for an education town hall to discuss the critical issues facing our nation. Can’t wait to hear from you. RSVP now→ https://www.mobilize.us/kamalaforsc/event/93624/?utm_source=tw&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=190526&utm_content=SC
The Trump Administration continues to break up families and deport people who pose no harm to public safety. This is unconscionable. As president, I will reinstate DACA and implement DAPA to protect Dreamers and their parents from deportation. https://chicago.suntimes.com/platform/amp/news/2019/5/24/18639166/ice-deportation-chicago-daca-parents-colombia-immigration
We are failing victims of sexual assault. We must listen to their stories, then fight for justice. Do not ignore these strong survivors. https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/1131609496814522378
Our economy isn’t working for most Americans. An unexpected expense shouldn’t throw your life into financial chaos. My LIFT Act will give families up to $500 per month to help make ends meet. https://www.washingtonpost.com/us-policy/2019/05/23/americans-arent-ready-weather-sustained-downturn-new-report-shows/
Republicans want to allow adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ+ couples when they want to adopt children. We are better than this.
No corporate PACs. No federal lobbyists. You are the core of our campaign. Every dollar matters to ensure we can meet as many voters as possible. Pitch in today. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/kdh-social-1905?refcode=tw190525
Here’s a startling statistic: Nearly one out of every five teachers in America stops teaching after five years. This hurts our kids. Teachers deserve our support. That’s why I introduced a plan to raise teacher's pay an average of $13,500 a year.
Almost one-third of transgender Americans already lack regular access to health care. This decision would make things worse. We will fight this. https://twitter.com/nprpolitics/status/1131961816010153985
Those at the top are thriving, while the middle-class is barely scraping by. One of the first things I’d do as president is reverse Trump’s tax scam and use that money to give the middle class a real tax cut. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/24/business/highest-paid-ceos-2018.html
I can’t sit by knowing Black women in America are far more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than others. Let’s do something about it. https://www.bet.com/news/national/2019/05/22/kamala-harris-act.html
Our team has set an ambitious fundraising goal to raise $500,000 online before midnight on Friday, May 31. I hope I can count on you to pitch in for our last end-of-month deadline before the presidential debates. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/kdh-social-1905?refcode=tw190524
The Equality Act is critical to ending discrimination against sexual orientation and gender identity nationwide. No one should ever be fired from their job or dehumanized because of who they are. Republicans, bring this bill to the Senate floor now.
For every Republican lawmaker determined to restrict women’s rights to her own body, there are thousands of people across the country ready to speak up and fight back for our reproductive rights. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1131959373184589826
In case these past few weeks haven’t made it clear: Roe v. Wade is under attack. Lawmakers across our nation are trying to take a woman’s right to make decisions about her body away from her. We will fight with everything we have to protect that right.
It’s about time we close the gender pay gap that exists in our nation. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-harris/kamala-harris-proposes-equal-pay-measure-to-close-gender- gap-idUSKCN1SQ0YH
This is unconstitutional, un-American, and must be stopped. Period. https://twitter.com/jonathanvswan/status/1131956727144943616

The onus shouldn’t be on working women to prove they aren’t being paid equally, it should be on large corporations. As far as I am concerned, this is a simple American value — pay people for the work they do. http://kamalaharris.org/equalpay
My message to corporations: Time to prove you're paying women equally.
My message to corporations: Time to prove you're paying woman equally.
Waitresses, rideshare drivers, short order cook. Those are just a few jobs almost 1 in 5 teachers work outside the school system just to make ends meet. When I am president, teachers will be paid fairly. https://www.epi.org/publication/low-relative-pay-and-high-incidence-of-moonlighting-play-a-role-in-the-teacher-s hortage-particularly-in-high-poverty-schools-the-third-report-in-the-perfect-storm-in-the-teacher-labor-marke/
My Maternal CARE Act I re-introduced would establish implicit bias training through the medical profession to help ensure women — especially Black women — have access to comprehensive, culturally competent care. A healthy mom means a healthier baby, community, and society.
Let’s speak truth: Climate change is real.
I stand in solidarity with @McDonalds workers across the country on the picket lines today as they demand a $15 minimum wage, the right to unionize, and a workplace free from sexual harassment. Workers deserve the rights and benefits they've earned. #FightFor15

Because of my equal pay plan we released this week, Los Angeles Councilmember @BobBlumenfield launched Equal Pay LA to implement our plan on a local scale. Proud that L.A. is leading the way to close the pay gap and ensure women are paid fairly.

Pay gap disparities means women on average lose out on $400,000 over the course of their career. That number is even higher for Latina, Native American, and Black women, who lose almost $1M in wages. My equal pay plan will end this fundamental unfairness. http://kamalaharris.org/equalpay
TONIGHT: Presidential candidate Senator @KamalaHarris explains why Democrats can get stuff done for America AND investigate Trump at the same time. #LSSC
Over the past few years we’ve seen the amazing spirit of the American people. I know that together we can create a nation where everyone is guaranteed health care, teachers are paid their value, and more.

Russia interfered in the 2016 election. If we don’t do anything to upgrade our election infrastructure, we will leave our nation vulnerable to future attacks. We must embrace hand-marked paper ballots and it’s imperative Congress pass the PAVE Act to protect our elections.
Black mothers across the country are facing a health crisis that is driven in part by implicit bias in our health care system. I re-introduced my Maternal CARE Act to take action to address this issue, and do it with the sense of urgency it deserves. https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2019/05/233384/kamala-harris-maternal-mortality-act-black-women-childbirth-deaths
Approximately one-third of transgender Americans experience homelessness in their lifetime. Today's heartless proposal from the Trump Administration will put them at even greater risk. https://twitter.com/HuffPost/status/1131224789958438912

40% of Americans say they don’t have enough cash to cover a $400 emergency expense. My LIFT Act would deliver some relief by reversing Trump’s trillion-dollar tax scam for big corporations and the top 1% and use that money to give the middle class a tax cut.
The health status and the well-being of Black mothers should concern everyone. Today I re-introduced my Maternal CARE Act to ensure women are listened to in our health care system. https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/22/politics/kamala-harris-racial-disparities-maternal-health-bill/index.html
California’s first openly LGBTQ+ elected official, Harvey Milk, illuminated courage and tenacity. His memory serves as an inspiration to us all to speak up for everyone’s civil rights — even when it’s difficult. Until all of us are equal, none of us are equal. #HarveyMilkDay
Trump has outspent every 2020 Democratic candidate on Facebook advertising — but @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris are catching up. https://bit.ly/2EpOads
@KamalaHarris's plan to close the gender pay gap would hit companies on one of their most prized markers: their annual profits. https://bit.ly/2MaBpd0
If big corporations won’t prioritize equal pay, I’m not afraid to take them on. I've been in those fights before. I’ve taken on big banks, predatory colleges, and big oil. Ensuring women are paid fairly for the work they do is a fight worth having.
This Trump tax scam continues to generate serious consequences for some of our nation’s most vulnerable. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/17/us/politics/college-scholarships-tax-increases.html
When we talk equal pay and the right to choose, we are talking about whether we value women.

As the daughter of a single working mother in a male-dominated field, I know the fight to be treated equally in the workplace has persisted for generations. I have a plan to fix it. https://www.bustle.com/p/kamala-harris-tackles-the-gender-pay-gap-heres-exactly-whats-in-her-plan-17902753
Let's speak this truth: women in America are not being valued, respected, or treated as equal. From draconian abortion bans, to unequal pay, to gross harassment and assault in the workplace, this has to end. https://twitter.com/PadmaLakshmi/status/1130834440794583043
When Black women walk into a clinic or doctor’s office or a hospital, they are not taken as seriously as other women simply because they are Black. This due to racial bias and my Maternal CARE Act will address this problem.
We will fight with everything we have to defend access to reproductive health care.
There’s nothing more powerful than people speaking up for what we all know is right. I stand in solidarity with those across the country to #StopTheBans. We will fight with everything we’ve got to protect a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.
