This is the year of Black women, girls and femmes choosing themselves and their mental health. I love it here.

I’m NOT stopping! I’m going to fight until my last breath in order to protect these renters and these small landlords. Extend the #EvictionMoratorium!

You’re as real as they come. Shame on those in Congress who don’t care about ensuring people have a roof over their heads in the middle of a deadly pandemic. twitter.com/CoriBush/statu…

It's not a coincidence or accident that we've seen an onslaught of anti-Black policies and harsh punishments leading up to the #Olympics. It's a blatant attempt to curtail progress toward equity in sports and undermine the long history of sports activism. blavity.com/why-the-tokyo-…

On Cuba: Our solidarity continues...
His life was stolen by law enforcement. And, once again, they don’t want to own up to it. Elevate his name #AndrewJosephIII as his family continues their fight. Sign our petition calling for an end to qualified immunity—the shield police continue to hide behind.
In 2014, Andrew was profiled, harassed, searched, unjustly detained and held by police while attending the Florida State Fair. No attempt was made to contact his family. Instead, he was removed from the grounds and left on the side of a busy highway. He was killed by a motorist.
Qualified immunity is being used to shield police responsible for the death of 14-year-old #AndrewJosephIII from accountability. His family has been seeking answers and accountability for 7 years.
YESSS TO THIS 👑 Birthday love to the congresswoman@CoriBushh 🎉�twitter.com/coribush/statu…G8bn

#BlackLivesMatter is more than a love letter. And that’s thanks to y’all. Happy 8 year anniversary, family. To the generations that came before us, and those we have yet to meet... #BLMAnniversary
8 years ago today, #BlackLivesMatter was put into the digital world. After generations of rage, pain, love, and abolitionists. We don't just want Black lives to matter. We want to thrive...To 8 years of #BLM—thank you family. #BLMAnniversary

This is precisely the kind of public safety intervention The People’s Response Act will support and scale. It’s time we respond to crises with adequate care and save lives. twitter.com/nbcnews/status…

After a Supreme Court ruling, collegiate athletes AS OF TODAY can profit from their likeness. Black athletes in particular have made their schools & the @NCAA millions of dollars w/o proper compensation for too long. Black athletes are #NotNCAAProperty Excited to see y’all thrive twitter.com/geo_baker_1/st…
BREAKING: @RepMondaire is now a co-sponsor of the #PeoplesResponseAct We love to see it 👏�twitter.com/RepMondaire/st…kz
Black folks organizing Black communities will always pose a threat to white supremacy. Black led orgs are consistently attacked and intimidated. Remember: #ProtectBlackLeaders twitter.com/ikaylareed/sta…
#SafetyIs investing in Black communities that have been underserved, underfunded, & under attack. It's about prevention, not policing. Healing, not incarceration. We can transform how communities view safety 👉🏿Th#PeoplesResponseActct. RT with your vision of safety usin#SafetyIsIPt
Trained, unarmed mental health professionals should respond to mental health emergencies.

EXCLUSIVE: I spoke with Rep. @CoriBush about the #PeoplesResponseAct This bill would create a division within the DHHS to fund community-led approaches to public safety and call on first respond responders instead of police in mental health emergencies. nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/re…

The #PeoplesResponseAct 🖤 Invests in inclusive holistic & proven approaches to community safety 💛 Creates a federal, unarmed health responders unit 🖤 Funds local & state governments & community-led orgs to deliver community-based public safety servicvBg

Public safety is a public health issue. It’s not a policing issue, it’s a people issue. When our communities are hurting, we deserve a response that keeps us safe. We deserve a new system. We deserve investment. We deserve the #PeoplesResponse Act twitter.com/RepCori/status…
We hope that the closing of this chapter provides some relief for his family. May this remind us of the need for real justice in George’s name & those whose lives have been stolen by police violence. To find out how you can be in solidarity, visit @GFMFoundation
Accountability in the form of convictions and prison sentences is not justice. Justice would be that our Brother George Floyd were still here to raise his daughter, love his family, and live out his life to its fullest potential.
Yesterday, Biden delivered an address on gun violence. He suggested investing in more police would reduce this. Tell that to the families of the people in our communities who have been shot & killed by police. Gun violence by law enforcement is still gun violence. #End1033
As we celebrate Juneteenth, let’s make a collective commitment to Black freedom and liberation. Let’s start by investing in a new era of public safety, rooted in healing and care ❤️🖤💚 My op-edusatoday.com/story/opinion/…RD

The "War on Drugs" started 50 years ago today. It's in fact been a War on People. My colleagues and I have a plan to put an end to this disastrous policy. Today, we introduced the #DrugPolicyReform Act [A thread] watsoncoleman.house.gov/uploadedfiles/…

Lawmakers & @JoeBiden sure moved quickly to make #Juneteenth a federal holiday. Need them to pick up the pace to pass #HR40 and run us our #Reparations.

Courts are closed tomorrow for Juneteenth. My incarcerated clients, all of whom are black men, will remain in jail to celebrate the emancipation of slaves. This is America.

Yeah but do this for radical Black policy. Start by passing HB 40. We won’t be bamboozled by political theater... twitter.com/abc/status/140…
