When I was the First Lady of Arkansas one of the things I was most proud of is a school in Hot Springs I helped start, the @ARMathSciArts. I’m back in Hot Springs today to deliver the commencement address to the Class of 2019. Tune in!
Thank you for this comedy with purpose, @jordanklepper. I'm so heartened by the activists, educators, and faith leaders who stand up for the rights of undocumented students.
"Education, not segregation."
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
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. washingtonpost.com/climate-enviro…
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. twitter.com/PPFA/status/11…
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.
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.
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.
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.

While Trump & supporters at rally yesterday, reacted by laughing when someone shouted about shooting immigrants at the border, this Hispanic boy lay dead after losing his life trying to save others from a shooter.
Did anyone say his name?
He is Kendrick Castillo, American hero.
I'm excited to join my old friends and colleagues Jake Sullivan and @Benjamin05055 at Dartmouth's Dickey Center for International Understanding this afternoon. You can watch our conversation live here: youtube.com/watch?v=54ptkh…
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. twitter.com/CBSNews/status…
“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: nytimes.com/2019/05/03/opi…
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. washingtonpost.com/politics/flori…
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.
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:
At the @ClintonFdn, I'm inspired every day by the people we work with around the world. Looking forward sharing some of their inspiring stories with our new podcast, "Why am I telling you this?" Learn more here: bustle.com/p/bill-chelsea…
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. nytimes.com/2019/05/04/us/…
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. twitter.com/latinovictoryu…
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. nytimes.com/2019/05/06/cli…
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.
