On World AIDS Day, we remember those who died of HIV/AIDS and honor those whose lives have been saved as a result of research, medications, advocacy, and vigilance. Testing, prevention, care, and treatment save lives every day. Let us expand our efforts and end this pandemic now!
In 2008, the UN designated Nov 25th as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The history of violence against women is a sad story of how women have been brutalized, maimed, and killed. We must all be committed. This must stop.
Herschel Walker no longer wants to be a vampire, now he says he wants to be a werewolf. Herschel, why don't you just try to be a decent human being? Even the werewolves would not welcome you.
My heart goes out to the families and loved ones of those who have been killed and those who have been harmed in Colorado. We must scrutinize those who are seeking gun ownership, and we must strengthen our weak gun laws, to stop this senseless violence.
A salute to all of our Veterans who have served our country. They served our country in order to protect us, and we must keep our promises to provide for their needs, be it housing, education, healthcare, and a basic good quality of life. Best wishes to you and your families!
Our democracy depends on citizen participation. Voting is the greatest form of citizen participation to protect and strengthen our democracy. Today is the last day to vote. VOTE VOTE VOTE!
Halloween is meant to be a fun time! Mimicking, mocking, and costuming, ghosts and goblins. Have fun and be safe!
So happy to hear that Paul Pelosi is recovering well and is expected to be fine. Get well soon Paul.
My friend, Roz Wyman was a highly respected Democratic Party activist and generous fundraiser. She was the 2nd woman & youngest person, at age 22, to serve on the LA City Council. She surely will be recognized in history for her leadership.
Clarence Thomas has abused his powers to freeze the subpoena for Lindsey Graham. These Trump sycophants are doing everything they can to protect each other. In the end, they all need to go to prison. If we allow them to go without punishment, they will destroy our democracy.
The Jan 6th Committee is serious about documenting what took place & who was responsible for the insurrection at our Capitol. I congratulate the Committee on issuing a subpoena to former Pres Trump. He will attempt to avoid appearing, but he will not get away with it.
I am so happy that President Biden issued an executive order forgiving certain student loan debt. All of the harmed students should apply before December 31st, 2023. This will be life-changing for many students who are overburdened with student loan debt.…
My interview with Essence Magazine regarding closing the racial wealth gap is now available on their website.…
The Constitution of the USA ensures the rules for our democracy. The stunning disregard for the Constitution by Trump makes clear the dangers that Trump poses to our democracy. His threat of civil war is more than what any of us should tolerate. It is time to shut him down.
Today marks the first day of #HispanicHeritageMonth! I join in the celebration of the entire Hispanic population, and I am appreciative of the contributions they have made which we all benefit from.
HUD was created as a cabinet-level agency on Sept 9th, 1965. HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities & quality affordable homes for all. As Chairwoman of Finacial Services, I am committed to ensuring that HUD fulfills its tremendous responsibilities.
The Gov of Mississippi declared a state of emergency that will help get Federal Government assistance & the National Guard is assisting with relocation. Your Mississippi Congressman, Rep. Bennie Thompson represents Jackson and beyond. I will stay in touch with Rep. Thompson.
Americans overwhelmingly support universal background checks. Extreme MAGA Republicans may have sided with the gun lobby, but House Democrats will keep working to make universal background checks a reality. #EndGunViolence
Happy Labor Day to all of America’s workers & to those who are seeking work! For every legislator at every level of government, who claims to be a supporter of organized labor, we must fight for a real increase in the minimum wage. America is greatest when the people are working!
This is #WomensEqualityDay, but every day should be Women's Equality Day. I am feeling very strong & I am not about to rest while women's rights are being denied. We are going to fight & protect our rights no matter what right-wing, conservative, sexist, crazies are trying to do.
102 years ago today, the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote, was ratified. Yet now, they are trying to take it away from women and people of color. 19 States have passed new voter suppression laws since 2020. We must resist all efforts to restrict the right to vote!
Thanks to a tipster who alerted the Department of Justice that Trump still had in his possession highly classified documents that he had stolen from the White House, Trump reveals how much he is a danger to our democracy. He must be made accountable!
The Inflation Reduction Act is great. It will improve healthcare, reduce the cost of prescription meds, help with climate change & make corporations pay their fair share of taxes. Unfortunately, it does nothing to deal with the housing crisis in this country. The fight continues.
Today marks the 87th anniversary of Social Security. Social Security is the great public policy that eliminated hunger and despair for senior citizens in this country. Social Security must always be protected!
Pleased about the $15 million in transportation funding for the City of Inglewood.Not happy about the $150 billion for housing removed from the Build Back Better Act, now titled the Inflation Reduction Act. I will keep up the fight to secure safe & affordable housing for everyone
This innovative project will improve access to the City of Inglewood and provide my constituents a world-class transit connection from the Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line to downtown Inglewood and the City’s major sports, entertainment and employment centers.
I am proud to announce that the Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded a $15 million grant to the City of Inglewood to support the groundbreaking Inglewood Transit Connector Project.
1 million fentanyl pills were seized by the DEA from a house in Inglewood CA. When so many families are suffering from economic distress, health issues, & vulnerability to criminal exploitation, we must be committed to stopping drug traffickers from criminalizing our young people
The recent raid by the FBI on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home gives me more confidence that his crimes, possible theft of classified information, and disregard of the rule of law, is being taken seriously. I hope he didn't destroy all evidence. We have got to get him!
1 million fentanyl pills were seized by the DEA from a house in Inglewood CA. When so many families are suffering from economic distress, health issues, & vulnerability to criminal exploration, we must be committed to stopping drug traffickers from criminalizing our young people.
I am so sorry to learn of the tragic accident that caused the deaths of my Republican colleague, Rep. Jackie Walorski, and two staff members, Zachery Potts and Emma Thomson. My condolences and my dearest sympathies go out to their entire families and friends.
My friend Nichelle Nichols has passed. Nichelle was a beautiful & talented actress who played Lt. Uhura in the original Star Trek. Through her acting & service as an ambassador for NASA, Nichelle inspired millions of young people and people of color to aspire for Space careers.
I commemorate the life of 11x NBA Champion, & 1st Black head coach of the NBA, Bill Russell. Bill Russell was one of the greatest athletes to ever grace US sports, & his legacy goes beyond basketball. He was an icon of fearless civil rights activism. He will forever be remembered
The Republican-controlled Supreme Court reversed nearly 50 years of precedent by overturning the constitutional right to abortion. Yesterday, I voted for the Women's Health Protection Act to restore the right to #AbortionAccess nationwide! #WHPA
Great news for the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) which is in my 43rd CD. Through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the airport will receive $50 million to reconstruct and modernize its terminal roadway system, including reconfiguring the Central Terminal Area entrance.
Secretary Buttigieg, Chairwoman Waters, & LA Mayor Garcetti, 3 leaders critical to the development of the K-Line transportation system, cutting the ribbon on the completion of the Crenshaw Station. Inglewood Station is next! Proud achievements for our City!
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” To the white supremacists, that is not so self-evident. Happy Fourth of July everybody.
#BansOffOurBodies Great rally and protest in South Los Angeles, led by Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and joined by Dolores Huerta, @RepJudyChu, Julianne Malveaux, Planned Parenthood, @womensmarch, National Women's Political Caucus, @LADemocrats and many more!
What can we do to protect women? We must all strongly support the Women's Health Protection Act, H.R.3755. This bill codifies Roe v. Wade, and enshrines a Federal right to abortion access and reproductive justice!
We must all work to ensure that congress steps in to codify the EPA's ability to combat climate change through reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enforcing guidelines to conserve our natural resources.
President Biden must leverage his full executive authority to ensure that the EPA continues to keep our air clean, protect public health, and save us from climate disaster.
The Supreme Court's 6-3 decision to restrict the @EPA's ability to regulate emissions from power plants is a destructive setback to our nation’s ability to reduce carbon pollution and fight climate change. This radical SCOTUS will stop at nothing to protect corporate interests.
Great Day! Ketanji Brown Jackson finally sworn in to serve on the United States Supreme Court. Happy Happy Happy!
Learning of the dastardly treatment of migrants who lost their lives at the hands of unconscionable smugglers reminds me of my ancestors who were stacked in ships and brought to The U.S. as slaves; many died. The smugglers responsible for this atrocity must be brought to justice!
Fifty-one human beings were found dead, stacked in the back of a truck by smugglers with absolutely no regard for life, in pursuit of a dollar. It is so very disturbing! These murderers must pay for what they have done.
Trump and his criminal allies are being revealed for the crimes that they have been committing. What will it take for those who embrace Trump to realize they are blindly following a dishonorable traitor to our country?
As a Member of Congress, I'm proud to have voted to protect abortion access. Today's SCOTUS decision makes it even more clear: we need federal protections for reproductive health. I am committed to continuing this FIGHT: in Congress, in the streets, and at the Ballot Box!

This is only the beginning of an extreme Republican agenda to take away our personal freedoms, from abortion to contraception, to marriage equality to personal safety. #WeWontGoBack!
