I am in a state of shock. My dear friend, Jackie Avant, was murdered. This kind and compassionate woman, was a friend to so many and we simply cannot accept what has happened to her. My condolences to Clarence, Alex and Nicole. We mourn with you. Love, Maxine and Sidney.
My dear friend and colleague Carrie Meek has passed away. I am recalling the great times we had together. Carrie was a wonderful public servant, she will be sorely missed. All my love, Rest In Peace Carrie.
Colin Powell served as a four-star Army general, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, & Secretary of State. He was a highly accomplished individual who made so many people in this country proud, especially those of us in the Black community. May he rest in peace.
I have been hacked and my Twitter account has been erased. I know who has done this. I will take care of this. M Waters.
Congratulations to Michael Jordan for his ownership and promotion of diversity and inclusion in NASCAR, and congratulations to @BubbaWallace for his recent NASCAR victory. Keep competing and keep fighting!
Girls all over the world are fighting for respect, education, and a decent quality of life. In Afghanistan, the Taliban has doubled down on destroying the rights of women & girls, including education. We stand in solidarity with the women & girls struggling for their rights.
To the corporate media. Why do you allow Trump to undermine our democracy, by spreading and promoting his election lies?
We can't be serious about honoring the contributions of Hispanic Americans unless and until we fix immigration reform, and Congress preserves DACA. #HispanicHeritageMonth
If you don’t have a decent home to lay your head in, take a bath, eat a meal with family and friends, a floor to get on your knees in prayer and a neighbor to bike with, you don’t live in America. Housing. Is. Everything.
When observing the treatment of Haitians being chased by border patrol cowboys on horses, I said “I’m pissed” during a press conference! Definition of pissed: mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore!
Biden finally spoke up about the horrendous mistreatment of Haitians at the border. This admin owes us answers as to how & when it will stop the deportations & allow Haitians their legal right to petition for entry into the U.S. We cannot sweep this under the rug! We want action!
Leave women alone! The Texas legislature voted to interfere with a woman’s right to choose & they’re rewarding vigilantes for coming after women & their doctors. Today, I voted to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act. Governor Abbott, this one’s for you! #LeaveWomenAlone
Haitians fleeing violence & the lack of a credible government in Haiti are being treated like animals. U.S. government cowboys on horses used whips on Haitians as they sought refuge. Why are we following the Trump policies? This horrendous treatment of Haitians must STOP NOW.
My dear friend, Archbishop Carl Bean, the founder of Minority AIDS Project LA & a leader who helped awaken America to the AIDS pandemic, has passed. We worked together to initiate minority AIDS funding in the federal budget that has helped save countless lives. RIP my friend.
Celebrating Labor Day? Let’s celebrate by using our collective influence to make work pay livable wages to every worker. No less than $20 per hour, paid leave, unemployment insurance, healthcare, pension plans, and RESPECT!
The Supreme Court's FAILURE to stop Texas' attack on women's reproductive rights is a slap in the face & if legislators in Texas think women will abide by this disgusting law, they've got another thing coming. We aren't your objects & we won't be silenced. Our bodies, our choice!
My heart breaks for the families of the service members & Afghans we lost in today’s attack in Kabul. While we’re committed to evacuating all Americans, we can’t trust the Taliban or allow ISIS to take the lives of our soldiers. They must be held to account. Period.
President Biden is committed to getting all Americans who want to get out of Afghanistan, out. There are those who doubt him… I don’t! We got over 21,000 people out yesterday and the President is going to see to it the others are evacuated in a matter of days! Keep the faith!
It’s 5:55. We’re on the floor of Congress voting on the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. The Republicans are mouthing support for voter suppression in mostly Black districts. Democrats are going to beat them today, pass John’s bill, & take up the fight in the Senate!
With Haiti dealing with the aftermath of this earthquake, I ask the people of our country to stand with Haiti and do everything possible to make sure there is food, water, and vaccines at this very difficult time. The people of Haiti are in my prayers.
I am devastated by the news that Haiti has been hit by a 7.2 earthquake. At a time when Haiti is without an organized government and suffering greatly from COVID-19, the damage is unspeakable. We must do everything we can to get humanitarian support to Haiti now!
Join @RepMaxineWaters, families and me live for a press conference on the Biden #ChildTaxCredit in Los Angeles.…

Fighting to insist states & cities do a much better job with the $46.6 BILLION we sent to them for rental assistance. Repeating my tweet from July 31, I’m going to fight until my last breath to protect the renters & the landlords - the small landlords in particular!
One of the greatest labor leaders in the country has died. Trumka was not only a friend to me & so many others who have fought for years to support organized labor & the ability to protect working people, but he was a forceful, unapologetic voice that resonated around the world.
So proud of @Simone_Biles who has displayed courage, confidence, & extraordinary talent! Some have said our young people aren't using all of their God-given intellect & talent for success, but they're wrong! It doesn't get any better than what Simone has shown us. You go, girl!
My colleagues & I just accomplished something life changing for families & children who were facing eviction. The CDC’s extension of the moratorium is a temporary solution, but we’ll keep working so everyone has a roof over their head. Emergency rental $$ must get out ASAP!
The Supreme Court DID NOT rule on or even take up the case on the legality of the CDC eviction moratorium. Every minute wasted means another family could be forced onto the streets. Biden, #ExtendTheMoratorium now!
It’s late, but I won’t rest while we face an #EvictionEmergency! I just sent a letter to @SpeakerPelosi standing with her in our demand that Biden immediately direct the CDC to extend the eviction moratorium. This isn’t just a moral imperative, it’s a public health imperative!
I don't buy that the CDC can't extend the eviction moratorium - something it has already done in the past! Who is going to stop them? Who is going to penalize them? There is no official ruling saying that they cannot extend this moratorium. C'mon CDC - have a heart! Just do it!
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!
This is an EMERGENCY❗ The #EvictionMoratorium ENDS TOMORROW❗ Chairwoman @RepMaxineWaters testifies before @RulesDemocrats on her bill #HR4791, which would keep hundreds of thousands of ppl off the streets by extending the eviction moratorium until the end of Dec.

I am leading the effort to protect renters. The eviction moratorium ends in TWO DAYS! I'm pulling out all the stops right now in Congress to STOP people from being evicted from their homes! The House MUST pass my bill to extend the eviction moratorium. I am in it to win it!
My district includes Los Angeles International Airport, Space X, Loyola University, & Maxine Waters Employment Prep Center. I’m fighting for children, veterans, seniors, hardworking people & resisting police abuse. I’m legislating to end homelessness in this country. Thank you!…
It is well known by people who follow my career that I exposed LAPD Chief Daryl Gates on his police force’s use of the chokehold. I’m not new to this, I’m true to this! I’m proud of the reputation I have for fighting for my district!…
New Attorney General. Biden Administration. Time for Action! Today, I sent a letter requesting the Biden Administration investigate the Executioners Gang in the L.A. Sheriff’s Department. A sheriff gangsta can't stop a street gangsta! The time to act is now.
Today is #NelsonMandelaDay! Had he lived, he would be 103 yrs old. As a legislator in California, I was able to have a bill signed that divested Calif. pension funds from corporations doing business in South Africa. We got Mandela released from prison & ended apartheid!
Today, I'm in San Diego with a Congressional delegation led by @SpeakerPelosi for the christening of the U.S. Naval Ship John Lewis. There will be many memorials and honors that will be given to him because of his tremendous contributions to the world! What a man, what a life.
Enough talk about homelessness and a lack of affordable housing! Now is the time to do something about it. Housing IS Infrastructure and there should be no infrastructure bill without it. Are you with me? #HousingIsInfrastructure
The governor of Texas should think twice about wanting to arrest legally elected officials chosen by the people to represent them in the Texas legislature. This goes beyond undermining our democracy. This is tantamount to the destruction of our democratic processes!
Democrats are fighting back! I am standing with the Texas Democrats who came to Washington, DC in order to stop Republicans from passing voter suppression laws! As democracy hangs in the balance, they are showing TRUE leadership. I am with them! We will fight back!
GREAT News! A new #ChildTaxCredit program helping to end child poverty. Starting July 15: $250-$300 per child (depending on age) per month! The greatest public policy ever developed on behalf of our children in this country! Have questions? Go to:!
My statement on the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse of Haiti:
Further, the Dec. of Ind. says we hold these truths to be "self-evident"... yet: - 17 states have enacted voter suppression laws - Supreme Court gutted Sec. 5 of the Voting Rights Act - George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice Need I say more? #July4
July 4th... & so, the Declaration of Independence says all men are created equal. Equal to what? What men? Only white men? Isn't it something that they wrote this in 1776 when African Americans were enslaved? They weren't thinking about us then, but we're thinking about us now!
I was in Tulsa commemorating 100 years since the Tulsa race massacre. If there is any misunderstanding about why reparations are needed, you can't have a better example than the massacre that took lives & burned down Black businesses. Don't you think reparations are fair enough?
Republicans are brazenly sweeping the January 6 insurrection under the rug and have no shame in attacking our right to vote! We need to take action & do it NOW. Investigate Trump & his campaign for January 6, end the filibuster, & save our democracy. History is on OUR side!

Senate Republicans who claim to be such patriots just blocked debate on the #ForThePeopleAct, a bill that would help protect our right to vote. What the hell?!? Republicans across the U.S. are doing all they can to stay in power & it's clear: if they can't win, they WILL cheat!
