Moms know how to get things done, and we need more of them in Congress. We are so excited to announce our support for 7 fantastic mamas who bring the needs of women, children, and families with them to Congress and truly represent us. #ElectThisMama

Whether serving in combat, commanding my own unit or having my two beautiful girls through IVF—I owe so much of my life to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Remembering her and all we must do to protect her legacy today.
The Freedom to Vote Act just introduced in the Senate would strengthen our democracy by making it easier for people to vote and harder for politicians and special interests to drown out the voices of ordinary Americans. I support it, and every Senator should do the same.

Every Senator should support the Freedom to Vote Act to defend our democracy, get dark money out of politics and protect every American's right to vote. There's not a moment to lose.
The Freedom to Vote Act will set basic national standards to make sure all Americans can cast their ballots in the way that works best for them, regardless of what zip code they live in. We can protect the right to vote and this is how we’ll get it done.

This isn’t a red or blue issue—it’s a lifeline for all Americans. Yet, not a single Republican voted for it. twitter.com/Reuters/status…
Republicans spent years trying to tear down the Affordable Care Act. Now, nearly 3 million more Americans are covered thanks to President Biden's special enrollment period. Once again—elections matter.
¡Feliz Mes de la Herencia Hispana! Who we are as a nation today would not be possible without Latinx and Hispanic leaders, activists and voices that push us forward. As we celebrate #HispanicHeritageMonth, let's keep up our work to build a better, more equitable future for all.
Wishing Jewish communities across the country and around the world a peaceful, easy and meaningful fast as they reflect and start anew this Yom Kippur.
Congratulations, @LaphonzaB—the first mom and woman of color to lead @emilyslist. At such a pivotal time for women's rights, I look forward to continuing our work to elect more pro-choice, Democratic women to defend Roe, protect reproductive freedom and empower women everywhere. twitter.com/emilyslist/sta…
We gave our Afghan allies America's word. Many aided our troops in their country for two decades at great risk to their safety and their families. In exchange, we promised we'd take care of them. We must keep our word. No matter what it takes.
By allowing one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the country to go into effect, the Supreme Court turned its back on 50 years of precedent. Now, Congress must take matters into their own hands and codify Roe.
On the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack on our nation, we remember the loved ones we lost too soon, the heroism of our first responders and servicemembers as well as the ways we can honor their lives in acts of service to each other. #NeverForget
On #WorldSuicidePreventionDay, I'm thinking of the Veterans we've lost to suicide. In honor of all those who serve, we must leave no stone unturned to ensure our nation's heroes are better supported, including expanding mental health services & giving them the care they deserve.
If you're looking for a way to support our incoming Afghan allies and their families, @LIRSorg helps provide them with food, housing assistance, clothes and other basic needs as they settle into their new home. Please retweet and consider a donation�secure.actblue.com/donate/tde-em-…x
The Texas abortion law goes against decades-long precedent set by Roe v. Wade. It's blatantly unconstitutional—and I'm glad Attorney General Garland is filing this suit to defend the right to choose. twitter.com/nowthisnews/st…
Six weeks is before many even know they are pregnant in the first place. That's how we know this has nothing to do with protecting the sanctity of life and everything to do with controlling women's bodies. twitter.com/therecount/sta…
Sen. @TammyDuckworth believes in a democracy that works for the people, not for special interests and big corporations, so we’re proud to announce our endorsement in her race for re-election in Illinois. Sen. Duckworth will keep fighting to hand our democracy back to the people.

"Cancer is the word all of us fear," but thankfully my friend @amyklobuchar is as tough as they come. Amy, wishing you and your family well, and thank you for reminding us all that early detection saves lives. twitter.com/amyklobuchar/s…
The majority of survivors are victimized by people they know. So when he says the state will "eliminate rape," we know that's about as likely as seeing pigs fly. twitter.com/KXAN_News/stat…
Important reminder: the decision to get vaccinated is far from just a personal choice. In reality, it means fewer chances for people getting the life-saving care they need because our hospitals are overwhelmed by unvaccinated patients. twitter.com/CNN/status/143…
No, voter suppression is now law in the state of Texas. Congress must stop this state-by-state Republican affront on our democracy by passing federal voting rights legislation immediately. twitter.com/therecount/sta…
L'Shana Tova! Wishing all who are celebrating in Illinois and everywhere a very happy and sweet #RoshHashanah
To all of the hardworking Americans and unions who power our country—happy Labor Day! The least we could do to honor all of their work is pass paid leave, equal pay for equal work and more to support and empower working families.
Congratulations on your beautiful new family! Welcome to parenthood, @PeteButtigieg and @Chasten. twitter.com/PeteButtigieg/…
Democrats' expanded Child Tax Credit is working. Now, just imagine how many more kids we could lift out of poverty if we made these payments permanent. businessinsider.com/child-tax-cred…
The Supreme Court might be willing to sit by and let one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the country go into effect today—but I’m not. Our work to defend and expand Roe v. Wade has only just begun. twitter.com/AP/status/1432…
Every American deserves a Senator that will do everything in their power to protect their right to vote.
Clean water is a right. With my Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act fully authorized in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, we'll work to secure that right for every family one lead pipe removed at a time.
The critical work and support provided by Peoria's 182nd Airlift Wing is never lost on me. So long as I represent Illinois in the U.S. Senate, the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces can trust that they will always have a voice in Washington.
.@SenDuckworth on Illinois's green economy: "We created a hundred thousand new jobs in the wind industry over 10 years alone. We are leading the nation when it comes to bio-fuels."

The Pfizer vaccine is now FDA-approved! Yet another reason to get vaccinated. For you, your loved ones and our community—not only is it the safe thing to do, but the right thing to do so we can beat this pandemic once and for all. twitter.com/nytimes/status…
There is nothing political about getting vaccinated. There is nothing political about wearing a mask. There is nothing political about saving lives.
Wishing my friend Rev. Jesse Jackson and his wife a full and speedy recovery. twitter.com/NPR/status/142…

As someone who grew up on food stamps, I know exactly what this permanent increase means to the families who depend on it: a little fuller stomach and a little greater peace of mind to get through the day. npr.org/2021/08/17/102…
Earlier this month, my colleagues and I on both sides of the aisle called on the Biden Administration to cancel this mountain of student debt and lift this financial burden off the shoulders of Americans with disabilities. I’m grateful they acted swiftly. forbes.com/sites/zackfrie…
101 years ago, ratifying the #19thAmendment gave some women the right to vote—but left out women of color. Now, Republicans are working to pass hundreds of bills aimed to block voters of color out of our elections. Enough. Our democracy is stronger when everyone participates.
Congratulations @PeteButtigieg and @Chasten! Being a parent is the greatest gift. Sending my best as you welcome the newest little addition to your family. twitter.com/PeteButtigieg/…
I’ve been so proud to work with @JBPritzker and the @ILAFLCIO to stand up for working people across our state to protect and expand good-paying union jobs right here in Illinois. Together, we can elect Democrats up and down the ballot. Sign up to join us: JBPritzker.com/Volunteer

What a great time at the Illinois State Fair! From champion livestock to a life-sized butter cow sculpture and the best ice cream you'll ever taste—this is an Illinois tradition you won't want to miss.🎡G
This is what #BudBilliken is all about: celebration and community! Thanks to all the volunteers who joined us for this historic Chicago tradition and everyone who worked so hard to make this parade happen as we head back to school.

How it felt to march with Governor @JBPritzker and @JulianaforLG in the #BudBilliken parade today👇V
Horrific. After Trump spewed lies and we saw a spike in AANHPI hate crimes, the AANHPI community is still suffering. Nearly 10,000 anti-AANHPI hate incidents have been reported to @StopAAPIHate since March 2020. We're not the "other." Enough. twitter.com/politico/statu…

Historic. Proud to cast my vote for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, which: ✅Fully authorizes my Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act to help secure clean water for all, ✅Includes my ASAP Act to help bring our transit systems up to ADA standards. twitter.com/frankthorp/sta…
