We need to fight CHEAP patriotism with DEEP patriotism. There’s a chasm between the founding reality of America and the founding dream of America. It's up to every generation of Americans to work hard to close the gap between the two. #IndependenceDay youtu.be/H3PzzPpGczw
If #SCOTUS can overrule long standing rights, then whose rights are next? The court should be fair & impartial. But if the umpire won’t be fair, then why should the players be fair? That's not how you run a Democratic Republic. The court running amok scares people.
So you're mad that somebody's going to make you wear a mask, but you're going to make somebody else have a baby. It’s just really hard to get my head around some of the contradictions here.
Earlier this month, I was proud to announce a national campaign @OpptyatWork & @AdCouncil are launching to raise awareness of 70M+ U.S. workers Skilled Through Alternative Routes vs. bachelor's degree—STARs—& the “Paper Ceiling” barriers they face. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skilled_t… 1/5

#AWFUL As a practical matter, #SCOTUS just crippled US government’s ability to address runaway #climate catastrophe—until & unless Congress acts. We must find & pass bipartisan climate solutions. I’m counting on @GreenForAll⁩ to help find a way forward. cnn.com/2022/06/30/pol…
A woman who looks like my mother, sister & daughters just took her seat on the highest court. That’s more than history; it’s HOPE. The degree of decency, order & good sense in that building is about to take a quantum leap. #KetanjiBrownJackson #SCOTUS edition.cnn.com/politics/live-…

Believe in your power to change lives! That's what our #EmpathyNetwork of justice impacted leaders did when they worked w/ Democrats, Republicans, & President Trump to pass the First Step Act to help thousands come home. Now the Court has paved the way for thousands more! twitter.com/ReutersLegal/s…

This must be the most pro-death “pro-life” Supreme Court in history. More guns, more death penalty — and more babies? I guess with all the killing, we’re going to need more people? Is that the rationale? Just awful. #Roe #abortion

.@VanJones68: “‘Latinx’? I’ve never met a Latinx. I’ve never met a ‘BIPOC’ … All this weird stuff … Nobody talks that way at the nail salon or barbershop.”

@AndyGrewal @madrid_mike @VanJones68 Agree 100%! I asked my South TX Hispanic wife what Latinx meant … she has no idea.

@george22443 @VegasUte @NickyFrank30 @AndyGrewal @VanJones68 Ex wife is Nicaraguan. Can confirm. Dems are basically on a path to losing 80% of Latinos. Insane platform & narratives.

@wwahammy @AirJlb @VanJones68 We are losing them, sorry but Van is right about that. Trust me , as a liberal myself, i don't want this to be true, but it is. We need to stick to the kitchen table issues that are popular and once again become a big tent party and not just the college kid party

.@VanJones68 offers an important cautionary note about an element of liberal elitism in the Democratic Party that is out of sync with the vast number of Americans of ALL backgrounds. Worth a listen. twitter.com/DailyCaller/st…

When it comes to gun violence in urban areas, the Black community too often feels abandoned and ignored. The conversation about gun violence legislation needs to center our communities in this debate. ⬇️ READ THIS ⬇️ (cc: @PastorCarlDay) cnn.com/2022/06/07/opi…
Great article on @CNN by @PastorCarlDay and @VanJones68 on gun violence in Philly. We should focus on stopping mass shootings, yes, but we should also focus on ending the daily violence that terrorizes our most vulnerable communities. cnn.com/2022/06/07/opi…

As I continue to fight the issues of Gun Violence within our communities, I will see to it that our voices aren’t drowned out in a national discussion that should be given attention & resources Shoutout to @VanJones68 @CNNOpinion for allowing me to write-> cnn.com/2022/06/07/opi…

At Dream Corps, we focus on what we know we can achieve. Issues like gun violence can make common ground seem impossible, but as our founder @VanJones68 & @PastorCarlDay write, there are numerous ways we can come together to make a difference & save lives cnn.com/2022/06/07/opi…

This week, I invited Congresswoman @KarenBassLA to #UncommonGround to discuss her time in Congress and her big goals and tangible plans for Los Angeles as she runs for Mayor. Tune in to #UncommonGround now wherever you get your podcasts.
On the #UncommonGround podcast, we aim to find common ground across lines of difference. Now, it's one thing to talk to someone who you disagree with on a single issue, but what about talking to someone who's beliefs negate your very identity as a human being...like a KKK member?
