Sprout Social : Native women face one of the largest wage gaps in the US, having to work 9 additional months just to get paid what their white male counterparts got paid last year. On #NativeWomensEqualPay Day, I'm calling on the Senate to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Sprout Social : Suicide is personal for me—my sister took her own life. Sadly, too many families also know the pain of losing a loved one to suicide.

September is #SuicidePreventionMonth. It's a time to be there for our loved ones and spread awareness about resources. You're not alone. twitter.com/afspnational/s…

iPhone : The cost of insulin DOUBLED in just 4 years & American families are suffering because of it. No one should have to choose between paying for life-saving drugs & keeping a roof over their heads. Dems introduced legislation to tackle this problem & we’ll work hard to get it passed.

Sprout Social : We must act NOW on the #ClimateCrisis.

House Democrats are fighting for a better tomorrow. Our children deserve it. #YouthClimateStrike

Sprout Social : Refusing to help families in need is cruel and un-American.

House Democrats are working to ensure EVERY person has the opportunity to seek their American dream—no matter where they come from. #ForThePeople

Sprout Social : House Democrats are fighting to #LowerDrugCosts because no American should have to choose between putting food on the table and taking life-saving prescription medication. #ForThePeople

Sprout Social : We’ve all heard the stories. People are forced to cut their pills in half or choose between their medicine or dinner. The pharmaceutical companies have gamed the system and it’s time they’re held accountable.

This must be done #ForThePeople.

Sprout Social : ICYMI: I joined more than 100 of my fellow House Democrats in urging @RealDonaldTrump to remain in the Paris Agreement and prioritize our environment in #NAFTA 2.0. Climate change knows no borders and we must use foreign and trade policies to reverse our climate death spiral. twitter.com/RepKatieHill/s…

Sprout Social : For years, I’ve fought to bring an end to forced arbitration that silences victims of harassment & discrimination. Today, we passed the #FAIRAct to create safer workplaces & root out the bad actors who have been shielded by institutional protections. The time for justice is NOW.

Sprout Social : The Trump administration is threatening the children of our military families and stealing money from our troops for “national security.” Makes sense. 👀

House Democrats will ALWAYS fight for our nation’s bravest.

Sprout Social : Trump's proposed cuts to SNAP benefits would cut off food aid for 3.6 million Americans. That's not just morally wrong, it's unlawful: Trump doesn't have authority to make these categorical changes & he's directly contradicting the congressionally passed intent of the Farm Bill.

iPhone : Latino Americans are teachers, soldiers, marchers, and leaders. But most importantly, we are members of this American family – and we have been all along. #HispanicHeritageMonth

Sprout Social : An average of one mass shooting happens every single day in this country.

Every.

Single.

Day.

These families are heroes in the movement to end gun violence. Thank you to Mike Song for coming in today #EnoughIsEnough

Sprout Social : We have a lot to smile about: We get to come to work every day and fight #ForThePeople. 🇺🇸 twitter.com/billclarkphoto…

Sprout Social : This #SuicidePreventionMonth, House Veterans Affairs and the #WomenVetsTaskForce pledge to #BeThere for our 2 million women veterans. No man left behind, no woman left behind.
