iPhone : As DA of San Francisco, George Gascón led fights to reform the Three Strikes Law & get people convicted of nonviolent offenses greater opportunities to get their lives back on track. I know he’ll work every day as DA of LA County to demand accountability from our justice system.

Twitter Web Client : Today in 1942, FDR signed the executive order that led to the internment of approximately 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry. We can’t erase this shameful part of our nation’s history—but I co-sponsored a bill last year to prevent atrocities like this from ever happening again.

Sprout Social : Every day we fail to address the disparities in maternal mortality for Black women, we are failing our families. Every day we don’t confront the persistent biases in our medical system, a mother could die. It’s urgent we pass my Maternal CARE Act in the Senate.

Sprout Social : Just shameful. The Trump administration continues to roll back environmental protections so special interests can profit—at the expense of our health.

Sprout Social : Today would have been Toni Morrison's 89th birthday. Thinking of the literary icon's powerful words, "If you find a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."

Her voice will continue to inspire generations. Go write your story.

Sprout Social : U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris’ support holds a special place for me. As one of the few Black female district attorneys, shes a source of inspiration and has helped paved the way for implementing reform in the criminal justice system.

Sprout Social : Outraged this happened to Jaylan. But sadly, we know experiences like his happens every day in America. We need stronger police and prosecutor accountability to root out and prevent abuses.

Sprout Social : Tomorrow is the last day to register to vote in California’s primary. Go to registertovote.ca.gov now to make sure you can cast your ballot.

Sprout Social : A budget is a reflection of our values. Trump proposed cuts to Medicaid, student loan assistance, Social Security Disability Insurance, medical research, nutrition assistance, and more—but included an additional $2 billion for his useless wall. It’s downright heartless.

Sprout Social : We’re traumatizing generations of students because Republican members of Congress would rather do a favor for the NRA than act to end the gun violence epidemic.

Sprout Social : Gwen Ifill was the first Black woman to moderate a vice-presidential debate, a leader on PBS’ Washington Week in Review, and a trailblazer in journalism. She deserves to be honored this month and every month. #BlackHistoryMonth

Sprout Social : This week my colleagues and I introduced the Gun Records Restoration and Preservation Act. Besides helping keep our communities safe, this bill would allow researchers to study gun violence and its impact for the first time. It’s critical we act.

Sprout Social : Trump and his administration continue to chip away at protections for our public lands. But we won’t let that happen without a fight.

Earlier this week my three bills to protect over 1 million acres of California lands passed in the House. It’s now on the Senate to do the same.

Sprout Social : Frederick Douglass once said, “if there is no struggle, there is no progress.” As we mark the day he chose as his birthday, we must remember his words and the struggle he—and so many others—endured. Our fight for justice continues.

Sprout Social : Stephen Miller’s white supremacist and anti-immigrant ideology has been the driving force behind some of this administration’s cruelest policies. I introduced a resolution in the Senate yesterday calling for his immediate removal from the White House.

Sprout Social : From Parkland to Northern Illinois University, my heart grieves for the communities and survivors whose lives were forever changed those fateful Valentine’s Days. For our students’ sake, we need reasonable gun safety reforms. Now.

Sprout Social : With the Republican-controlled Senate refusing to act on gun violence, parents and gun-safety groups across the country are making change at the local level.

Sprout Social : Attorney General Barr thinks of himself as Trump’s personal lawyer instead of the people’s lawyer. It’s imperative that the Senate Judiciary Committee put him under oath and get to the bottom of improper political interference at the DOJ.
