“A problem not seen is a problem not fixed. We must raise awareness and tackle the ongoing epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous women. My administration will launch an unprecedented initiative to collect data, empower Tribal Nations, and address this crisis. #NativeVote2020”
“Another question: Dimon and the Business Roundtable have been busy lobbying for NAFTA 2.0. Will they change their tune now and back American workers and unions who are fighting for a better agreement?”
“The CFPB student loan ombudsman is supposed to protect students from getting cheated. But the Trump administration’s pick for the job is an executive at a student loan servicer that got over 9,000 complaints from borrowers. In my administration, the CFPB will work for the people.
“Yesterday, I talked with @BlackChurchPac about how the Black maternal mortality crisis is threatening the lives of Black women. I’m way past “Let’s raise awareness about this problem.” We have to do something about it. "
“I took on giant banks, and I beat them. I took on Wall Street C.E.O.s, and I beat them. I took on a popular Republican incumbent senator, and I beat him. When we fight, we win—and I’m not afraid of a fight.”
“The Line 3 pipeline would threaten Minnesota’s public waters, lands, and agricultural areas important to several Tribal Nations. I’m with @MN_350 and Minnesota organizers fighting to #StopLine3 and protect our environment.”
“My plans aren’t just lists of policy ideas—they’re a statement of my values. Thank you to @blackchurchpac for inviting me to talk about how we can make big, structural change together.”
The story of America’s mistreatment of American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians is a long and painful one, rooted in centuries of discrimination, neglect, greed, and violence. Tribal Nations robbed of more than a billion acres of land. Resources seized and sacred sites desecrated. Native languages and religions suppressed. Children literally stolen from communities in an effort to eradicate entire cultures. Native history is American history — and we must be honest about our government’s responsibility in perpetuating these injustices for centuries.
“When tribal concerns have conflicted with corporate profits or resource extraction, tribes lose. This has to change. When I’m president, energy projects that impact Indian Country won’t proceed without consent. That means revoking Trump’s KeystoneXL and DAPL permits.”
“Funding critical programs for Indian Country isn't optional. It's required to fulfill the United States’ trust and treaty obligations. So @Deb4CongressNM and I have teamed up on writing a bill to ensure predictable, guaranteed funding to Tribal Nations and indigenous peoples.”
“Right-wing courts have ruled that religious freedom laws allow corporations to deny employees birth control, but don’t protect tribes that object to dumping sewage water on sacred sites. Absurd. Congress should pass a new law protecting tribal religious interests in sacred sites.”
“This is a crucial moment in the fight for workers in this country, and it’s time for us to show whose side we’re on. All Democrats need to stand up and say—without dodging or weaving—we support AB 5 and back full employee status for gig workers.
“Last month, the FTC tweeted and advertised that the nearly 150 million Americans who had their data exposed in the @Equifax breach were eligible for $125 each in compensation. Now they’re saying, “Just kidding!” I’m demanding answers.
“Israel doesn't advance its case as a tolerant democracy or unwavering US ally by barring elected members of Congress from visiting because of their political views. This would be a shameful, unprecedented move. I urge Israel’s government to allow @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib entry.”
“Heartsick to hear that anti-LGBTQ+ violence increased during Pride Month. Hate and homophobia should have no place here in America. Now is the time to get in this fight for a country where LGBTQ+ Americans can live without fear.
“For decades, Washington has done the bidding of giant multinational corporations that have no loyalty to American workers like Kim and Bella. They deserve a government that’s on their side. As president, I’ll use every tool available to defend and create American jobs.”
“The warning signs for another recession are flashing. We need to pay attention and act now, while we still have time to avert a downturn. I'm calling on Congress and regulators to take action before families lose big—again.”
Everyone should be able to access high-quality, affordable, gender-affirming health care. But the Trump administration is trying to roll back important protections for trans Americans. Help fight back by leaving a comment for HHS in protest
The Walmart heirs make $4 million an hour. A new Walmart associate makes $11 an hour. My two-cent wealth tax on families like the Waltons would help level the playing field for working families and rebuild the middle class.
“Farmers of color have experienced a long history of discrimination. From 1910 to 1997, Black farmers were stripped of 90% of their land—a staggering loss and a major contribution to the racial wealth gap.”
The people of Hong Kong are making clear that they will not tolerate repression, and their movement affirms: The power is with the people. They deserve our support and the support of the world.
Trump’s #PublicCharge policy makes it harder for immigrants who rely on government services to get permanent legal status. Families shouldn't be forced to choose between staying in our country & having access to basic health care & housing. As president, I'd overturn this rule.
“The Walmart heirs make $4 million an hour. A new Walmart associate makes $11 an hour. My two-cent wealth tax on families like the Waltons would help level the playing field for working families and rebuild the middle class.”
This is a big win for @GavinGrimmVA and trans Americans across the country. When we fight, we win—and we won’t stop fighting until all trans people can live without fear or discrimination.
In 2017, almost 40,000 people died from guns in the United States. My goal as President, and our goal as a society, will be to reduce that number by 80%. We might not know how to get all the way there yet. But we’ll start by implementing solutions that we believe will work. We’ll continue by constantly revisiting and updating those solutions based on new public health research.
Warren explains the plight of Farmers, how they are squeezed by markets and competition, and are forced to over produce in order that damages the environment. She points out that much of this is due to government policy and proposes policies to change this trend!
A strong America requires a strong rural America. Rural communities are home to 60 million people, hundreds of tribal nations, and a growing number of new immigrants who account for 37% of rural population growth. These communities feed our nation. And they are leading the country in sustainable energy, generating 99% of America’s wind energy and pioneering efforts to harness solar energy.
Income for middle class families hasn’t kept up with the rising costs of basics like housing, child care, and education. We need big, structural change to our economy so families have more financial security. That’s why I’m running for president.
Last month, I released my economic patriotism agenda - my commitment to fundamentally changing the government’s approach to the economy so that we put the interests of American workers and families ahead of the interests of multinational corporations. I’ve already released my ideas for applying economic patriotism to manufacturing and to Wall Street. This is my plan for using economic patriotism to overhaul our approach to trade.
No student should live in fear of discrimination. As president, I will not only fight my heart out for LGBTQ+ students' rights, I will nominate a former public school teacher as education secretary. We need a leader who will actually fight for our kids.
I warned about an economic crash years before the 2008 crisis, but the people in power wouldn’t listen. Now I’m seeing serious warning signs in the economy again — and I’m calling on regulators and Congress to act before another crisis costs America’s families their homes, jobs, and savings.
To raise wages, help small businesses, and spur economic growth, we need to shut down the Wall Street giveaways and rein in the financial industry so it stops sucking money out of the rest of the economy. That’s what my new plan does.
“I’ve spent years advocating for postal banking—allowing the United States Postal Service to partner with local community banks and credit unions to provide access to low-cost, basic banking services. As President, I’ll make it happen by appointing people committed to the cause.”
Immigrants have always been a vital source of American strength. They grow our economy and make our communities richer and more diverse. So I say decriminalize migration and refocus enforcement on serious criminal activity. Entering the country without authorization has always been a violation of civil immigration law, but thanks to a former segregationist Senator, it’s also a criminal violation. This additional criminal provision is totally unnecessary for border security, and for a century, it was rarely enforced. But since the early 2000s, it has been used to build and sustain a massive immigration detention complex.
Climate change is an existential threat. It’s real, it’s man-made, and we’re running out of time to address it. Our government needs to take bold action and use all the tools available to combat climate change before it’s too late. That’s why I’m proud to be an original supporter of the Green New Deal.
I opposed Secretary Acosta's nomination, and voted against his confirmation. The last few days have only highlighted how ethically compromised and unfit to serve he is. Acosta must resign—now.
For generations, our federal government denied Black and Brown families the same kinds of homeownership subsidies available to white families. My housing plan tackles the legacy of racist redlining.
No closed-door fundraisers. No D.C. lobbyists. No PACs of any kind. I’m incredibly grateful for every grassroots donor who is helping grow this campaign. Will you chip in $3 or whatever you can to keep up the momentum? I may even call to say thanks!
Our society and our economy demand so much of women — but they place a particular burden on Black, Latina, Native American, Asian, and other women of color. More than 70% of Black mothers and more than 40% of Latina mothers are their families’ sole breadwinners — compared to less than a quarter of white mothers. Black women participate in the labor force at higher rates than white women, and Latinas’ share of the labor force has nearly doubled over the past 20 years. And at the same time, Black and Brown women have more caregiving responsibilities, with Black and Latinx caregivers spending 50% more hours a week on caregiving than white caregivers.
American security and prosperity depend on robust diplomacy. Our diplomats are the front line of our engagement with the world. Through a toxic combination of malice and neglect, Donald Trump has declared war on the State Department. In one of his first acts, he attempted to cut the State Department’s budget by a third. Some senior career officials were pushed out, while others resigned in protest. The State Department has lost 60% of its career ambassadors and 20% of its most experienced civil servants.
One way I’m fighting is through my plan to end for-profit detention centers, which have made millions implementing Trump’s cruel immigration policies. Today 73% of detained immigrants are held in private detention facilities. Under my plan, we’ll end this.
Elections are the foundation of our democracy, but in the United States — the greatest democracy in the world — our government treats voting like it’s one of the least important things we do. Our elections should be as secure as Fort Knox. But instead, they’re less secure than your Amazon account. We need a constitutional amendment to guarantee the right to vote.
My #UltraMillionaireTax is a two-cent tax on the 75,000 biggest fortunes in the country. We’d use it to pay for #UniversalChildCare, student loan debt relief, free public college, and a lot more. Here’s how it works.
Last month Caliburn International — a for-profit company whose subsidiary operates Homestead, the largest detention center for unaccompanied migrant children - hired John Kelly, Trump’s former chief of staff. Caliburn has profited directly off of the Trump administration’s inhumane immigration policies - while children at Homestead are reportedly kept in unsanitary, prison-like conditions, often for months. Now John Kelly is cashing in, too.
I’m glad to introduce the Refund Equality Act in the Senate. Our bill ensures legally-married, same-sex couples can claim the tax refunds they earned, but were denied before marriage equality was the law of the land.
A few months ago I met @Liat_RO, a public school science teacher and activist, at an organizing event in Brooklyn, NY. Liat gave me a great idea: The next Secretary of Education should be a former public school teacher. I agreed—and pledged to make it happen.
America needs to face the things we’ve done wrong and take steps towards making it right. My housing plan creates a first-of-its-kind down-payment assistance program to help Black and Brown families living in formerly redlined neighborhoods buy a home.
Our country needs big, structural change to confront the tools of oppression Black Americans still face today. One of these tools of oppression is violence. Our Black friends, family, and neighbors fear dying in the streets. But calling out these systemic inequalities is not enough. We need a plan to beat them down. To safeguard communities from police brutality, we need to make policing a truly community endeavor — not in just a few cities, but everywhere.
It’s long past time to bring our troops home, and Congress should always have a vigorous and very public debate before sending our troops into harm's way. I support @BLeeForCongress's amendment to repeal the current AUMF and help #EndForeverWar.
Our country must confront the impact that generations of slavery and racist policies still have on Black Americans. I support legislation to study and develop plans for reparations.
Every American should have a fair shot at starting a small business. The only things that should determine whether a new business succeeds are the strength of the idea and the hard work of the owners and employees. But today, the playing field is tilted against entrepreneurs of color. On average, Black, Latinx, Native American, and other minority households have a lot less wealth than white households.
On #NationalGunViolenceAwarenessDay, I’m thinking about how our country loses an average of seven children and teens to gun violence every day. Enough is enough. I’m fighting like hell for #GunReformNow and to end the @NRA’s death grip on our federal government.
When I was in Michigan this week, I met a lot of young people who were fired up and ready to fight for big, structural change. I’m glad to see Michigan make it easier for college students to vote!
Trump's former chief of staff played a huge role in the inhumane family separation policy. Now John Kelly's joining the board of a company that runs Homestead, the largest detention center for migrant kids. Rep. @PramilaJayapal and I are demanding answers.
Here’s what my Green Manufacturing Plan would do: Make a real investment in science Commit $1.5 trillion to our federal government to buy American and buy green Develop and manufacture American products here to sell all around the world
Payday lenders spent buckets of money on Trump's campaign and properties. Then Trump's @CFPB director, Kathy Kraninger, did the predatory payday lending industry a huge favor by rolling back important regulations. It's corruption, plain and simple.
I'm in the fight for reproductive rights all the way. We need to: End the #HydeAmendment and Trump’s gag rule Pass the EACH Woman Act Ensure that #MedicareForAll includes contraception and abortion coverage Defend #TitleX family planning funding
We had a great organizing event in Detroit earlier this week, and one of the best parts was receiving more notes from people in the selfie line! I love reading about what gets people into this fight for big, structural change.
Here’s what really troubles me: The Trump administration keeps trying to deny science across the board. At our #WarrenTownHall, I made it clear: Climate change is one of the biggest crises we face, and we need to make big, structural changes in order to address it head on.
My Green Manufacturing Plan is the first example of economic patriotism in action, and part of how I’ll implement my commitment to a Green New Deal. With big and bold investments in American research, American industry, and American workers, we can lead the global effort to combat climate change — and create more than a million good jobs here at home.
I come from a patriotic family. All three of my brothers joined the military. And I’m deeply grateful for the opportunities America has given me. But the giant “American” corporations who control our economy don’t seem to feel the same way. They certainly don’t act like it. These “American” companies show only one real loyalty: to the short-term interests of their shareholders, a third of whom are foreign investors.
I’m praying for Johana Medina Leon and her loved ones. Not a single person should die in ICE custody. We need to call out the number of trans women of color who’ve died under ICE custody, and we need answers.
Today, I took @DemRedistrict’s pledge to support fair districts and end partisan gerrymandering. I’m with @EricHolder all the way. The power belongs to the people, and voters should choose their representatives—not the other way around. #FairMaps
Some big, “American” companies will ship jobs overseas and hollow out our cities if it'll save them a nickel. And many already have. I've got a plan to make sure a Warren administration will defend and create good American jobs.
With bold investments, we can fight climate change, achieve the ambitious targets of the Green New Deal, and create more than a million good jobs here at home. I have a plan to invest at least $2 trillion in green research, manufacturing, and exporting.
Mueller’s statement made clear what those of us who have read his report already knew: He’s referring President Trump for impeachment, and it’s up to Congress to act. But impeachment isn’t supposed to be the only way that a President can be held accountable for committing a crime.That’s why I’ve got a plan to make sure that no President is above the law.That’s why I came out in favor of impeachment after reading all 448 pages of Mueller’s report. This is not about politics — it’s our constitutional duty as members of Congress. It’s a matter of principle.
Extremist lawmakers want to outlaw abortion—and they’re hoping the Supreme Court will back their scheme. Congress must pass new federal laws if we want to protect access to reproductive care.
.@BostonLogan airport workers keep us safe and get us where we need to go. I’m glad that @MassAGO is holding contractors accountable, and making sure workers are paid every penny they’ve earned.
Selling more weapons to Saudi Arabia doesn't make America safer or align with our country's values. It only benefits defense contractors and @realDonaldTrump's alarming desire to sow chaos abroad. l'll do everything I can in Congress to stop it.
Last week, @SenatorMenendez, @NydiaVelazquez & I questioned @FEMA about the delays. Now, the agency has confirmed the hospital on Vieques will be rebuilt. It's a critical win for the people of Puerto Rico – and we’ll be with them every step of the way.
This is a despicable act of cowardice. This vandalism is meant to divide us – but I know it only strengthens the resolve of the people of Dorchester and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Last night, I voted for a major bipartisan disaster relief package that will help people across the country recover from natural disasters like hurricanes, flooding, and wildfires. When we work together, our nation comes out on top.
I was wrong. It's not 5 children dead – it's SIX. The Trump Admin just disclosed a 10-yr-old girl died in federal custody last year. Are there more we don't know about? We need oversight. We need accountability. We need to do everything we can to keep this from happening again.
Warren talks about consumer protection and how we have achieved this before and how we need to organize and create big structural change so America can work for the majority of its citizens.
I'm proud to cosponsor the Women’s Health Protection Act. It would #StopTheBans by enshrining Roe v. Wade into federal law – ensuring everyone in this country has access to abortion, no matter where they live. #ActForWomen
I stand with @AOC, @forrespect, and the 250,000 workers who lost jobs and severance pay when Wall Street fat cats @StevenMnuchin1 and Eddie Lampert gutted companies like @Sears. Together, we'll keep fighting for justice, accountability, and better futures for all.
10 years ago this week, Congress passed a bipartisan bill to help get the tricks & traps out of the fine print of credit card agreements – but the fight’s not over. We need a strong @CFPB to hold credit card companies accountable when they cheat customers & break the law.
It's been 48 days since the Violence Against Women Act passed the House. But @SenateMajLdr McConnell would rather help his @NRA buddies than bring #VAWA to the floor. This is ridiculous. Women's lives are more important than gun lobbyists' wish lists.
Washington is supposed to work for everyone. Instead, the rich & powerful like @StevenMnuchin1 & Eddie Lampert use it to become even more rich & powerful, while workers are left holding the bag. This is the DC swamp at its worst.
Steven Mnuchin and his college roommate Eddie Lampert (the CEO of Sears) piled the company with debt, closed thousands of stores, and enriched themselves at the expense of workers. Now, @StevenMnuchin1 could have a say in decisions affecting @Sears.
In December I called for @DHSOIG to investigate these deaths at the border, and that review is underway. But we need answers now: why are children dying after being taken into @CBP custody and what steps is CBP taking to end this string of tragedies?
Not on my watch. I’m cosponsoring legislation to stop us from going to war with Iran. Congress must use its constitutional authority to stop @realDonaldTrump from dragging us into another forever war.
Betsy DeVos is the worst Secretary of Education we’ve seen. Instead of championing our students, she protects for-profit colleges that break the law. So I’m making a pledge: In a Warren administration, the Secretary of Education will be a former public school teacher.
There's no greater example of how we're failing students and teachers than Betsy DeVos, the worst Secretary of Education we’ve seen. Appointed despite her conflicts of interest, she's spent her time protecting for-profit colleges that break the law and cheat students.
