Honoring and Empowering Tribal Nations and Indigenous Peoples

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.

A Fair and Welcoming Immigration System

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.

Valuing the Work of Women of Color

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.

We need to hold credit card companies accountable and protect consumers

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.

McConnell will not bring the Violence Against Women act to the floor for a vote

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.

Betsy Devos is the worst education secretary I have seen

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.

Betsy Devos protects for profit colleges that break the law and cheat students

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.
