Nursing mothers deserve support, not discrimination. That’s why I was proud to vote for the #PUMPAct to ensure that nursing mothers have the time and privacy to pump at work.
Nursing mothers should never be forced to risk their health or their baby’s health in order to keep their jobs.
My #PUMPAct would ensure that millions of nursing mothers have the time and privacy they need to pump at work.
Today is #LatinaEqualPayDay: the day that Latinas’ average pay catches up to what their white, male colleagues made LAST YEAR. It’s well past time for the Senate to pass the #PaycheckFairnessAct and close the wage gap for good.
📢 Thirty-eight states have ratified the Equal Rights Amendment, crossing the threshold for adoption into the Constitution. It’s past time to finally cement gender equity for all. It’s time for #ERANow.
Attorney General @BrianFrosh has done a great job as Maryland’s chief legal officer over the last seven years. He’s been tough on crime and helped protect consumers, all while stewarding environmental justice. I wish him the best of luck in his retirement.
The #FreedomToVote Act will restore the promise of democracy for all Americans. The Senate must pass this legislation to protect the fundamental right to vote, end the dominance of dark money in politics and stop partisan gerrymandering.
Happy birthday, Madam @vp! Grateful for all you do to serve our nation each and very day. Wishing you a very special day today.
Today, the Senate will vote to advance the #FreedomToVoteAct, which will ensure all Americans have a voice and vote in our democracy.
I urge my Senate colleagues to debate this most pressing issue and realize the promise of democracy for all.
