Good news! My colleagues on the Transportation & Environment committee accepted my recommendation to double funding for @MOCOSRTS Safe Routes to Schools program and fund a study of all sidewalk gaps in school walksheds. Now on to full council! 🚍🚶🏽👩🏾🦽👨🏿🦯 #SafeRoutestoSchools @MCPS
No student should have to walk to school in unsafe conditions like this but it happens everyday in our county due to under investment in our Safe Routes to Schools program. These students are walking on Norwood Rd to get to Blake HS. We must do better. #VisionZero #Infrastructure

The Black unemployment rate needs to be our measure for a successful recovery.
We can’t go back to “normal” when that meant tolerating these disparities. https://twitter.com/rakeen_mabud/status/1390649975479078912
Black unemployment rate ticked up (to 9.7)
White unemployment rate ticked down (to 5.3)
The already massive gap between white and Black workers continues to widen.
@SonalRShah Yes, absolutely take it!!😅
@hmcghee @SpotifyUSA Congratulations. This is great!
Today we remember the Mexican patriots who fought off French forces at the Battle of the Puebla on May 5, 1862. Happy #CincoDeMayo to all those celebrating.
