Today, I announced that I’m seriously considering running for the U.S. Senate.

This is a movement of folks coming together to say we won’t be lied to or ignored by politicians anymore. We’re going to talk about our dreams again.

Within months, Florida’s Republican-controlled Legislature tried to limit the effect of the initiative — passing a measure to allow voting only by ex-felons who have paid off all court-imposed fees, which in some cases amount to tens of thousands of dollars. 📸: @WallySkalij

Roughly 1.4 million Floridians had their voting rights restored last year by state voters through a ballot measure. Amendment 4 casts a national spotlight on the disenfranchisement of felons, long after they served their sentences. @kurtisalee reports:

Great piece, @CapehartJ.

I’m gay & was elected in a majority black city to serve on City Council, as State Rep, & now as State Senator.

When we pushed for an LGBT rights city ordinance, our best allies were in the black community who knew all too well about discrimination.

@AOC and @BernieSanders: You can’t just talk the talk on EJ you have to actually go to those people and listen to their voices. I don’t think undermining and ignoring the #EJPresForum showed solidarity or seriousness on addressing EJ.

I’m disappointed that @AOC and @BernieSanders didn’t show solidarity with frontline communities by lifting up and figuring a way to participate in the first ever #EJPresForum held in South Carolina the same weekend as their #climatesummit events in Iowa

Supreme Court to decide if a border guard can shoot a child with impunity - Vox

It’s reprehensible that this would go before any court, much less SCOTUS.

America has lost her footing.

Friendly reminder that this little worm fired his African American police chief after he found out he was taping his racist white coworkers and then refused to release those tapes.
