This is the conversation about poverty that America doesn’t want to have: We discuss the poor as a pity or a blight, but we rarely admit that America’s high rate of poverty is a policy choice, and there are reasons we choose it over and over again. https://t.co/iny5vtgDHQ

Our #VotingInPrison bill is gaining lots of attention! Why? Because Illinois is starting to interrogate felony disenfranchisement and its impact on our democracy.

Thank you @PeterQHancock for covering #HB1872 and #SB828 so thoroughly.

#SB7 would criminalize election officials & people who give voter assistance (like caregivers), cut voting hours that Black & brown Texans rely on, create new barriers for disabled voters & more.

Gov. Abbott's special session will do anything but protect "election integrity".

Quoted @TexasTribune

2/ Midnight was the deadline for the Texas House to approve the legislation that would alter nearly the entire voting process, create new limitations to early voting hours, ratchet up voting-by-mail restrictions and curb local voting options. #TXlege https://t.co/nSzTl5nWTK

This happened over the weekend and it's bigger than just Texas.

State lawmakers all around the country are waging an unprecedented attack on our freedom to vote.

That's why Congress must pass the #ForThePeopleAct. We must protect our democracy.

Without term limits, Manhattan has only seen 4 district attorneys in the past 79 years. But on 6/22, New Yorkers have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to elect someone new.

Youth prisons are outdated, ineffective, and costly.
