From fighting to protect health care for millions & permanently renewing the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, it’s been a busy week. Here are a few moments that stood out.
Under the ACA, the 130 million Americans w/ pre-existing conditions cannot be discriminated against by their insurer. Their health care costs could skyrocket if the GOP's Texas v. U.S. lawsuit succeeds in throwing out years of progress on health care. #ProtectOurCare
The story of America has always been one of ever-expanding freedoms & opportunities. Since 1964, the Civil Rights Act has stood as the pillar of fairness & justice. We will never waver in our mission to protect & expand the cause of civil rights as we work to build a more just & equal future for all.
This #Pride Month has reminded us that despite the many challenges facing the #LGBTQ community nationwide, there is so much reason for hope. I grateful for all of the azing work being done to advance equality here in San Francisco & nationwide. #pride2019
50 years after the Stonewall Uprising, the movement for equality and acceptance that it triggered is continuing to improve the lives of LGBTQ Americans & all who love them nationwide. #Pride
Bayard Rustin played a key role in some of the most iconic events from the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. His influence and leadership behind the scenes helped facilitate historic protests such as the Montgomery bus boycott and the 1963 March on Washington, which he organized. As a close advisor to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Bayard helped promote a philosophy of nonviolent resistance that became inextricably linked with the era. In 2013, President Barack Obama posthumously awarded Rustin the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States.
After serving as an astronaut, Sally Ride shared her love of space by founding a program designed to inspire generations of girls and young women to pursue their interests in science and math. Ride’s legacy lives on in the progress America continues to make in space exploration and ongoing efforts to bring women and girls into the STEM community.
In the four years since the Supreme Court ruled that marriage equality was the right of every American, we have been blessed with the countless LGBTQ couples and families whose love and devotion strengthen our communities every day. As we celebrate this important anniversary, House Democrats are fighting tirelessly to bring our nation closer to its founding promise of full equality and to dismantle the discrimination that undermines our democracy. Last month, we took an historic step to finally, fully end discrimination against all LGBTQ Americans by passing the landmark Equality Act. Now, the Senate must end its obstruction, honor Congress’s constitutional responsibility and bring up this critical legislation for a vote. We will never stop our march toward justice until we have secured full equality for the LGBTQ community and all Americans.
