Today I am suspending my campaign. But while the campaign ends, the struggle for justice continues on.

Private equity angles for piece of stimulus windfall

We must protect struggling small and independent businesses, not the profits of vulture fund managers. Taxpayer money must not be used to bail out private equity.

There is a word to describe our health care system today: grotesque. We need Medicare for All.

When we talk about systemic racism, that means serious inequalities in our health care system. Join our live town hall on how the coronavirus crisis is having a disproportionately harmful impact on the African American community:

I agree with @ewarren that our response to the COVID-19 crisis must include a robust plan to protect the right to vote, and in fact, make it easier to vote.

The myth that #COVID19 is an "equal opportunity killer" must be dispelled. It is unacceptable that Black America is getting sick and dying at much higher rates. Join us at 7:00PM to discuss ways we can overcome these economic and health disparities:

Absentee voters in Wisconsin: Remember to flip to the back of the ballot and vote YES on the @voteyesformps and @Yes4OurKids Milwaukee and Racine school district funding referendums so these students can get the education they deserve.

Judges should stand up for the needs of working people and civil rights, not huge corporate CEO donors, which is why I strongly endorse @judgekarofsky for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Absentee voters in Wisconsin: remember to get your ballot postmarked today and vote for @judgekarofsky for the state Supreme Court. Help us create a government that works for working people.

Quoted @AP

Wisconsin's Supreme Court rules that Gov. Tony Evers cannot postpone the state’s presidential primary, striking down his order to move the vote to June over coronavirus fears. Barring an appeal, the election will go forward Tuesday.

It's outrageous that the Republican legislative leaders and the conservative majority on the Supreme Court in Wisconsin are willing to risk the health and safety of many thousands of Wisconsin voters tomorrow for their own political gain.

Let's be clear: holding this election amid the coronavirus outbreak is dangerous, disregards the guidance of public health experts, and may very well prove deadly. For that reason, our campaign will not be engaged in any traditional GOTV efforts.

Join nurses and community members today April 6th at 4pm to speak out against the month long closure of an ER on the South Side of Chicago. 68% of Covid deaths are African Americans, we need expansion of healthcare not reductions.

Health care facilities that provide essential care in their communities must stay open, period. I stand with the members of @nationalnurses who are protesting the closure of an emergency room on the South Side of Chicago today.

This is a massive crisis and it is absurd that in the United States of America, our medical personnel and our hospitals do not have the equipment and protection they need.

As frontline workers, we put the needs of our customers before our own every time we start a shift.

It’s time Walmart enact a #PaidLeave policy to provide us some protections from COVID-19.
