Congratulations to @JosePGarza for winning the primary runoff to be Travis County’s next district attorney. We need progressive leaders everywhere who will reform our broken and racist criminal justice system, and I look forward to seeing José bring change in Texas. https://t.co/gkSI7UsV9a
Congrats @JoeBiden for doing on energy/climate what he’s doing for America after so much division: he unites – plain and simple. Not only does his plan tackle climate, but he united the AFL, IBEW, UAW and Blue Green Alliance to create jobs and save our planet at the same time. https://t.co/2rNVLS1Xsj

Lots more interest in books exploring race, so one more to recommend: American Poison by my @nytimes colleague @portereduardo . It's a terrific research-driven look at race through an economic and historical lens. I learned a lot: https://t.co/EOujvAAJyh
When people come together to stand up for justice, we win.
Congratulations to the young people and community organizers who fought for this victory.
Together, we'll end our dependence on fossil fuels and ensure a livable planet for Vermonters and all future generations. https://t.co/3CqcWQo9t1
Millions of Americans lost jobs during the pandemic. Meanwhile, JP Morgan Chase—the largest bank in the country—announced its biggest quarterly revenue in history. At a time of massive income and wealth inequality we need an economy that works for workers, not just billionaires.
Deborah Peterson Small: “Slavery was basically a capitalist enterprise. So from the very beginning of the period after which black people were legally no longer enslaved, the same economic forces were looking for ways to continue to profit from free labor.” https://t.co/d8mK9jJk9G
If we even find a vaccine for the coronavirus, who will get it, and when? Dr Richard Hatchett of @CEPIvaccines warns “we really don’t see a scenario in 2021 where the supply of vaccines exceeds the global demand.” https://t.co/uNgVTJfgVD
Richard Hatchett was a pioneer in advocating social distancing in the Bush WH and now leads @CEPIvaccines. He is unequivocal: “I would urge people to adopt mask-wearing as a behavior that we're just going to all have to get used to during this period when we don't have vaccines.” https://t.co/NRzs3x5Ynr
Here's the state of our economy.
Over the last 30 years, the top 1% has seen an increase in wealth of $22 trillion, while the bottom 50% has actually seen a decline in wealth.
We must fight for an economy that works for all, not just the few.
My friendships have been some of the most important relationships of my life. I now have a term for those kinds of bonds: Big friendship.

John Barry wrote the leading book on the 1918 flu, "The Great Influenza." Now he warns that the US bungled its first chance to control the virus, and if it bungles its second chance it won't get a third try: https://t.co/1dfHzext72?
Ermenistan’ın Azerbaycan’a yönelik saldırısında şehit olan kardeşlerimize Allah’tan rahmet, yaralılara şifa diliyorum. Karabağ işgalini sürdüren Ermenistan bu saldırılarla bölgeyi ateş alanına çevirme uğraşında. Bilinmelidir ki Türkiye her zaman kardeş Azerbaycan’ın yanındadır.
Edebiyatımızın ulu çınarlarından Adalet Ağaoğlu'nun vefatını büyük üzüntüyle öğrendim. Romanlarıyla hayata farklı pencerelerden bakmamızı sağlayan #AdaletAğaoğlu’na Allah’tan rahmet, yakınlarına ve sevenlerine başsağlığı dilerim.
