On this day in 1920, the #19thAmendment was ratified, and women were granted the constitutional right to vote. I have immense gratitude for the generations of women who paved the way for equal participation in the most important process in our democracy.

Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones

“More than half of the COVID-19 patients in the UNC ICU are under age 50, with some as young as their late teens. Many were healthy before COVID, without underlying health conditions that would aggravate their illness.” These stories are devastating. Please protect yourself and your loved ones by getting the vaccine.

Documented Dreamers

I sent a letter urging leadership to include a pathway to citizenship for Documented Dreamers in the reconciliation bill. There are over 200,000 children & young adults living in the United States as dependents of long-term nonimmigrant visa holders. I have heard firsthand from Documented Dreamers in my district who fear they will be forced to return to a country they no longer call home when they turn 21. We must find a permanent path to residency for these young adults and children. https://abc11.com/documented-dreamers-legal-immigration-immigrants-daca/10925042/

Voting Rights Act

Today in 1965, the Voting Rights Act was signed into law. Civil rights leaders like Congressman John Lewis fought hard for this victory. He, along with many other brave leaders, put their lives on the line to protect the right to vote for communities of color across the country. We need federal laws in place to combat voter suppression and ensure that every voice is heard in every election. As a state legislator, I worked to protect and expand voting rights. In Congress, I’m fighting around the clock to pass legislation that will protect our fundamental right to vote.
