Rashida For CongressTonight, a @910Superstation listener called in to ask what more he can do to get people to understand the seriousness of #COVID19 & #stayhome. I shared the following story of a mother of 6 who had to say goodbye to her children through a walkie talkie.

Fears of a coronavirus outbreak have prompted the city of Detroit on Monday to begin restoring water to thousands of households and offer a moratorium...
Rashida For CongressI hold deep appreciation for the grassroots advocates and impacted families who have demanded for years, and continue to demand, that water be treated as the human right it is - this is because of you.
"Now there’s one progressive in the race," said a leader of the Working Families Party.
Rashida For Congress.@BernieSanders lifts up the needs of those living in poverty, centers working families, & has a vision for everyday folks to get ahead. A Sanders Administration means a sense of urgency to tackle pressing issues. Let’s do this, @WorkingFamilies! #NotMeUs
"It doesn't matter if you're Christian, Muslim, Jewish ... you have the same dreams and aspirations," Sanders said
Rashida For CongressBefore introducing @BernieSanders Palestinian American comedian + activist @AmerZahr reflected on the man who waved a Nazi flag at the Jewish candidate's rally in Philadelphia. He called the incident a disgrace. He welcomed him to Dearborn with open arms.
Other countries around the world understand the importance of child care, early education, and family leave. It is long past time for the United States to join them.
Rashida For CongressA full-time minimum wage worker in Michigan would have to give up more than half their salary just to pay for child care for one infant. @BernieSanders’ plan will end this injustice and guarantee a free, quality child care and pre-K as a right to all.
While most would agree that supporting the troops is a moral necessity, America's military veterans aren't getting the help they need upon returning home.
Rashida For CongressThis is a national crisis.

The water department believes that 10,145 shut off accounts serve occupied properties.
Rashida For CongressWater is a human right. The amount of public dollars spent for hockey stadiums, high rise luxury condos, & other *for-profit* projects, but we can't find money to help our most vulnerable. You know it's bad when folks can't afford to buy access to water.
Advocates have decried the practice as intrusive, saying it could enable the Trump administration to create a massive database to surveil immigrants.
Rashida For CongressI think every member of Congress should go through this dehumanizing act of submitting their DNA. The way we are treating immigrants, especially children, is disgusting and hurts all of us.
Palestinian is seen screaming in agony as he slumps to the floor
Rashida For CongressPeople ask me to explain what's occupation. I can only show them.
It causes human suffering, violence & is a form of oppression + dehumanization that no human being should experience. This ⬇️⬇️ right here is occupation.
Looking away is being dishonest.
Rashida For CongressLet's unite & help @GM workers on strike.⬇️
Workers took a hit on their wages & benefits for years, but they didn’t abandon GM. Now that GM’s thriving again, it’s leaving workers & their families behind. It’s a complete betrayal. #13thDistrictStrong @UAW
