President Trump issues two executive orders that could make it harder for states to block companies from building oil and gas pipeline projects.
Kamala HarrisDon’t let this go unnoticed: these executive orders will pave the way for new oil pipelines like Keystone XL. It’s wrong and yet another example of the administration continuing to line the pockets of Big Oil at the expense of our environment.
Residents living in the aftermath of the Camp fire, the deadliest blaze in state history, say it feels like they've been forgotten.
Kamala HarrisTo all disaster survivors in California & across the country: I see you, I’m with you & I will continue to fight for you. I recently called on Congressional leadership to pass additional disaster relief funding for survivors. We must do this immediately.
Black and Hispanics are exposed to higher levels of air pollution than whites, yet whites consume more of the goods and services that cause it, according to new research.
Kamala HarrisCommunities of color are disproportionately suffering from the effects of air pollution. That's why it's so important to ensure equity & justice for these communities as we fight for clean air & develop a Green New Deal.
On March 6, Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA, along with 42 members of Congress reintroduced the Debt-Free College Act, a Senate bill that would provide a pathway to affordable college tuition.
Kamala HarrisCollege debt has increased by 170% since 2006 and is now the second-highest form of debt for Americans. That is absurd & our students deserve better. Proud to join my colleagues in re-introducing the Debt-Free College Act.
For decades, Harvard Chan alumni have shed light on high maternal mortality rates in African American women. Finally, policymakers are beginning to pay attention.
Kamala HarrisBlack women are 3-4x more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes. My Maternal CARE Act would provide grants for implicit bias training & incentivize health care providers to deliver integrated care to reduce maternal mortality & racial disparities.
Rolling back work permits for the spouses of H-1B visa holders could have sweeping consequences for the Bay Area, where tech companies heavily rely on high-skilled immigrants.. Many of those workers come to the U.S. with spouses and children, and...
Kamala HarrisThis is outrageous & will force immigrant women who are doctors, nurses, scientists & academics, among others, to abandon their professional careers. I called on DHS last year to withdraw this proposal & will continue to fight this.

The only warmer years were 2015, 2016 and 2017, according to NASA records that go back more than a century.
Kamala HarrisThe past four years have been the warmest on record. There's simply no denying the reality of climate change and the existential threat it poses to our planet. That's why last week my colleagues & I introduced a Green New Deal resolution.
I got 99 problems but black women will cure all of them someday.
Kamala HarrisBlack women have been making their mark in the sciences for decades. To all young Black women aspiring in STEM today: know that you're not alone & you stand on the shoulders of these inspiring women. Take a moment to learn about them today. #WomenInScience
A Senate committee on Tuesday voted to approve Acting EPA chief Andrew Wheeler to take over at the agency permanently.
Kamala HarrisAndrew Wheeler is a climate change skeptic and former coal lobbyist who is now one step closer to becoming the head of the Environmental Protection Agency. This is absurd. I firmly oppose his nomination and urge my colleagues to do the same.
Inside accounts are seeping out of a New York prison where hundreds of people have been incarcerated without heat as the city endured arctic weather.
Kamala HarrisThis is horrifying & should never happen in America.
“…I saw a young man on the floor, holding a bright red inhaler, and he was saying through tears that he doesn’t know if he’s going to wake up tomorrow…This man is pre-trial…”
Kamala HarrisLet's be clear: women's reproductive healthcare is standard healthcare, and having access to routine screenings is so critical to preventing cervical cancer as well as other serious illnesses. Thank you @DrLeanaWen for sharing this powerful story.
