Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill requiring implicit bias training for health care providers serving pregnant people.
Kamala HarrisI’m thrilled California is leading the way in the fight against the Black maternal health crisis. We must address this issue across the country- it’s time for Congress to pass my Maternal CARE Act to fund implicit bias training nationwide.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has confirmed the extent of the Russian government’s expertise at exploiting racial divisions in America.
Kamala HarrisThere's a lot happening in the news but we cannot overlook the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russian election interference released this week. One important fact we found: no group of voters was targeted more than Black Americans.
This map shows zones in the Bay Area that PG&E has flagged for precautionary power shutoffs. Enter your address to see if your house falls inside one of these zones.
Kamala HarrisIf you live in the Bay Area, here’s a helpful website for tracking PG&E’s power shut-offs. None of this is acceptable and PG&E must be held accountable for the lack of maintenance of their power lines. For now, please stay safe and exercise caution.
The brutal killing of four men occurred in a Manhattan neighborhood where the street homeless problem has long persisted.
Kamala HarrisThe hundreds of thousands of people currently living on the streets face serious risk of violence. That's why I’m introducing a bill to invest $13 billion to eradicate chronic homelessness in America. We cannot afford to wait.
The senator and congresswoman want to invest in more affordable housing ― a dire need in their home state of California.
Kamala HarrisYesterday I announced I'm working with @RepMaxineWaters on the Ending Homelessness Act, a bill to commit $13 billion to eradicate homelessness in America. We cannot afford to wait any longer on this issue.
File this under "empirical proof that mothers are real-life superheroes."
Kamala HarrisJust 10 months after giving birth, @allysonfelix has broken the record for the most gold medals at the track and field World Championships. What an achievement—mothers really are a force of nature. Can't wait to see what records she'll break next.

No person, no matter how rich or powerful, should be above the law or escape accountability.
Kamala HarrisJustice Brett Kavanaugh's seat on the Supreme Court is a national travesty—but we still have a chance to get it right.
That’s why I’m calling for an impeachment inquiry into Kavanaugh. Read my op-ed.
Kamala HarrisI saw firsthand how Kavanaugh's confirmation process was not a serious pursuit of truth or justice. His seat on the Supreme Court is a stain on our justice system—but we can get it right.
I called for an impeachment inquiry into Kavanaugh, here's why.
Kamala HarrisBrett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court one year ago today—and his seat on the Court remains a national travesty. Read my op-ed on why I’ve called for an impeachment inquiry into Kavanaugh.

We believe that no American should contract HIV simply because they cannot afford PrEP — which is why we’ve introduced the PrEP Access and Coverage Act in Congress.

Before he was nominated attorney general, Barr also accused the Obama administration of "fanning the false narrative of a 'rape culture.'"
Kamala HarrisThis is appalling. A majority of campus sexual assault cases go unreported in part because survivors don’t have faith they will be believed. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Barr must resign.
The South Florida death -- estimated to be the 18th killing of a transgender woman of color in the U.S. this year -- is being investigated as a homicide.
Kamala HarrisBee Love Slater is the 18th transgender woman of color to be murdered this year. We have to speak truth that anti-transgender violence and bigotry is real in America. My heart goes out to Bee's loved ones.
“Doing nothing about America’s gun violence crisis is simply unacceptable,” the heads of 145 companies tell senators in a letter.

A 12-year-old Bahamian girl was separated from parents in Nassau after being rescued from Abaco. She ended up in a Miami home for abused or abandoned kids.

CBP officials must be held accountable for the trauma they are inflicting on this girl.
The Pentagon is diverting $62.6 million from the construction of a new middle school at Fort Campbell, meaning that 552 students will continue to cram themselves in at an aging school.
Kamala HarrisTrump's willing to build his vanity project of a border wall with money budgeted for a school for military children. That tells you everything you need to know about how this administration is prioritizing military families.
A home health aide for a 77-year-old man serves as social worker, diaper changer, dietitian, day planner, warden and more — all at dismal wages.
Kamala HarrisHome care workers aren't valued nearly enough. We need to change that.
That's why @RepJayapal and I introduced the first ever National Domestic Workers Bill of Rights to finally give these workers the dignity, rights, and respect they deserve.
Black entrepreneurs say people of color are being shut out of the trade.
Kamala HarrisBlack & brown communities—who were disproportionately affected by the failed War on Drugs—are being shut out of the legal marijuana industry.

“We are coming for every elected office. If you aren’t going to fight for us, we are coming for your office.”
Kamala Harris“We’re not worrying about that Algebra 2 test or our Chemistry exam...we’re worrying if we’ll make it home again.”
We are failing our kids when they can't go through a day of school without worrying about being shot. I'm sick of this. Congress must act.
