The smoke has spread from fires burning thousands of miles away.
Tom SteyerDevastating. The Amazon comprises more than half of the world’s remaining rainforest, and it’s burning at the rate of one football field each minute. We must change our relationship with the earth immediately, or risk losing our natural wonders for good.
The administration wants to send migrant families caught crossing the border illegally to a family detention center for as long as it takes for their cases to be decided.
Tom SteyerCrossing the border illegally is a misdemeanor. Holding families indefinitely without due process is a violation of human rights. We must close the camps immediately or risk losing our humanity. Is this really who we are?
Daniel Pantaleo has been fired. Black and brown people are still afraid for our lives.
Tom SteyerOfficer Pantaleo is only one police officer in one city. Black and brown Americans know that every interaction with a cop could reveal another. There is a crisis of police violence against our neighbors. We must speak out and stop it. #blacklivesmatter
Options could include a payroll tax cut or reversing tariffs.

A new statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics looks at the effects of racism on children’s development, starting in the womb.
Tom SteyerWhite supremacy is impacting the most vulnerable among us at a cellular level. This is about more than racist rhetoric. It’s about a system that’s rigged from before birth. Our children deserve better.
"If they're willing to do that to us, we can't imagine the violence the ICE detainees behind those walls may be subject to every day," an organizer said.
Tom SteyerIt's insane that @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib are being called anti-Semitic when the pawns of this administration are doing THIS to Jewish protestors. This is state sponsored violence against peaceful protestors.
Ohio may have won its Supreme Court battle to implement its extreme “use it or lose it” voter purges. But...
Tom SteyerEveryone must be able to vote with no discrimination and no barriers. Participation in our government is the foundation of this country.
