The investment makes sense to build our labor force back better. ... read more »

My Plan to Lift Every Voice in Black America
October 22, 2020
President Trump wants to paper over the living wound of racism.

He actively appeals to white supremacists and fans the flames of hatred and division in our country, because he thinks it benefits him politically. He ignores the most basic job of every president: the duty to care for all of us, not just those who voted for him. ... read more »
