Big news: This week Senator Kamala Harris & Rep. Pramila Jayapal will introduce the #DomesticWorkersBillofRights! Domestic workers were deliberately excluded from many of the country’s foundational labor laws. With this federal legislation, they would win absolutely critical labor protections - Congress should pass it quickly and grant domestic workers the safety and dignity they deserve.

The NYC #WNTParade celebrating our #FIFAWWC champs has BEGUN. 🏆⚽️🎉 We’re beyond grateful to @USWNTplayers for shining a global spotlight on pay equity. We’re with you every step of the way, & we’re reenergized in our fight for fair pay for ALL women, in every industry.
On today’s 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, we’re reflecting on the fearless activism of Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera and their legacy fighting for the liberation of all people. Together, these two trailblazing transgender and gay rights activists co-founded STAR, a nonprofit that served homeless trans and gay youth and helped them access basic services like health care and housing.
We still have so much more work to do so that every single person can live with freedom, safety, and dignity -- particularly transgender and nonbinary people. Here’s to honoring Marsha and Sylvia’s legacies on Stonewall’s 50th anniversary by continuing that fight. #pride#stonewall50
Zero: That's the number of questions about sexual harassment that were asked at the first presidential debate. "It's more than unfortunate — it's unacceptable," our Chief Policy and Strategy Officer, Jen Klein, told @Refinery29 this morning. We'll be watching the candidates closely to hear what their plan is to address sexual harassment at work — an issue 80 percent of voters think is important. #DemDebate#TIMESUP2020
YES! 🔥🔥🔥 regram @serenawilliams: "In 2001, Wheaties paid homage to a true champion and an icon by putting her on the cover of a Wheaties Box. Althea Gibson was the FIRST Black Woman tennis player to be on the box. Today, I am honored to be the second."
