Celebrating Mother’s Day
This Sunday, Americans across the country will gather with their families to celebrate the immense contributions made by the mothers in their lives. As we pay tribute to America’s moms, Mother’s Day also serves as a reminder that we must do more to support and lift up working families in this country.
Poverty in America is a searing challenge to the conscience of our country. How can it be that in the wealthiest nation on earth, 1 in 5 children live in poverty and 1 in 4 children go to sleep hungry? How can it be that in the land of the American Dream, so many of our fellow Americans are stuck – so many of our fellow Americans are struggling?
Supporting Homeless Youth
As we begin the Holiday season in the company of our loved ones, I write to thank each one of you for the privilege of representing our beautiful city in Congress.
