Furious about Kavanaugh? Don’t just sit there. We need your power. The truth is, there’s a LOT you can do. We may only have four days until the final vote, and your voice is needed now. This is a thread about what’s coming, and how you can help. Please follow along and share. 1/

Now @AdyBarkan speaking. Apologizes for his difficulty because of ALS (and after intense #BeAHero tour). Calls for universal health care - gets round of applause.

It’s been a long day. 20 hours of poignant conversations with journalists, parents, and activists about the state of our nation and our prospects for stopping this cruel bill. But I want to talk about my wife, @rachael_scar . And about women. In America. In 2017.
Her name is Rachael Scarborough King. She is a professor of English Literature at the University of California, Santa Barbara. And she is Carl’s mother.
We started dating senior year of college. We had worked together at the campus rag, @ColumbiaSpec. Within weeks, I felt like we were already settled into a long-term relationship. We just fitted.
