Vermont is great. I get to see my rep @PeterWelch at the dump quite often. Today we discussed migrant children crisis over the recycling. Welch reminded me unless we #flipthehouse we can’t pass @senmerkley S3084 or @dwstweets and @repbass bills on investigating detention centers
Welch listened to my Pediatric ICU experience on how we carefully weighed each child and double checked drug calculations with a 2nd RN before administration of meds to babies/kids. And that we had a detailed medical history, allergies, conditions and monitored for side effects.
Welch visited the detention centers in Texas with his friend @SenMerkley and was also forbidden was access. This horror will continue unless we keep yelling about it and making it impossible for members to continue on in peace. Are your senators cosponsors of S 3084 and S 2849?
Is your Rep a cosponsor of the DONE and #reuniteActs? Ask them. Tweet them. Call them. Write them.
Keep up the pressure is what @peterwelch says we can do.
Until we #flipthehouse we will have increased funding and expansion of
#babyjails unless we are so loud they have to act.

I’m on the 🚂 to philly heading to the sentencing of the most infamous rapist of all time Bill #Cosby.

We are hoping to see this criminal walk out in shackles for his 45year+ depraved crime spree of drugging and raping over 60 women.

Watch this space for pics and updates!
#SentenceCosby30years

Graphics by @FrancescaRizzo Part of a 4 year digital campaign to raise awareness of the names of the human victims of #Cosby’s 45 year drug and rape crime spree.
No one knows all of these survivors’ names.

They aren’t famous, they didn’t “cash in”
By being raped.

Youngs need to be told Biden got a big shiny rehab by Barack.

He was VILE to Anita Hill in front of her 80 year old BLACK country church proper one generation removed from SLAVERY parents. It was vile.

Dear not alive during #AnitaHill:

Those hearings terrorized us as we sat transfixed, knowing for a fact we would not be believed

or given a fair chance to tell our stories of rape and harassment

In America or in front of the United States Senate.

#NoBiden
#metoo
#KavanaughConfirmation and his fascist Theocrat cronies Grassley and Orrin Hatch simply following the crucifixion of Anita Hill model of Trotting out dude after dude who told us that Clarence Thomas “wasn’t” a porn addicted rapist. #longDongSilver
During the Anita Hill hearings a sharp line emerged between women who had been raped and harassed

and those who hadn’t yet reconciled and named their experiences.

Women in denial called Anita a bitch.

The rest of us wore buttons

because her story was our story.

Door knocking matters.

I lived in Florida when walkin’ Lawton Chiles was a representative and then governor of our state.

Chiles was famous for walking first his entire district when he ran for his house seat and then won.

Chile’s Met voters door-to-door, town to town/1
Walkin’ Lawton m@et the people where they were.

Walkin’ Lawton was sneered at for his “no chance” Democrat pro civil rights campaign and for being a “redneck”

Walkin’ Lawton just kept walking and converting red voters blue with each step.
Walkin’ Lawton got it that connecting with voters in person is the way to build a coalition.

🛑 👂 to voter concerns, hear problems repeated then seize on solutions based messages.

Often voters are experts on their one issue.

If you are a wise candidate or canvasser you 🛑 👂

My Adoption advice for lesbians: Hurry up. Fascist theocrats are attempting to take away our adoption rights.
“federal legislation could be on the way. In July 2018, Republican representatives introduced a bill that would protect adoption agencies with state or federal contracts who discriminate on religious or moral grounds nationwide. “
The fight over gay adoption parallels the fight over marriage. Republicans have long fought our right to adopt and have “legitimate “ families. Marriage and adoption to them made us “normal” so they fought it with a passion. #queerpol
