I was dating a man 19, I was 17. We had consensual sexual experiences together.
We went to dinner, movies, & 1 night he forced himself on me. 1/4
I lived at home, my mom was out. We were in my bedroom. I knew him for months. What began as kissing, escalated a bit further, but I had wanted to call it a night. He wouldn't take no for an answer. He threw me down on my bed, & pinned my arms behind my head. 2/4

This lawsuit is currently being heard. This is what it means to YOUR healthcare if Kavanaugh is confirmed. #ProtectOurCare#WhatsAtStake (THREAD)1/15
These are the Republican state attorneys general and governors from 20 states that filed the lawsuit in February 2018 in the U.S. Northern District of Texas.
On the 17 Anniversary of #September11th, 2001. I wanted to share my story.
I was born & raised in Manhattan. When I was young, I loved going to the Twin Towers, they were a magical place for me.
Being 100 stories high and seeing the whole island of Manhattan was amazing.
I was at work. At the time, I was working for NBC and had an office with a TV. I came in that bright, blue-sky crystal clear morning early to catch-up on some work. At 9am someone came running into my office and told me to turn on my Television.

On 7/27/17, the day of the #SkinnyRepeal Vote-A-Rama, I went to DC to meet with any Senate office that would listen to my healthcare story. I was terrified of #ACA repeal.
I had 8 spontaneous meetings that day.
At 515pmET I met w/@SenJohnMcCain Legislative Assistant. 1/5 @SenJohnMcCain's LA began to cry when I told her I had #Lupus (turned out her friend has it). She apologized & explained her friend had to move from DC, to a climate more conducive to the disease. But now she didn't have the same care. So I provided resources to help. 2/5

On the 8th Anniversary of #ACA it's crucial to demonstrate how our President has undermined healthcare for MILLIONS via #ACASabotage since his inauguration.
This THREAD is dedicated to everyone who used their voice to save healthcare & why we all must be a #HealthCareVoter 1/30
1/20/17: Trump's #ACA Executive Order directs federal agencies begin ❌ ACA “to maximum extent permitted by law.”
EO delays ACA provisions imposing tax, fee, or other costs & develops “free & open market” in health care among states.
