Right now my heart is with George Floyd’s daughter and with his family, and with many others. I want so badly for things to change. Justice must be a reality for people who haven’t ever known it. #BlackLivesMatter

Proud to serve with my friend and chairman @RubenGallego.
.@RubenGallego is an enlisted man to his bones serving in a Congress that has a small vet population of mostly officers. He's a rising progressive with plenty of combat experience. Here's how he's bringing the NCO perspective to Capitol Hill: military.com/daily-news/2021…

My life experiences give me hope for the future. If an Indigenous woman from humble beginnings can be confirmed as Secretary of the @Interior, our country and its promise still holds true for everyone.

I believe we all have a stake in the future of our country, and that everyone shares a common bond: our love for the outdoors and a desire and obligation to keep our nation livable for future generations. Thank you to the Senate ENR Committee for their vote of confidence today.
BREAKING: The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources has voted to move Deb Haaland's Interior nomination to the full U.S. Senate. The vote Thursday included 11 in favor and 9 opposed.

When @maziehirono asked why I want to serve as @Interior Secretary, I shared what my dear friend Albert Shirley, who doesn't have electricity, told me. I carry a profound sense of service with me & will fight for everyone so future generations can thrive in our beautiful country.

Interior Sec. nominee @DebHaalandNM: "This is all of our country, this is our mother. You've heard the earth referred to as mother earth. It’s difficult to not feel obligated to protect this land, and I feel that every Indigenous person in this country understands that."
