I’m joining @EdTrust & education leaders on Wednesday to discuss my #BooksSaveLives Act and our fight against book bans nationwide.

Everyone deserves to see themselves reflected in our literature and to learn #HonestHistory.

RSVP now: https://edtrust.org/cant-be-erased-rally-against-book-bans/.
Wishing all #BostonMarathon runners good luck!

And holding space for those still healing from the trauma of the attack 11 years ago.

I’m grateful for our city’s unity & urge folks to come together for acts of kindness — & if necessary, seek out the help you need. #OneBostonDay
With this news, hundreds of thousands more borrowers will see meaningful relief.

Everyone has a right to read, learn, & see themselves reflected in our literature.

This #NationalLibraryWeek, I’m giving librarians their well-deserved flowers & continuing to fight against book bans nationwide.

Congress must pass my #BooksSaveLives Act to do just that.
Community colleges like @BHCCBoston and @SeeRoxburyCC help over 10 million students earn a degree each year.

Their impacts stretch far beyond the classroom, and we must invest in them like the public good that they are.

Happy National Community College Month!
💰We secured over $13 million in federal funding for community projects across the #MA7.

So far we’ve brought home over $35 million to build a more just & equitable district.

I’m proud to partner with municipalities & grassroots orgs to continue delivering for our communities.
