Scheduled to meet with Rep Keith Ellison, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator John McCain next week and various members of congress on social issues and plans for the next 2 years. I'm fascinated to see what the atmosphere will be like in light of today's drama on Capitol hill.

Just heard Fed chair Yellin praise WA for taking lead on workforce initiatives. Tomorrow part of my day on Capitol Hill is lobbying to preserve community block grants and expand programs for communities of color as we demand a #JustEconomy

Reviewing Trump budget in a session with several core constituency groups tonight. This is not good. This is very bad. This is not Clinton's fault. This is not Sanders fault. This is not the DNC's fault. This is outright war on our core values as people and as a party. Ill have more details soon about the hundreds of agencies set to be dismantled and how this will hurt the most vulnerable Americans.
