Actor Jussie Smollett arrested, accused of lying to Chicago police https://reut.rs/2DZWnnW
Not only is this disheartening news, but I worry it'll make it harder for people of color, especially LGBTQ people of color, to report hate crimes, which we know have been on the rise in recent years.
Just attended an on-campus vigil in remembrance of @NIUlive student Trevor Wehner & alumnus Clayton Parks, who were taken from us in last week’s #AuroraShooting along w/Vicente Juarez, Russell Beyer and Josh Pinkard. This was yet another preventable tragedy—we need to take action
Proud to celebrate the 5-year anniversary of @DMDII and announce continued funding for both @UILABS_ and @DMDII_ alongside @SenatorDurbin, @GovPritzker and @RepHaleyStevens today. As a Veteran, I'm especially thankful DMDII is working to support our servicemembers.
Mr. Wehrum has spent his career putting profits ahead of the health and well-being of his fellow Americans. Stories like this are deeply concerning and are one of the reasons I placed a hold on his nomination.
I wrote to @EPA Assistant Admin Bill Wehrum urging them to update their EtO safety standards, to be more transparent with the public & to begin air quality monitoring in Lake County. We must know how serious of a public health threat these facilities pose. https://www.duckworth.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Letter%20to%20EPA%20Air%20&%20Radiation%20Division%20re%20EtO%20Air%20Monitoring%20in%20Lake%20Co.pdf …
These residents have every right to be outraged: the Trump EPA is letting them down and refusing to take basic steps to determine whether thousands of families are breathing in toxic chemicals every day.
That’s one reason I’m pleased to join @SteveDaines in supporting the bipartisan Fairness for Breastfeeding Mothers Act, which will help ensure new parents will have access to hygienic lactation rooms in all public federal buildings.
Breastfeeding has long-lasting health benefits that protect mothers & children from illnesses. We should continue to build on the progress made by the FAM Act in making it easier for moms & children to find clean & accessible spaces to express breastmilk.
John Glenn inspired our nation’s imagination by being the first American to orbit Earth in the Mercury Friendship 7. 🚀 From Ohio to Orbit to his seat in the Senate, John’s bravery and dedication to service should inspire all of us to shoot for the stars.
It’s a good day for Illinois. A strong minimum wage levels the playing field for businesses who value their workers, helps to boost the economy and can help better support families across our state struggling to scrape by.
75 years ago today, the U.S. gov. adopted Executive Order 9066 which wrongfully interned more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans. This #DayofRemembrance let’s work to finally pass legislation that would ensure a national tragedy like this never happens again.
Sen. Tammy Duckworth calls for ICE investigation of disability discrimination after a Daily Beast report https://trib.al/cx6XKOl
Depriving Victor Valladares Diaz of his prosthetic limbs robbed him of his mobility—& was wrong & unjust. Today, I asked the DHS Acting Inspector General to launch an independent investigation into whether ICE violated its policy by discriminating against people with disabilities
.@SenatorDurbin and I – and our colleagues in the House – will continue to demand @EPA do its job and update its safety standards. And we will push to pass legislation to ensure these kinds of health risks are never hidden from the public again.
“It’s only a temporary shutdown." Willowbrook residents celebrate news Sterigenics' use of ethylene oxide has been stopped, but seek a permanent ban https://trib.al/ZjPs2EI
I support the @ILEPA taking strong actions against Sterigenics. Sterigenics has been exposing its neighbors and its workers to cancer-causing emissions and toxic chemicals while the Trump Administration failed to act, creating a public health emergency.
.@SenDuckworth is calling for an independent investigation into whether ICE violated its policy prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities, after my story exposing how ICE agents deprived a man of his prosthetic limbs for more than five months.
I am proud of these educators for speaking up and demanding their voices be heard. When educators and teachers are given the resources they need - our students succeed. #CICSStrike
Thanks US Senator Tammy Duckworth for coming in to appear on Politics Tonight to talk about the President's declaring a national emergency at the southern… https://www.instagram.com/p/Bt61fczAKWTmPzbYuCcGMizj8CJN3Ii8rnfgXY0/?utm_source=ig_twitter_share&igshid=vfrnknfo83iq …
Joined @ThisWeekABC this morning to discuss how the President’s decision to steal funds from the military and national defense is harmful to our country. Watch here:
