Happy #HispanicHeritageMonth! (🎨 by @_germangonzalez for @latinovoices.) From Ellen Ochoa, the first Latinx astronaut in space, to Ivy Queen, the “First Lady of Reggaeton,” we love these illustrations of Latinx history makers who have shaped the world as we know it.

Even after 3 hours of Thursday's #DemDebate, the 2019 primary debate moderators have asked: 0 questions on sexual harassment policy, 0 questions on childcare, and 0 questions on paid family & medical leave. These issues impact millions of Americans. We deserve to hear candidates address them. #TIMESUP2020
To tonight's #DemDebate moderators: Ask our presidential candidates a long overdue question about sexual harassment at work. Read more from our Chief Policy Officer Jen Klein and @GretchenCarlson through the link in our stories. #TIMESUP2020 cc: @gstephanopoulos @davidmuirabc @linseytdavis @jorgeramosnews

A reminder for anyone who needs it. ➡️ If you have experienced sexual assault, harassment or related retaliation in the workplace, you are not alone: the #TIMESUP Legal Defense Fund can provide you with legal support. For all requests of assistance, fill out an intake form at the link in bio.
Harassment and discrimination thrive in silence and secrecy. The #BEHEARD in the Workplace Act would change that, and ensure every worker is safe to speak out about harassment or abuse on the job. It would: ✔️strengthen understanding of workplace harassment & help businesses prevent it ✔️protect workers who come forward ✔️expand basic civil rights protections to ALL workers ✔️help ensure transparency ✔️eliminate the tipped wage.
