"Two of Donald Trump's top aides have left following allegations of domestic violence yet the President defends these men without ever mentioning the female victims. This is a disgraceful and insulting dismissal of the women's experiences. Trump can express sympathy for men accused of wrongdoing and lament the lack of "due process" yet he can't even muster the slightest compassion for the women who have bravely told their stories? Given the many allegations that have been made against Trump himself when it comes to his treatment of women, it's not exactly shocking he's defending the men. While we may not be surprised by Trump's behavior, we must continue to be outraged by it. We can never allow this to be the new normal. Our daughters and sons deserve a President who values all of our voices, a President who raises his voice with dignity and compassion. Not a President who uses his voice to dismiss and disparage."

H.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a critical component of our nation’s civil rights laws; it prohibits discrimination in employment, public services, public accommodations, and telecommunications against people with disabilities. Instead of doing all we can to strengthen the ADA, this bill takes us in the opposite direction.
