I am proud of our diversity, and when you attack the federal workforce, you are having significant impact on women - many of whom are single moms working to support their family - and you're having a significant impact on communities of color.

Some suggestions for you :

Civil rights activists and union activists shared not just common values and objectives but also common enemies.

Budgets are moral documents. They reflect the values of any government and when you're compromising clean air, clean water, and lead, you're making a statement about communities you don't care about.

The King Holiday is a celebration of many things - his pursuit of racial justice, his commitment to non-violent resistance, his belief in service and doing for others. But you might also call it the other Labor Day.

King had come to Memphis to lend his moral authority to the struggle of striking municipal sanitation workers who were overwhelmingly African-American. They earned poverty wages, endured degrading working conditions, and faced brutal beatings when they tried to organize.

The United States is one of the few nations on the planet where paid family and medical leave or earned sick time is not the law of the land.

Everything has changed in recent decades - the economy, technology, cultural attitudes, the demographics of the workforce, the role of women in society, and the structure of the American family. It's about time our laws caught up. We watch 'Modern Family' on television, but we're still living by 'Leave It To Beaver' rules.

Donald Trump, you don't stand for our values.

I think public sector workers, our teachers, our firefighters, our home health workers who work for states, they do God's work. They are some of our most important employees.

You can't eat cake and lose weight.

You're more likely to see someone fatally struck by lightning than witness a case of in-person voter fraud.

The 3.5 million people in Puerto Rico are American citizens. They deserve fair and equal treatment as Americans.

You can't show up at a church every 4 October and say, 'Vote for me,' and call that persuasion.

The Democratic Party has learned from the terrible mistakes of the past. Our platform requires that we honor, fulfill, and strengthen the federal government's trust responsibility to American Indians. We take this responsibility seriously.

Hillary Clinton is about 'we.' Donald Trump is about 'me.'
