Quoted @eliehonig

New Jersey is a small state but we're offering up Springsteen, Bon Jovi, and Jon Stewart for the Inaugural parade tonight.

Other 49 states, are you really carrying your weight here?

New Jersey. Punching above its weight class since 1787.

A moment of profound progress. Congratulations @KamalaHarris.

Humbled and excited to serve as WH science advisor for President-elect @JoeBiden. He has assembled a diverse team of brilliant scientists and is elevating the role of science. So much to be done, and it will take everyone working together. #Scienceisback!

Brilliant choice. Policy decisions informed by science. Congratulations to @eric_lander for what will now be a cabinet level post.

Some of the brightest young minds in communities of color are disproportionately affected by systemic issues, and the pandemic is making things even worse. If you can, support the #AmericanDreamFund to help these students succeed.

Hope for the future will be built by a new generation of leaders, representing all of America's diversity. Thank you @iamwill for being a driving voice for equity and opportunity in education. @collegetrack

“We will move ahead together as I did & still do every day—one foot after another." @GabbyGiffords with a message we all can benefit from heeding.

Our planet remains wondrous, and mysterious, with so much left to discover and appreciate.

Quoted @DebHaalandNM

A voice like mine has never been a Cabinet secretary or at the head of the Department of Interior.

Growing up in my mother’s Pueblo household made me fierce. I’ll be fierce for all of us, our planet, and all of our protected land.

I am honored and ready to serve.

Congratulations @DebHaalandNM on this historic moment. We welcome a fierce voice for all of our protected land that respects the environment and the legacy of those who first called this continent home.

‘Normal is not what we need. Transformation is what we need’ — @RevDrBarber

2020 was like no other year, but after all that we’ve been through, America cannot move backwards

(In partnership with @emcollective)

Reverend Barber's words forge a path of compassion over cruelty, and community over division.

Merkel truly among the world’s best on solid empathetic leadership. Critical this year.

Merkel will be missed.

So great

Quoted @ThisWeekABC

Surgeon General nominee Dr. Vivek Murthy says he is "endlessly grateful to serve one of the few countries in the world where the grandson of a poor farmer in India could be asked by the president-elect to look out for the health of an entire nation."

America is a land made stronger by immigrants. And their dreams.

Dreamers have hope today, but they deserve a lot more. They need a certainty that they can continue to call America their home.

Quoted @AndreiCherny

The following is a true story. It's an American story. Maybe the most American story.

Stick around to the end.

A remarkable, emotional, and personal story of the promise of America - what it was, is, and can still be.

Quoted @AliMayorkas

When I was very young, the United States provided my family and me a place of refuge. Now, I have been nominated to be the DHS Secretary and oversee the protection of all Americans and those who flee persecution in search of a better life for themselves and their loved ones.

We will have a DHS that builds bridges, not walls. Ali Mayorkas’s historic nomination - 1st Latino and 1st immigrant to head the department - is the leadership America needs.
