We are so thankful to have @repkarenbass fighting the good fight in DC and in California.
From last weekend’s @demandthevote meeting, @repkarenbass shared advice on how to flip our nearest red district (CA-25) blue and unseat Republican @repsteveknight: Make sure residents of the Antelope Valley know @repsteveknight’s voting record on the issues that matter to them like health care, education and the environment.
@repkarenbass also warned of Republican efforts to vilify and misrepresent black protesters as part of violent "Black Identity Extremist" terror groups. On Tuesday at the House Judiciary oversight hearing, @repkarenbass challenged Attorney General Jeff Sessions on this issue. She said, "You should know that a lot of activists around the country are concerned that we are getting ready to repeat a very sad chapter of our history, where people who are rightfully protesting what they consider to be injustice in their community... are now being targeted and labeled as extremists and going through periods of surveillance and harassment.” @repkarenbass cited a recent FBI report that named groups and individuals being falsely linked to a bigger "Black Identity Extremist" movement. She also had to remind the Attorney General about the existence of the KKK and Alt-Right. She questioned why there wasn't a similar FBI report being circulated about them despite their well-documented, violent, criminal activity. #shero #thisiswhattranslookslike #KarenBass #CivicSundays
