Congratulations to my two term neighborhood hope dealing brother, @jewelljonesmi! So proud of and honored to know you! Keep on working hard #ForThePeople in Michigan and beyond. Big #HOLLA! #BMCMovement
Yesterday was Herstory Making in so many ways! The glass ceiling continues to shatter as women, especially black women rise to elected power. FL may not have Brought It Home this year, but we passed Amendment 4. Then NY elected Letitia James as the 1st Black Attorney General and Alexandria Cortez as the youngest Congresswoman. Today is still a very good day! #YourVoteMatters #BMCMovement
Of course I voted, i’m a Delta. In April I was all set to switch my registration to NY, but Gillum. I am so proud that I had the chance to grab ‘em by the #Midterms and vote to #BringItHome. I voted early by mail and even paid express shipping to make sure my ballot arrived on time with proof of delivery. Have you voted? #GoVote #Nov6 #YourVoteMatters #StopVoterSuppression #iVoted #BMCMovement #HistoryMakers #GatorsforGillum
