On #BlackLivesMatter:
Our policy agendas fly in the face of critics who say [the Black Lives Matter movement] lacks specificity regarding our goals. The real question is whether legislators and policy advocates are prepared to seriously engage with our policies and recommended courses of action.
We've [black people] been through so much for so many centuries, and we shall overcome this too.
The lives of Black queer and trans-folks, disabled folks, Black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum matter.

On Donald Trump:
I think that people are saying, 'Mr. Trump, we have come too far in this country fighting discrimination and bigotry. We’re not going back. And if you’re going to continue that effort, you’re going to have to take us on.'

[Student protesters] putting themselves out there so publicly, with their future on the line, is worthy of adult support.

We need to raise our voices, but we do not need to indulge in hate.
