This morning, it was great to join @RepMullin to discuss our work empowering communities and fighting the external factors that harm our health and wellness.

Thank you to @Aligning4Health and @RISEhlth for hosting this incredible discussion!

We are thrilled to be hearing from two of the current co-leads of the bipartisan Congressional Social Determinants of Health Caucus, @RepCheri & @RepMullin, at the #SDoHPolicyForum22! We applaud the Caucus' dedication to advancing bipartisan solutions to address SDOH in Congress.

I was excited to join my colleague and friend @RepLoisFrankel at the enrollment ceremony with @SpeakerPelosi for her #SpeakOut Act. This bill builds on my #EndForcedArbitration law and is one step closer to @POTUS’ desk!

My heart is heavy today after hearing that my colleague, Congressman Donald McEachin, passed away last night.

Rep. McEachin was a good man & a fearless leader to the people of Virginia & the U.S. for over 26 years. My thoughts are with his loved ones and staff mourning his loss.

Today I begin my final local media tour in Northwest and Central Illinois! While bittersweet, I’m excited to meet with our local reporters to discuss my 10 years in service.

Stay tuned for updates! 🧵

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

Today, I'm thankful to have my family together for the holidays & to see my grandkids grow & play.

And I'm forever grateful for the people in NW & Central IL who've put their faith in a Heartland native to bring their voices to ...DC for the last decade.

So very proud of my husband, who I met when I was a rookie reporter & he was a rookie cop. He signed off on the air for the last time today after 40 years in law enforcement — 38 with the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Office. He has served our community with dignity & respect. ❤️

I’m heartbroken waking up to the news of another mass shooting, this time at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, two days before Thanksgiving.

Enough is enough. This is the 606th mass shooting of the year and the 31st in just the last 22 days.

Breaking News: Multiple people were shot and killed inside a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, according to a police spokesman. The shooter was found dead at the store. https://nyti.ms/3i5sxGj

Wishing the happiest of birthdays to my dear friend and mentor @SenatorDurbin! 🎈

I'm so grateful that I've gotten to work alongside you in Congress and see the difference you make every day for the people of Illinois.
