I wanted to take a moment to wish you and your family a Happy Father’s Day.
I’m truly blessed to be spending father’s day with my family in Minneapolis, enjoying quality time with my dad and family.
My dad is one of the most optimistic humans I know and I work to channel his energy all the time. On this Father's Day, I hope we can all channel his optimism and push ourselves to work toward progress. As my dad always says, "Your today, doesn't have to determine your tomorrow." And he is right. We must always stay hopeful and never stop organizing for a better tomorrow.
My dad is my rock, he has always been there for me. He taught me resiliency, strength, and the courage to pursue my dreams. I’m thankful because my father has become an amazing grandfather to my three children, carrying the torch and cheering them on in whatever they pursue.
I hope that your Father’s Day is filled with laughter and quality time with friends and family 💕💕 *If today is a hard day for you, for whatever reason, know that I will keep you in my prayers
Ilwad’s birthday trip to Congress included finding the Unicorn 🦄 caucus, lots of ice cream and helping mom be a better member.
Rashida and Ayanna to Ilwad: Do you want to be a member of Congress
Ilwad: I want to be president and run everything 😜
Being a mom and a member of Congress, looks like birthday parties in your office and cupcake stains on your dress. And hopefully a big smile 😜 Join me in wishing happy 7th, birthday to my youngest daughter Ilwad.
Wishing everyone in Minnesota and around the world a Blessed Eid al-Fitr.
May it be filled with love, gratitude and good food.
And may peace reign on you on this blessed day.
Great food, great colleagues, and a great occasion. Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s Congressional Iftar!
We unveiled a Statue of Liberty replica in DC as a reminder to everyone that our immigration policies must be rooted in dignity, human rights, and respect. Thank you @MoveOn, @UnitedWeDream, and @fams2gether for your solidarity and for hosting this event.
The abortion bans happening nationwide are a part of a larger right-wing strategy: Have their bills be blocked by the lower courts in order to get them in front of the Supreme Court and overturn Roe v. Wade. We must fight back.
So many kids like them can now see themselves having a seat at the table. Society often tells women that they can’t have both a career and a family -- I’m happy to work to get rid of this outdated belief whenever I can.
Moms work hard every day, but today is your day! Happy Mother’s Day! Link in bio to read more of my @nytimes interview. Photo by @erinschaff.
