Last August, instead of going back to school at the start of the new academic year, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg took a backpack, some snacks, and a sign she'd made that read "School Strike for Climate" and settled in on the sidewalk outside the parliament building in Stockholm. At the end of a summer of record-breaking heat and increasingly alarming news from the scientific community, she was there to protest her government's lack of action on climate. ⁣ ⁣ She eventually went back to her classes, but still goes on strike every Friday—and she's not alone anymore. ⁣ ⁣ What began as one young woman's protest has become a global movement. Last Friday, young people in every corner of the globe—South Africa, Japan, India, the United States—demanded a livable future for their generation. ⁣ ⁣ “Change is on the horizon," Thunberg has said. "But to see that change we also have to change ourselves.” She's right. Let's get to it. #climatestrike #FridaysForFuture ⁣ ⁣ Photos: @NYTimes

I had the most wonderful visit in Harlem yesterday with my friend Dr. Gao Yaojie, who's simply one of the bravest people I know. As a practicing physician in the China in the 1990s, Dr. Gao discovered that HIV/AIDS was being transmitted to patients via blood transfusions. When she worked to put a stop to the practice and alert the public, the government put her under house arrest. She gained political asylum in the U.S. in 2009 and is now an American citizen. We've met many times over the years, including my first trip to China as secretary of state, and it's a joy to be able to visit right here in New York City.

We're at a crisis point for our democracy. It's too hard for too many people to vote. Money has too much influence in our system, giving wealthy donors too much say over policy-making. And the gerrymandering of congressional districts means that some voters are effectively disenfranchised. ⁣ ⁣ The good news: Last week, House Democrats passed the most important democracy reform package in a generation. ⁣ ⁣ HR1, the For the People Act, includes: ⁣ ⁣ - Automatic voter registration⁣ - Early voting everywhere⁣ - Public financing for elections⁣ - An end to the gerrymandering of congressional districts⁣ ⁣ Our democracy should work for every citizen of America, and it hasn't for a very long time. As the For the People Act moves on to the Senate, take a moment to call your senators and ask them to support it: (202) 224-3121⁣ ⁣ Photo: J. Scott Applewhite/AP

For #internationalwomensday, I'm issuing you a challenge. We know that when women run for office, they're elected at the same rate as men. But not as many women run as men, often because people don't ask women to run as often as they ask men.⁣ ⁣ My challenge for you is this. Think of a woman you know who should run for office. Then take a moment today to ask her to do it. Tell her she'll have help from @emergeamerica, @emilys_list, @runforsomethingnow, and you. With one question, you could start something pretty big.

Today marks 54 years since Bloody Sunday, when civil rights marchers bled on the Edmund Pettus bridge in Alabama to demand voting rights for all. We need, starting right now, to redouble our efforts with a 21st-century civil rights movement devoted to claiming, enforcing, and defending the right to vote—once and for all.

Three generations, one set of steps. ⁣ ⁣ “There’s so much in ‘Wonderful World’ that brings me back to my neighborhood where I live in Corona, New York,” Louis Armstrong said in 1968. ⁣ ⁣ The house Armstrong lived in during the last 28 years of his life is remarkably well-preserved. A lot of luck and wrangling went into saving it. Bessie Williams, the Armstrongs' longtime housekeeper, became its first preserver. In 1977, the house was designated a National Historic Landmark. In 1999, as first lady, I started a National Park Service program called Save America's Treasures that put grant money toward preserving it. In 2017, workers broke ground on a new education center that will open across the street this fall. And in 2019, the youngest-ever woman in Congress, @Ocasio2018, stopped by and encouraged NY14 and beyond to visit.⁣ ⁣ It's a wonderful world. You can find it in Queens. @louisarmstronghouse

I was so honored to participate in the Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee this weekend to mark the 54th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when civil rights marchers nonviolently protesting voter suppression were attacked by state troopers on the Edmund Pettus bridge in Alabama.⁣ ⁣ Today, hard-fought civil rights are being stripped back. We are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy. ⁣ ⁣ We aren't going to win every fight. Take that from me. But history does teach us that when the struggle feels the hardest is when marching forward is most important. ⁣ ⁣ That's why we need to redouble our efforts with a 21st-century civil rights movement devoted to claiming, enforcing, and defending our right to vote—once and for all.⁣ ⁣ Photo: Matt Viser/Washington Post

You may not know her name, but you know her work and her legacy. Ella Baker was a fixture in the fight for civil rights for 50 years, playing a central role in three pivotal groups: the NAACP, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.⁣ ⁣ She was born in 1903 in Norfolk, Virginia, and grew up listening to her grandmother's recollections of life under slavery. After graduating college as a valedictorian, she threw herself into social justice and became the national director of the Young Negroes Cooperative League, then a field secretary and director of the NAACP.⁣ ⁣ She pushed always for grassroots organizing and participatory democracy, using a gift of listening and strategic savvy to go from town to town helping communities wage campaigns against the segregation of public spaces, lynching, and voter suppression.⁣ ⁣ Later, as a leader who helped shape SCLC and SNCC, she organized students to register black voters and challenge Jim Crow with nonviolent action. She had a talent for recognizing and training people who would go on to lead themselves, which led to her nickname: "Fundi," a Swahili word describing someone who teaches a craft to the next generation. She remained active in the civil rights movement until her death in 1986.⁣ ⁣ "This may only be a dream of mine," she once said of young people becoming leaders of the civil rights movement, "but I think it can be made real." She made it real. #blackhistory

The National @DomesticWorkers Alliance has worked to protect domestic workers, immigrants, women, and their families for more than a decade, and I'm proud to say that NDWA has joined @OnwardTogether as an official partner. Since last summer, Onward Together has raised more than $1.8 million for the groups working to protect the kids and families separated by ICE, including Families Belong Together, NDWA's initiative to fight the Trump administration's family separation policy. I met with @aijenp and @chasinggarza to talk about ways we could continue working together, and a partnership was born. We have many fights ahead—from reuniting separated families to making sure the workers who care for families and homes across the country are treated with dignity and respect. I hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about NDWA and their mission at @domesticworkers or domesticworkers.org.

The administration just put a gag rule in place that bars Title X health care providers from referring patients for safe and legal abortions. Title X is the one program meant to make sure that people with low incomes can access birth control and other essential reproductive health care, and Planned Parenthood serves 41 percent of the 4 million people who rely on Title X health centers. That's 1.6 million patients who may not be able to afford care anywhere else. ⁣ ⁣ Join me in saying you stand with @PlannedParenthood—and against an administration that has no business making decisions about women's health care. #IStandWithPP #NoGagRule

A year ago today, public school teachers in West Virginia went on strike to protest the fact that they had some of the lowest salaries for educators in the country. After two weeks, they won a 5% raise—and set off a movement. Teachers picketed in Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Oklahoma last year, often winning pay increases and other improvements in working conditions. The teachers' strikes of 2018 are some of the most important labor victories in more than a century, and we should note it's a movement that's majority women. Brava.⁣ ⁣ Photo: Chris Dorst/Charleston Gazette-Mail

On February 18, 1943, Sophie Scholl, her brother Hans, and their friend Christoph were arrested for distributing anti-Nazi literature at their university in Munich. It was the early days of opposition to Hitler within Germany. At the Scholls' show trial, the judge didn't give the defendants a chance to speak. So Sophie yelled. ⁣ ⁣ “Somebody had to make a start,” she shouted. “What we wrote and said is also believed by many others. They just don’t dare express themselves as we did.” ⁣ ⁣ She and her brother were executed a few days later. Their words lived on. A copy of their final leaflet was smuggled out of the country and reprinted in the UK as "The Manifesto of the Students of Munich." A few months after the Scholl siblings died, Allied planes dropped millions of copies over Germany. ⁣ ⁣ Today, Sophie is known within Germany as a hero who stood up for what was right with unflinching bravery. She should be better known outside of it, too.

A year ago today, 17 families lost loved ones to gun violence that should never have happened. A community lost friends, teammates, and beloved coaches. ⁣ ⁣ We must remember and reaffirm that gun violence is not an intractable problem. We will not accept it. We know what to do to solve it. @MomsDemand, @Everytown, @marchforourlives, and so many others are making progress every day. ⁣ ⁣ Just yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee voted to advance a measure that would require background checks for all gun sales and most gun transfers in the country. Rep. @LucyMcBath, who lost a child to gun violence, cast her vote by saying: "For my son Jordan Davis, I vote aye." ⁣ ⁣ Join a cause today, support a gun-sense candidate, or find another way to pitch in. We can save lives, honor victims, and give too many grieving communities the knowledge that "Never again" means "Never again."

It was such a joy to join @georgetown_sfs and Georgetown Politics for a symposium on the future of diplomacy, 10 years after becoming secretary of state and in the 100th anniversary year of Georgetown's School of Foreign Service. ⁣ ⁣ Ambassador Bill Burns asked me what I'd say to young people who are considering public service in such a challenging time for the world. ⁣ ⁣ My answer: Now is truly one of the most exciting times to be looking at a career in public service and, in particular, in diplomacy. And we need the energy, imagination, and skills of the next generation. ⁣ ⁣ There's a lot of hard work that has to be done, but there's also a lot of room for imagination. Get in the arena.

Captain Rosemary Mariner's career was full of firsts. She began flying planes at just 15 years old and was the first woman in Purdue University's aeronautics program. She wanted to become a commercial airline pilot, but that career wasn't an option for women in 1972. She heard there were opportunities in the U.S. Navy, and a career was born. ⁣ ⁣ She became the Navy's first female jet pilot in 1975 and one of the first women to serve on a Navy warship in 1982. Eight years after that, she became the first woman to command a military aviation squadron. ⁣ ⁣ As Captain Mariner broke down barriers, she helped forge a path for other women to become aviators. She organized her fellow women servicemembers to put pressure on Congress to end restrictions on women flying combat missions, an important milestone in ending institutional discrimination against women. ⁣ ⁣ Captain Mariner died in late January at the age of 65 from ovarian cancer. At her memorial service this past weekend, she was honored with a flyover honoring her legacy: all the pilots in the formation were women. What a tribute to a pioneer.

The first law that Bill signed into effect, 26 years ago this week, was the Family and Medical Leave Act. He made it a priority because he believed that no one should lose their job because they need time to care for a family member, welcome a new child, or recover from illness themselves. The FMLA allows employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave. Twenty-six years on, it's clear that it was necessary then and that we need more protections for workers and families now—including paid family and sick leave for everyone. If you agree, let your members of Congress know!

A Chicago real estate broker, Candice Payne, heard that more than 100 people experiencing homelessness would be without a place to stay in temperatures well below freezing last week. She made what she called a "spur-of-the-moment" decision to help. She and her husband rented 30 hotel rooms and rallied their community to volunteer cars and vans to help transport families to warmth. No one in the richest country on earth should be without a home. But as we work toward that future, what a wonderful example of someone taking it upon themselves to do the most good.

When Ida B. Wells was 20 years old, she bought a first-class train ticket to get from Memphis, Tennessee, to her job as a teacher in Woodstock. When the train conductor came to punch tickets, he told her she was in the wrong car. She knew exactly which car she was in, and it was not the wrong one. ⁣ ⁣ He insisted that she move to the blacks-only carriage—and when he "tried to drag me out of the seat," Wells wrote in her autobiography, "I fastened my teeth in the back of his hand." ⁣ ⁣ It was just the beginning of a life of not bearing injustice quietly, but fighting with all her might against it. ⁣ ⁣ She became one of the most admired women of her time as a journalist, anti-lynching activist, and one of the founders of the NAACP. #blackhistory

Lilly Ledbetter has said that equal pay "is not just about pay. It has always been about calling out how our workplaces value women less." She called out her mistreatment at Goodyear Tire, where she was paid 50% less than men doing the same job, through years of activism. Her work culminated in President Obama signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law 10 years ago today, with Lilly standing at his right shoulder as he did it. Happy anniversary, and let's keep going.

In the months since Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, our fellow Americans have overcome not just wind and water but also the Trump administration's shamefully inadequate response to the disaster. Visiting farms and small businesses in Puerto Rico this week to see progress on @ClintonGlobal Initiative commitments, we saw how nonprofits and grantmakers have come together to expand farming operations, plant trees, and re-open small businesses. @chefjoseandres and his wonderful @wckitchen team are helping farmers like Franco and Natalia Medina upgrade to innovative farming techniques and renewable energy as part of a CGI "Plow to Plate" commitment. It's just one story among thousands of resilient people working hard to pick up the pieces. The federal government should still do more. Rolls of paper towels aren't enough.
