    Walter Mondale will be remembered as someone who fought for civil rights & equality. He elevated women by selecting Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate, making her the 1st woman on a major-party ticket.

    I had the distinct pleasure of meeting both.

    May he Rest In Peace. https://t.co/amZ08V4ed2

    My late friend, the first American woman in space, Sally Ride, and the great poet Maya Angelou will be the first two women honored by the US Mint on their 2022 'American Women' quarter collection.

    Sports are a microcosm of society.

    When athletes use their platforms to show up, stand up, and speak up, they demonstrate to fans that everyone can help to make the world a more equal place. https://t.co/DYzVfXg9xb

    A special night across #MLB as we pay tribute to Jackie Robinson on the day 74 years ago when he broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier.

    What an honor to meet his niece, Kathy Robinson, at Dodger Stadium.

    On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

    His #42 jersey was retired by #MLB in 1997.

    Today, it’s important to pause and reflect on the 6 million innocent lives lost to the brutality of the Nazis as a result of anti-semitism & hate.

    We must fight these same evils today, and vow to ensure this never happens again.
