Just a dozen to go

Joe Kennedy for Massachusetts     Hey –  I have some (potentially) very exciting news about on our end-of-quarter fundraising push: With just a couple more hours to go, we're only 12 grassroots donations away from hitting our very first quarterly goal in this campaign! That's awesome. W…

My hope and my concern about this race

Joe Kennedy for Massachusetts     As I prepared to run for the Senate, I talked to hundreds of working people over the last few months, and I heard the message loud and clear: It's time to restore government by the people, for the people. Since the disastrous Citizens United decision …

No wonder so many Americans feel like their voices aren't heard.

Joe Kennedy for Congress     Whether it's fair wages or civil rights or freedom from gun violence or access to basic health care: our government is not meeting its people's basic needs. In some cases—certainly where President Trump is involved—that government is actively exploiting an…

"Go die somewhere else."

Joe Kennedy for Congress     This week, we learned that Donald Trump has escalated his inhumane attacks on the immigrant community. Our movement has identified a group of nonprofits leading the fight to end Trump's violations of the law and human rights, and to support the families he…

Let me know what you think: My thoughts on the U.S. Senate in 2020.

Joe Kennedy for Congress       I hope you're having a great summer and getting a little break before fall kicks in. I wanted to take a minute to check in — and to make sure you're hearing directly from me about my plans for 2020.   Over the past few weeks I've begun to consider a ru…

Solutions, not scapegoats

Joe Kennedy for Congress     If Republican leaders are talking about mental health, it's generally for one reason — to avoid talking about guns. And so, after this weekend's massacres in El Paso and Dayton, the GOP went on TV to lament America's broken mental health system. Unfortuna…

The rest of us must step up right now

Joe Kennedy for Congress     On Monday, Attorney General William Barr announced that fear of persecution and terror against one's family is no longer a basis to seek asylum in the United States. Essentially, this administration has announced to people worldwide, "If your family is in d…

Fickle cruelty

Joe Kennedy for Congress     Two weeks ago, Donald Trump announced his plan to shatter the lives of millions of immigrant families with a massive, multi-city raid – the stuff of fascist nightmares. Then, with less than 24 hours to go, he declared that he'd called the raids off. For no…

Hot air, exaggerated promises, and lies

Joe Kennedy for Congress     Donald Trump has made this very clear during his time in office: He really, really wants to take health care away from working families. Our movement has stood strong as he, along with Republicans in Congress and statehouses across the country, have come …

A different form of abuse

Joe Kennedy for Congress   Yesterday, I visited detention facilities in Clint and El Paso with a group of my colleagues, and the situation is dire: Our government is still tearing families apart, packing people into concrete-floored cells, denying them basic necessities, telling them to d…

Thoughts on impeachment:

Joe Kennedy for Congress     After reading every page of the Mueller Report, it's clear to me that the President of the United States repeatedly obstructed the federal investigation into Russian attacks on our elections. The time has come for the House to begin impeachment proceedings a…
