Ayanna Pressley said ( about Joseph Biden ) : “Our nation continues to be in the midst of a public health and economic crisis, with countless families in Massachusetts and all across the country at risk of eviction,” “With the pandemic worsening daily, we have a moral and collective responsibility to use every tool available to provide relief and support to our communities. While I was encouraged to see President-Elect Biden call for Congress to extend the eviction moratorium as part of his rescue plan, he must also take executive action to extend and strengthen the eviction moratorium for the duration of the pandemic. Doing so would help prevent a nationwide eviction tsunami that would disproportionately harm our most vulnerable neighbors. We must act with the urgency this crisis demands” External link

As transportation agencies in my district and across the country face record budget shortfalls due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we must act swiftly to make the investments in public transit our communities deserve by establishing real funding parity.

Ayanna Pressley said : "And we don’t”. A vivid reminder of the stakes came in early 2017, when Vice President Mike Pence tweeted an image showing politicians around a conference table negotiating health care changes, including a repeal of mandatory maternity care. Every politician at the table was a white man. Representation matters, Democratic women candidates argued the next year, and voters took heed. The 2018 midterms ushered in the most diverse Congress in history and boosted women’s representation to 23.7 percent. Four years after Trump’s election, women hold 127 seats in Congress, up from 105. Massachusetts now has four women in its 11-member congressional delegation, including newcomers Lori Trahan and Pressley. Ayanna Pressley spoke as, Ilhan Abdullahi Omar (D-MN)(L), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) (2R), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) held a press conference, to address remarks made by President Trump on July 15, 2019 at the Capitol.

Ayanna Pressley said : “The power of diversity and representation is not so that we can applaud this progress; it is not for celebratory moments on the symbolism alone — although that is significant, anytime we make gains and strides in real life with leadership parity when it comes to gender and race — but to me it is really about what happens in those policy-making rooms, because we have seen the impact of policies that are developed by completely homogenized, monolithic viewpoint,” External link

Ayanna Pressley said : "And we don’t”. A vivid reminder of the stakes came in early 2017, when Vice President Mike Pence tweeted an image showing politicians around a conference table negotiating health care changes, including a repeal of mandatory maternity care. Every politician at the table was a white man. Representation matters, Democratic women candidates argued the next year, and voters took heed. The 2018 midterms ushered in the most diverse Congress in history and boosted women’s representation to 23.7 percent. Four years after Trump’s election, women hold 127 seats in Congress, up from 105. Massachusetts now has four women in its 11-member congressional delegation, including newcomers Lori Trahan and Pressley. Ayanna Pressley spoke as, Ilhan Abdullahi Omar (D-MN)(L), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) (2R), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) held a press conference, to address remarks made by President Trump on July 15, 2019 at the Capitol. BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/Getty Images. This election cycle, a record 298 female US House candidates made it to the ballot, including a record 115 women of color, according to CAWP. The number of Black women running for the House rose from 27 in 2016 to 61 in 2020, a record high, according to CAWP. The flip side is backlash. Despite their growing numbers, women in politics continue to be targets of derision and harassment. Pressley, one of the four celebrated women of color in their first term in Congress who called themselves “The Squad,” faced verbal attacks from the president and online vitriol. “Unfortunately it’s been part of our experience as women, and that didn’t stop because we have a comma and a title after our name," External link
