Kirsten Gillibrand said ( about Tammy Duckworth ) : “The events of January 6, the attack in Atlanta, the near-daily reports of anti-Semitic graffiti, and the continued rise of attacks against Asian Americans throughout the pandemic should be a wakeup call to the urgent need to tackle domestic violent extremism in this country. We all have a responsibility to step up and loudly condemn violence against Asian Americans — and the bigoted language which fuels it,” “I am proud to join Senators Hirono and Duckworth to condemn all forms of anti-Asian sentiment. It is critical that Congress immediately act to remove dangers, target white supremacists, and take the necessary steps to keep Americans safe” External link

Kirsten Gillibrand said ( about Raoul Ruiz ) : “More than three million service members could have been exposed to toxic burn pits, yet the VA continues to deny them care by placing the burden of proof on veterans suffering from rare cancers, lung diseases, and respiratory illnesses,” “Congress cannot sit by as the VA ignores its duty. The bottom line is that our veterans served our country, they are sick and they need health care—period. The Presumptive Benefits for War Fighters Exposed to Burn Pits and Other Toxins Act will finally establish a presumptive service connection for veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxins and streamline the process for obtaining vital VA benefits. I am proud to cosponsor this bipartisan legislation with Senator Rubio, and I thank Congressman Ruiz for his leadership in the House. I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support this bill and to apply common sense and common decency to a broken process” External link

Kirsten Gillibrand said : “We know that what happens outside the classroom affects how well students do inside the classroom. If a student is hungry or dealing with a challenge at home, it’s harder to focus, harder to learn, harder to succeed. Education experts predict the pandemic will lead to learning loss in math and in reading. Especially for students who are already behind and widen the achievement gap. That’s why the work of community schools like Dr. Weeks elementary have never been more important,” External link
