Alexis McGill Johnson & Nathalie Rayes: The Senate Must Quickly Confirm Xavier Becerra
Becerra is a health care champion and a staunch supporter of sexual and reproductive rights. After weeks of obstruction, the Senate must swiftly confirm Becerra as secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) so he can get to work on behalf of the American people.

Those who came before us believed that access to the ballot box would give us the power to validate our humanity as equal to white people’s. But we are still so, so far from equality. And we are still not being heard.
