Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Congresswoman for NY-14 (the Bronx & Queens). In a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. Jun. 02, 2019 1 min read

Hey everyone - I was super excited to march in Queens Pride today, but sadly I came down with a really bad cold this weekend and won’t be able to make it 😭

Our organizers will be marching + tabling at the festival with resources for the community. Celebrate extra for me! 💕🌈

Also, we‘re premiering our new eco-friendly, no-plastic buttons today! (Don’t have to buy ‘em, they’re yours to enjoy for celebrating!) The texture is kind of soft, strangely enough.

This is a photo a supporter sent because her cat kept trying to pet herself with it 😂

Sorry - should clarify!

They’re yours to pick up at Queens Pride and our Pride events all month.

(Fun fact: we sometimes make limited edition campaign swag solely for in-person events, for people who organize. 🐣 but if there’s interest, we can put these buttons in the shop)

You can follow @AOC.
