The last time we were in session (May 22-24), we voted on a number of important bills, set up a very busy first week in June, and moved three of my own bills out of committee. It was another busy week, yet not much has made it to the Governor's desk yet. Here's a rundown of some of the critical items from that session week. Read more
It is an unfortunate but unsurprising reality that, according to the CDC, Black Americans are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s than white Americans in the U.S. The same can be said for cancer, diabetes and countless other diseases. Read more
Nelson said, “This legislative package is of vital importance. As hate crimes increase across the country, we must protect those who are most vulnerable. Read more

As springtime blooms and the colors come out all over the 154th District, I paused today to reflect on renewal and the joy that comes from being together with family and friends. We’ve all been through a lot recently, but this time of year always makes me feel that our best days are just on the horizon. For all of those who are celebrating, we wish you a joyous Easter, chag Pesach sameach, and Ramadan Mubarak from my family and the entire staff to you. As we go forth into the warmer weather, let’s celebrate our diversity and remember what unites us. Please have a happy, meaningful, and safe holiday season! Read more
This legislative term has gotten off to a consequential, but admittedly slow start. As we wrap up the first quarter of 2023, the House has only advanced one piece of legislation over to the Senate, the expansion of the statute of limitations for victims of childhood sexual assault. That slow start has now given way to the very deliberative budget process that features a month of department hearings in front of the Appropriations committees of the House and Senate. Read more

I wanted to send you a special, mid-week email to remind you of two events taking place tomorrow, March 16, both of which you are encouraged to attend. Read more
On March 18, 1963, the Supreme Court's decision in Gideon v. Wainwright solidified the centuries-old truth that having adequate legal defense in a criminal trial is not a luxury, but a necessity. Sixty years later, Pennsylvania is still woefully unprepared to represent indigent citizens who lack the funds to hire an attorney. In fact, Pennsylvania is the only state that fails to provide state funding for public defenders and uphold the decision rendered in Gideon. Read more
I know that we have posted the flyer for the last few weeks but do note our upcoming town hall meeting on the March 16. This is our first town hall event, but do not feel like you need to break your neck to get there. We will certainly be having more events like this going forward, where you can ask me questions or seek my support. They will come in large and small venues throughout the district. You might also see me or a member of my team show up at your door this summer to make sure you’re receiving the support you need. Read more
Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809. Frederick Douglass was born into slavery in February, 1817… or maybe 1818. Nobody knows for sure. Those two great men, a President, an abolitionist, white, black, friends and founding fathers, are the inspiration for what became “Negro History Week” in February 1926. Read more
Our office will be closed on Monday, Feb. 20, in observance of Presidents’ Day. Please note that other state-related entities, such as PennDOT, will be closed too. Read more

Nelson. Read more
There are a few important items that I want to elevate to your attention, so this week’s email will begin with a few quick hits.1st & Goal: After the special elections in three Allegheny County legislative districts this week and a special state Senate election last week, the Democratic party will hold a narrow but clear majority in the state House as we return to session on February 21. This will have a meaningful impact on my ability to advance legislation and ensure that the needs and desires of our community are highlighted in our committee work. Read more
I am certainly biased, but I believe that great communities must have great places to eat! We’re blessed to have a wide variety of restaurants and fast-food spots in this district offered by entrepreneurs and family-run businesses. Read more

Imagine the persistence that is required to overcome systemic oppression. Could you imagine the indominable strength that is needed to survive excessive force? When loved ones are lost to the violent abuse of power, how we remember and honor them becomes the lasting legacy that makes sense out of senseless brutality. Read more
