    RT @JenniferJJacobs: “I don’t want to scare anybody here but understand the facts: we’re likely to lose another 250,000 people, dead, between now and January, because people aren’t paying attention,” Biden said during an economic round table on coronavirus pandemic.

    RT @mathbabedotorg: I gave Google the benefit of the doubt re: AI ethics and fairness entirely because of the existence of Timnit’s team and the work they do there, knowing she and others are outspoken advocates and activists.

    Now that she’s been fired, I’d argue Google no longer deserves it.

    RT @nunuska: @timnitGebru is the reason so many of us joined. She is also the reason we had a voice and representation. Incredible collaborator and amazing leader. I am deeply grateful to have worked with you, Timnit… it’s been a lesson in integrity.

    RT @mcmillen: When I announced I was resigning from Google, my skip-level manager (& HR) accelerated my departure from what I’d agreed upon with my manager. But it’s unconscionable to fire someone by misconstruing an email as an intent to resign immediately. #ISupportTimnit #BelieveBlackWomen

    RT @blahtino: @timnitGebru’s incredible work and leadership was a major force that attracted me to this job. POC take note when leadership mistreats fellow POC

    RT @vinodkpg: Woke up to this terrible news! @timnitGebru co-built an amazing interdisciplinary team that I am proud to be a part of. She brought together so many important voices to this apace. Above all, she’s a fantastic caring leader & manager. I’m confused and shocked at what’s happened.

    RT @RashidaTlaib: 14 million. 

    That’s how many people could be kept out of poverty by two or more rounds of stimulus checks, according to @urbaninstitute.

    The next Covid-19 relief bill must include direct payments to people.

    RT @SolNataMD: We are also clear – FL has NO plan. Traveler nurses & RTs left long time ago. We are constantly short staffed at baseline. Leadership failure since the beginning. It would be wise to plan disaster response instead of denying potential crisis & banning masks.
