New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker told an audience to “get up in the face of some congresspeople” while speaking at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness in Washington, D.C., Wednesday.

“Before I end, that’s my call to action here,” Booker said. “Please don’t just come here today and then go home. Go to the Hill today and get up in the face of some congresspeople.”

His comments about getting in congresspeople’s faces echoes rhetoric from California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, who said that “Americans should be out in the streets screaming to the top of their voice” on CNBC Wednesday.

Booker’s comments at the conference come after he called supporters of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh “complicit in evil” during a speech on Tuesday. He also quoted “the Psalms” in the speech.

Booker has served as the junior senator from New Jersey since 2013.
