The confirmation of Jeff Sessions to serve as the next U.S. Attorney General does not change the fact that he is unfit to serve in this powerful position. Throughout his long public career, Sessions has praised the gutting of the Voting Rights Act, defended President Trump’s misogynistic comments, and voted against the Matthew Shephard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. As Attorney General of Alabama, he prosecuted African Americans for helping African Americans vote. His actions, past and future, should concern all those who care about our democracy. 


We won’t stop fighting


Now that Sessions is Attorney General, it becomes even more important that we remain vigilant in the defense of civil and human rights. The Attorney General has an obligation to protect the rights of all Americans. We will continue to hold Attorney General Sessions’ feet to the fire. 


As Wade Henderson, President and CEO of The Leadership Conference shared: “The Senate has made a grave mistake in confirming Jeff Sessions to be attorney general. Sessions’ hearing and record of failing to uphold America’s ideals of justice and equality for all show he is unfit to be our nation’s top law enforcement official.”


Take Action: On Wednesday, the Senate voted to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. Find out how your senators voted. We urge you to call your senators (877) 959-6082 and “thank or spank” them – express support or disappointment – for their vote on this confirmation!
