Equality Federation Statement on Jeff Sessions Confirmation as Attorney General
February 8, 2017 - Equality Federation stood in solidarity with the broad, diverse opposition to Senator Sessions for Attorney General due to his history of opposing fairness, freedom, and justice for all. He has a record of opposing LGBTQ equality, making racist statements, and acting as a barrier to progress for people of color, women, immigrants and other communities. We hope Mr. Sessions meets with the communities the Department of Justice is meant to protect so that he can hear how any rollback of civil rights or nondiscrimination protections will harm our families.
