Stop Jeff Sessions from becoming Attorney General

Stop Jeff Sessions from becoming Attorney General. He would be disastrous for civil rights.

Sign the petition to tell Senators: Stop Jeff Sessions from becoming Attorney General. He would be disastrous for civil rights.

Donald Trump announced that he will appoint Senator Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General, or the top law enforcement agent in the country.

This is outrageous, and would be disastrous for all civil rights. Sessions is a racist, homophobic, misogynist xenophobe. He cannot lead the department that safeguards the rights and liberties of people in the U.S.

Sessions was rejected by Republicans for a federal judgeship in the 80s, because he was too racist. He has used the n-word, called civil rights groups like the NAACP un-American, and joked about liking the KKK, among many other racist remarks. As a Senator, he has fought all paths to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. He has defended Trump’s idea to ban Muslim immigrants.

Sessions is a danger to women and LGBTQ people. His actions as Alabama Attorney General to ban Gay-Straight Alliances on Alabama college campuses were ruled First Amendment violations. He voted against the Matthew Shepard Act, which added to the federal definition of hate crimes to include violent acts based on sexual orientation and gender identity. He voted against the Violence Against Women Act. He is also an outspoken opponent of women’s abortion rights.

Sign the petition to tell Senators: Do not let Jeff Sessions become Attorney General. He cannot be allowed to lead the Department of Justice.

These are only a few reasons Jeff Sessions is utterly unfit to head the Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ is responsible for protecting people’s rights, regardless of race, gender, religion, and beyond. He has actively fought the U.S. government’s efforts to protect the rights of marginalized groups. Trump’s appointment of him as U.S. Attorney General is a blatant affront to millions of people.

Sessions, as Attorney General, could undo years of progress. He could revoke the current DOJ policy letting states legalize marijuana, crack down on immigration, stop investigating police brutality, and roll back the DOJ’s enforcement of civil rights — and actively punish the people that civil rights laws and the DOJ are meant to protect: women, people of color, LGBTQ people, Muslims, and immigrants.

However, he will only become the U.S. Attorney General if he is confirmed by the Senate. So we can stop it.

Sign the petition to tell all U.S. Senators: do not allow Senator Jeff Sessions to become the U.S. Attorney General.

To: United States Senators
From: [Your Name]

Do not allow Senator Jeff Sessions to become the U.S. Attorney General. He has fought the U.S. government’s (including the Department of Justice’s) efforts to protect the rights of marginalized people, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people, Muslims, and immigrants. Trump’s appointment of him as U.S. Attorney General is a blatant affront to these people. It would be outrageous to let him lead the Department of Justice.
