United States Senate

Americans deserve a Department of Justice that vigilantly defends and advances every American's right to vote. Sen. Jeff Sessions' record and positions are hostile to that mission and to a democracy that represents us all. Please vote to reject Jeff Sessions' nomination for Attorney General.

Signed,

The Department of Justice's job is one of the most important offices in the country. We trust the DOJ to protect what makes America special -- our right to vote, and the equal treatment of all Americans before the law.

Donald Trump's nominee to lead that agency, Sen. Jeff Sessions, has spent his entire political life doing the exact opposite. He's unfit to be Attorney General, and we must speak out to stop him.

In nominating Sen. Sessions, President-elect Trump is entrusting our civil and voting rights to a man who fundamentally opposes them. Having Jeff Sessions as Attorney General would effectively repeal the Voting Rights Act -- and would empower voter suppresion on a national scale like we haven't seen in decades
