Summary: HRC civil rights organization, releases report detailing Jeff Sessions record on LGBTQ equality.
Ahead of this week's confirmation of President-elect Donald Trump's choice for United States Attorney General, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, released a report detailing Jeff Sessions' alarming record on LGBTQ equality.
The report was delivered to Members of Congress with an attached letter from Chad Griffin, President of the Human Rights Campaign, calling on Senators to oppose Sessions' nomination.
Senator Sessions has spent a lifetime in public service devoted to proudly denying equality and justice for LGBTQ people. As Attorney General of Alabama and as a U.S. Senator, Jeff Sessions has not only ignored every opportunity to protect the LGBTQ community from violence, discrimination, and marginalization, but he has actively used his positions to stand against equality for LGBTQ Americans in nearly every form.
"Donald Trump's pick for Attorney General has never been shy about showing animus toward all types of Americans--LGBTQ people, women, people of color, and immigrants -- to name a few," said HRC President Chad Griffin.
"Trump's decision to appoint Sessions for this position is yet another chilling sign that Donald Trump's administration will stand proudly against equality for LGBTQ Americans. The American people deserve to know about the anti-equality records of Trump's cabinet picks -- and we at the Human Rights Campaign will be holding them to account."
