Confirmation of Sessions to Serve as U.S. Attorney General a Huge Disservice to the Nation

February 8, 2017
It is nothing less than shameful that the U.S. Senate tonight confirmed Jeff Sessions to serve as U.S. Attorney General – our country’s chief law enforcement officer. Sessions’ record on basic civil rights is profoundly disturbing. Jeff Sessions’ vision for America hurts our children, families, communities, economy, and country.

February 7, 2017
Every Senator who voted to confirm Betsy DeVos to serve as U.S. Secretary of Education today should be ashamed.

ACT NOW: Reject Betsy DeVos' nomination for Secretary of Education!

January 30, 2017
Betsy DeVos in charge of my child’s education scares me. When questioned by the Senate committee she could not answer basic questions about education policy and declined to commit to protecting funds for public schools. She would not commit enforcing gun-free zones at schools, to enforcing laws designed to prevent and punish sexual assault on college campuses, and to supporting measures that would help ensure that children with disabilities are well-served by our schools.
