Target: Dianne Feinstein, California state senator
Goal: Vote against Jeff Sessions, President Trump’s bigoted nominee for Attorney General, in the upcoming vote on his nomination.
Jeff Sessions, President Trump’s nominee for the Attorney General position, has a history of bigotry that challenges his capacity for fairness and an unbiased observance of law. He has strongly voiced his dissent against immigration — both legal and illegal — and same-sex marriage. He has also been accused of racism and opposing civil rights, describing the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People “un-American” and “communist-inspired.”
Despite all this, there is still a chance that Sessions may be confirmed as Attorney General. Just a few votes stand between him and his confirmation, one of the most notable of which belonging to Dianne Feinstein (D – CA). The California Senator has acknowledged how strongly her constituents disapprove of Sessions, yet she has failed to make it clear how exactly she will cast her vote. With the vote on Sessions looming ever closer, it is important that concerned American citizens maintain pressure on Senators like Feinstein. Tell her that Jeff Sessions is not the right man to be Attorney General of the United States by adding your voice to this petition.
Dear Senator Feinstein,
Jeff Sessions’ biased and bigoted views make him ill-suited for the position of Attorney General. I fear that our justice system would suffer tremendously under his leadership, and we must do everything in our power to keep him from being confirmed. Please do what is right for your constituents and for the entire United States — vote against Sessions.
