Trump just picked known racist, Jeff Sessions, to ascend to the highest legal position in the land. Trump’s would-be Attorney General pick has an extensive track record of hate- he has called a Black federal prosecutor “boy,” falsely prosecuted Black political activists, and made offhand jokes about his support of the Klu Klux Klan. Racism is not a joke. We cannot let our halls of justice be cloaked with white supremacy.

If Sessions is confirmed he will roll back votings rights, anti-discrimination laws and will refuse to hold racist police departments accountable. Join me in demanding the Senate block his confirmation https://act.colorofchange.org/sign/block-sessions/?sp_ref=246529153.176.177103.e.0.2&referring_akid=6543.2851319.wvBUel&source=em_sp
