Statement on the Confirmation of Jeff Sessions

Another day, another confirmation of a dangerous and misguided Cabinet appointee.

Senator Jeff Sessions has been denounced by civil rights leaders for his attempts to deny the voting rights of Black voters. He believes marriage equality to is a threat to our nation. He has voted to defund Planned Parenthood on whose services young people rely. Yet he passed through the Senate with ease. Jeff Sessions clearly cannot be relied upon to protect the rights of all young people or work for their safety. Like Senator Warren, Advocates for Youth and the youth activists we work with will persist in defying this callous and unjust administration.
