This week, Congress confirmed Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) to be Attorney General (AG) of the United States. NCADV remains concerned about AG Sessions becoming the top legal advocate for victims based on his confirmation testimony, voting record, and history of comments and statements, as noted below.
NCADV plans to monitor Jeff Sessions’ actions as Attorney General to ensure the safety of domestic violence victims and survivors across the nation. As the voice of victims and survivors we continue our pledge: we will work to ensure victims of gender based violence receive respect, support and justice regardless of their circumstances, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, gender expression, economic status, age or disability. #WeWillBeThere
