Loretta Lynch has waited longer than any other Attorney General nominee in the past 30 years. Her confirmation is being held up by Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell over a controversial provision in an anti-human trafficking bill that will prevent women who have been trafficked from using their restitution funds to seek medical abortions for unwanted pregnancies.
With the Senate headed into a 2 week recess, the issue of her confirmation has never been more urgent.
Here is what you can do:
Call: Senator McConnell 866-338-5720 and tell him it is time to confirm Loretta Lynch for AG.
Advocate: Look up your Senators for your state and reach out to them by phone or email. Tell them we can’t go without leadership at the DOJ.
Join: Tweet at your representatives or tweet out your support for Loretta Lynch by using the hashtag “#ConfirmLynch”
Educate: Tell your networks about the delay in the Attorney General’s confirmation and ask them to join in supporting her.
If confirmed, Loretta Lynch would be the first African-American woman to serve as Attorney General. The Senate is passing up on an extremely qualified candidate with a proven track record in criminal justice at a crucial moment in time (Women’s History Month.) We cannot let this nomination pass us by. Help us #ConfirmLynch today!
