Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions by The Leadership Conference (and the 78 organizations that it represents on this issue), Indivisible, and others. It asks the Senate to oppose the nomination of William Barr as Attorney General.

Mr. Barr has a history of restricting civil and human rights, including the rights of immigrants, women, LGBTQ Americans, as well as those in the criminal justice system.

Your letter will be sent to your Senators.

Please oppose William Barr's confirmation as Attorney General. 

Barr minimizes the allegations of a Trump/Russia connection. He’s skeptical of independent investigations and has opposed the Mueller investigation. 

Additionally, Barr's views on civil rights are troubling. He supported the “Muslim ban,” and in his previous role as AG, opposed efforts to ban torture. He opposed reproductive rights, disparaged LBGTQ rights, and supported AG Sessions’ decision to rescind guidance protecting transgender Americans.

Finally, Barr supported the wealthy and powerful over other Americans. He opposed an open Internet, advocated for the Time-Warner/AT&T merger, and opposed the Affordable Care Act and protections for investors.

William Barr is not the right person for Attorney General. Please reject his confirmation.
