WASHINGTON, DC – (RealEstateRama) — Today, in response to the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, NCRC’s President and CEO John Taylor made the following statement.
“We continue to have deep concerns about Senator Sessions’ record on issues of fair housing, civil rights and hate crime prevention. Senator Sessions’ record on voting rights is also alarming. Voting right are a fundamental cornerstone of a healthy democracy, and it is imperative that the Attorney General work to ensure that all citizens have the ability to participate in the democratic process. We need an Attorney General who will protect, follow, and enforce the laws, and it is now incumbent on Senator Sessions to step up and do the people’s work for all Americans.
“NCRC extends an open invitation to Senator Sessions to meet and discuss these and other issues. We hope to build a constructive working relationship with Senator Sessions and share the civil rights concerns of communities across the country.”
NCRC and its grassroots member organizations create opportunities for people to build wealth. We work with community leaders, policymakers and financial institutions to champion fairness in banking, housing and business development.
