Dear MoveOn member,
Jeff Sessions isn't just a liar. He's dangerous. Under his leadership, Trump's Department of Justice has callously reversed years of progress, and its new policies will adversely impact people of color.
From making it harder for people of color to vote to bringing back harsher punishments for drug offenses, the Department of Justice is less about justice and more about systematically disenfranchising people of color.
We made a quick video to summarize some of the policies that are rapidly changing under Trump, Sessions, and the new Department of Justice. Click here to watch and share with your friends and family.

Novelist and scholar Zora Neale Hurston said, "If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it."
That's why we will not be silent about the increasing levels of harm communities of color are experiencing under the Trump administration. We know that simply sharing the worst that the Trump administration is doing isn't enough, but making sure our friends are aware of these destructive actions is a critical step toward taking greater action, which we are and will continue to do with allies across the civil rights, immigrant rights, and human rights movements. Sessions and Trump are counting on us to be too distracted by the many other outrages to even notice these measures, and we can't let that happen.

Thanks for all you do.
