Los Angeles – Equality California Executive Director Rick Zbur today issued the following statement on the appointment of Senator Kamala Harris to the Senate Judiciary Committee:
“Equality California is delighted that Senator Kamala Harris was appointed to the key Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday.
During the past year, the Trump Administration has been sending unqualified, unvetted and often venomously anti-LGBTQ nominees for lifetime judicial seats and high-ranking positions throughout the federal government.
Now that Senator Harris is joining Senator Feinstein on the key Judiciary Committee, Equality California looks forward to full-throated leadership by both of California’s Senators in blocking unfit and anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-civil rights nominees.”
