DNC on AG Sessions’ License to Discriminate
October 6, 2017
In response to guidance released by Donald Trump’s Department of Justice on ‘religious freedom’ that has been labeled a ‘license to discriminate’ against LGBTQ people, women, and others, DNC spokesperson Joel Kasnetz released this statement:
“If Jeff Sessions is attacking LGBTQ people, it must be a day that ends in a ‘y.’ Religious freedom is a fundamental right, but the attorney general’s directive is nothing but a license for businesses to discriminate.
“Despite claiming to support our community, Donald Trump has proved to be one of the country’s biggest threats to LGBTQ people. Democrats support the right of LGBTQ people to live and work without fear of being fired or discriminated against simply because of who they are. It’s time for Sessions to stop using the Justice Department as a tool for division and discrimination.”
