  • First African American Woman to Become US Attorney General
    Updated On: Jun 12, 2015

    The Senate finally confirmed Loretta E. Lynch yesterday (April 23rd) by a 56-43 vote to become US attorney general 166 days after President Obama submitted her nomination to Congress. The fact that this delay occurred because of the Republicans' politicizing a human trafficking bill is a disgrace.  While Loretta Lynch served as Attorney for the Eastern District of New York her district established the most active anti-trafficking record in the country. CLUW President Connie Leak remarked that , "We are very pleased that the Senate took action to confirm this extremely well qualified woman as US Attorney General, but the long wait was yet another example of how Republican senators were playing games with women's lives."

    CLUW has been active in calling for the confirmation to proceed, as evidenced by the resolution that was passed by CLUW's National Executive Board earlier this month.
