The Senate will vote on the nomination of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for the position of attorney general today.
It won’t be a quiet event, however, because organizers from the Women’s March on Washington will try to make their voices heard again today as they protest against Sen. Sessions.
The protestors began grouping together with signs in hand outside the Dirksen Senate office building on Tuesday morning.
They picked this location because inside is where the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to approve Sen. Sessions for attorney general.
After the committee vote is complete, the appointment of Sessions will then face a full Senate vote.
According to a post published on Facebook, the protest organizers claim this about Sessions: “His record shows that, if confirmed, he would reverse decades of civil rights progress for women, African Americans, the LGBTQIA community, and recent immigrants.”
