Word: Trump's new Justice Department civil rights head

Leon W. Russell, Chair of the NAACP Board - The evidence is clear. For the past 20 years, [Eric] Dreiband has been on the wrong side of issues pertaining to housing, hate crimes and the many other critical areas that the Civil Rights Division oversees as part of its core mission.

On top of that, Dreiband has publicly criticized ‘Ban the Box’ policies, brought cases challenging the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate and defended the North Carolina bathroom bill – all which are policies that protect Americans.

Amidst a threatened merger of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs – which would severely limit the powers of both agencies – as well as an administration that unapologetically sows division, our country needs a true advocate for civil rights in the Department of Justice. And that is not Eric Dreiband.
