April 23, 2015

(Washington, D.C.)  Today, the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) applauds the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Loretta Lynch to be the Attorney General of the United States. She is the first African American woman to serve as the nation’s foremost law enforcement officer. The following is a statement by NWLC Co-President Marcia D. Greenberger: “Today, the Senate made history by confirming Loretta Lynch to be U.S. Attorney General, marking the first time an African American woman has ever held the position. By any measure, Ms. Lynch is exceptionally qualified to serve as the nation’s top law enforcement officer. She has repeatedly demonstrated that she is dedicated to public service and the rule of law, and that she has the legal expertise and sound judgment to serve the nation in this critically important role. “The confirmation of this extraordinary individual is long overdue. Now that the unseemly and unnecessary delays have come to an end, Ms. Lynch can finally begin to address the many important issues that await her at the Department of Justice. The National Women’s Law Center is confident that she will serve as a role model and inspiration for women and girls around the country.”
