Debo P. Adegbile

Debo Adegbile is a highly qualified civil rights attorney who ADC and the civil rights community strongly support as the right person to head the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division.

The recent Senate filibuster of Debo Adegbile’s nomination represents an effort to discredit civil rights law and public interest lawyers who have committed their lives to protecting the rights of people of color and immigrants.

In a letter to the 52 Senators who voted against the nominatoin, ADC and a coalition of legal groups denounced the vote as detrimental to the legal system that should be protecting our fundamental rights. Click here to read the letter.
