Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network (NAN) applaud Judge Merrick Garland's confirmation as the 86th Attorney General of the United States.

The Justice Department will now have an agenda-focused Attorney General to promote, reform, correct, and expand law rule with integrity and independence. We look forward to working with the DOJ to promote fairness and justice, confront racial injustice, and encourage all Americans' civil rights.

“Last summer over 200 thousand people joined us at the Lincoln Memorial to call on reform to harmful policing practices and misconduct much of which falls under DOJ's purview. Attorney General Garland has a record of being a consensus-builder throughout his esteemed career. We immediately call on him to honor his pledge to prioritize civil rights and ensure racial equity in our justice system, keeping with a deep and abiding reverence for the rule of law to ensure that the law is applied fairly and equally,” said Ebonie Riley, Washington, DC Bureau Chief of National Action Network.

“This new administration has reinvigorated the American spirit and hope in a democratic society that is inclusive of all people, not just a select few. The murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and others exposed inequities in our criminal justice system and a history of discriminatory police practices. Judge Merrick Garland's confirmation as the 86th Attorney General of the United States is a signal of hope that we are heading in the right direction for a Department of Justice that addresses police misconduct, advances racial equity, and creates a fairer nation for all,” said Rev. Al Sharpton President of Founder of National Action Network.
