NHMC Joins 99 Civil Rights Groups in Urging President Trump To Protect the Civil and Human Rights of All Americans

On June 5, 2017, NHMC joined 99 other civil rights groups in a letter to President Trump expressing “profound concern that the civil and human rights of all Americans” are being drastically undermined by “the administration’s proposed deep cuts to key civil rights office budgets, the withdrawal of numerous important civil and human rights policies, and the appointment of officials who appear bent on retreating from statutory civil and human rights agency priorities.” The letter called on the administration to reverse course before more individuals and communities are harmed.

Further, the letter urges President Trump and his administration to take “affirmative steps to halt the problematic policies and initiatives” and to provide positive leadership as a means of promoting “inclusion and respect for the basic rights and dignity of every person in America.”
