Civil Rights Groups Lay Out Priorities For Biden’s Justice Department

By Nolan D. McCaskill, Politico

Leaders of several civil rights groups laid out their recommendations on Tuesday for the type of attorney general President-elect Joe Biden should nominate to head the Justice Department.

The virtual conclave between seven civil rights leaders and Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), an incoming senior adviser to the president, comes as the president-elect continues to fill out his government.

Biden introduced members of his health team earlier on Tuesday, and POLITICO reported that he intends to nominate Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development and former Gov. Tom Vilsack of Iowa to run the Department of Agriculture.
