#BrothersForLorettaLynch March in Washington DC


Brothers March on the Capitol

Alpha Phi Alpha New Website Brother *|LNAME|*,

After months of stalling and inaction on behalf of the U.S. Senate, it is time for Alpha men to stand up and take action. Without a doubt, Loretta Lynch is a competent and fair choice to be our next U.S. Attorney General. Lynch would be the first African-American woman to lead the Justice Department if she is confirmed. It has been more than 160 days since President Obama nominated her on Nov. 8, and, according to CNN, "the delay in her confirmation is the longest since Ronald Reagan tapped Edwin Meese for the post in 1984."

#BrothersForLorettaLynch will assemble at 8:45 am EST on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 400 N. Capitol NW, Washington, DC. The march to the U.S. Capitol will begin at 10:00 am. This is to coincide with the 9:00–10:00 am NewsOneNow with Roland Martin on TV. At 10:00 am, we will begin our march to the U.S. Capitol. We will try to meet with each senator in the GOP leadership, in addition to Senators Tim Scott and Cory Booker.

If you attend the event, please follow Alpha on Twitter and Facebook. Repost your photos during the event using the hashtag #BrothersForLorettaLynch and #APhiA. Together, we will get the word out that swift confirmation of Loretta Lynch is the fair and just thing to do for this nation.
