Udry is executive director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee/Defending Dissent Foundation.

Udry said today: “Jeff Sessions has spent his career undermining the rights of people of color, women, LGBTQ people, immigrants, religious minorities, and people with disabilities. And he’s no friend of civil liberties either. Senator Sessions has been a leading proponent of expanding mass surveillance of innocent Americans, supports torture, opposes sensible criminal justice reform, and has proven himself no friend of the most basic building block of democracy: protecting the right to vote.”

Udry referenced an online compendium of material on Sessions.
