An Assault on Our Rights: Donald Trump’s Cabinet Nominees

President-elect Donald Trump has nominated a cabinet that is determined to roll back our rights. These nominees personify the agenda conservatives are pushing to control our bodies, our freedom, our economic security, and our future.
During confirmation hearings this month, they’ll be asked about their plans for the policies and regulations that govern us. We have seen their records, and we’ll be watching closely and checking the facts. And we won’t be fooled.
We must hold these nominees – historically unfit to lead their respective agencies – accountable, just as we must tell our senators that we are watching how they vote. And we’ll remember which side of history they were on. We’ve fought so hard for the progress we’ve made for women and families — we can’t let the Trump administration throw it all away.
Here’s what you should know about each nominee and how you can take action:
