I called Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. John Cornyn, and Rep. Roger Williams today. This is what I said:
I’m calling to voice my concerns about the selection of Dr. Ben Carson as head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and to urge you to block his appointment in the Senate. I believe that Carson’s retrograde statements on public housing and fair housing rules to be a threat to the civil rights of countless American citizens, and I believe that he lacks the experience and expertise necessary for this position. I strongly advocate for you to block his nomination by all possible means, for the sake of the vulnerable Americans you serve.
