Senate Must Not Confirm Feldblum

The Senate is currently considering the nomination of Chai Feldblum for reappointment to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) with a five-year term. Feldblum has publicly advocated that sex discrimination, as defined in current law, should be modified to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

Please urge the Senate to reject her confirmation by signing this memo entitled  “The Senate Must Not Confirm Chai Feldblum.”

On the issue of religious liberty, in particular, Feldblum believes that LGBT laws should prevail. She has stated that when religious liberty and LGBT are in conflict, LGBT laws should win, and believes that those who disagree should be forced to comply.

Since joining the EEOC, Feldblum has continued to advance an argument, long rejected by the courts, to interpret Title VII of the Civil Rights Act as protecting LGBT people from employment discrimination. In a Bloomberg article from 2016, Feldblum articulated her commitment to this interpretation and underscored that she believed the EEOC should push this interpretation on the courts.

Feldblum's radical views on religious liberty are inconsistent with the Constitution and with Supreme Court precedent. Likewise, her insistence on championing a view of the Civil Rights Act that the courts have repeatedly dismissed displays a concerning lack of heed to the courts and congressional intent.

Given this, Chai Feldblum should not be confirmed by the Senate for another five-year term at the EEOC. Join other leaders and urge the Senate to reject her nomination.
