From her national community policing tour to help improve the relationship between local law enforcement and communities they serve, to transgender rights, to her bold stances on criminal justice reform, former U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch epitomizes the Obama administration’s end-of-tenure posture of not shying away from tough issues, offering audiences unique and powerful insights on civil rights, 21st century policing, and criminal justice reform.
President Obama announced his intention to nominate Lynch as Attorney General on November 8, 2014 and she was sworn in as the 83rd Attorney General of the United States, and the first African American female AG, on April 27, 2015. She served until 2017.
