Citing his work for the Trump administration, a coalition of more than 200 civil rights organizations sent a letter to lawmakers Tuesday opposing the nomination of current deputy White House counsel Greg Katsas for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Vanita Gupta, the president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and former acting head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, wrote in the letter to senators that Katsas worked to advance conservative policies that restrict the rights of LGBT people, women and voters. The Leadership Conference represents such groups as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
