NEWARK – The United Black Agenda coalition today issued the following statement in response to Gov. Murphy’s nomination of Matt Platkin for Attorney General: 

“Given the many issues that fall under the Attorney General’s purview with substantial racial justice implications, we are pleased that Governor Murphy has made a nomination to fill that important role and transition the office’s leadership from an ‘acting’ status. We acknowledge Acting Attorney General Bruck for the work we were able to do with him. If Mr. Platkin is confirmed, we look forward to continuing that progress.”
