Today’s Action: Phonebank to #SaveSCOTUS TODAY

A word from our founder: We’re 60 days from Election Day, and talk about the blue wave is not overblown. Change is coming — but only if we make it. Through the work of the OD Action community and like minded activists nationwide, we protected Obamacare, stopped Trump’s kidnapping program, closed down Ivanka Trump’s exploitative clothing line, got Alex Jones banned from Twitter (yesterday), and more. So keep taking action and fighting back — because it’s working. November 6 is coming.

Today’s Action: Phonebank to #SaveSCOTUS TODAY

If you had doubts about Brett Kavanaugh before (and you really really should), his confirmation hearing so far has likely only made things worse. In three days, we learned that Kavanaugh misled the Senate under oath in 2004, thinks of birth control as “abortion-inducing drugs,” and lied when he claimed ignorance of stolen emails during his time in the Bush administration — also under oath.

Add this to his disgraceful treatment of Fred Guttenberg, whose teenage daughter was murdered in the Parkland massacre, and we see a clear picture of a judge who has no business on the Supreme Court.

It is still possible for the Senate to vote down the man chosen for the purpose of shielding Trump from punishment for his crimes of conspiracy, obstruction, and campaign finance violation. But these eleven Senators must hear so from their constituents…and only their constituents. Which means that our road to success is talking to the voters of those states and convincing them to call their Senators.

That’s why the good folks of Indivisible have created a #SaveSCOTUS phonebank, connecting progressives around the country with the voters in key states who absolutely must speak up this week.

Sign up for a shift in Indivisible’s phonebank platform, today through September 10, to call voters in states with an undecided Senator and #SaveSCOTUS.

Trump has already confirmed one Justice on the Supreme Court, a seat Republicans stole from President Obama. A second seat will solidify Trump’s far-right voice on the highest court in the country for decades to come, an unimaginable impact from a president currently under investigation for multiple crimes.

What’s at stake, based on Kavanaugh’s extensive record: a Supreme Court Justice who could stop Mueller’s work or vote down any repercussions for Trump’s crimes. On top of that: Roe v. Wade, voter rights, immigration rights, net neutrality, LGBTQ rights, gun safety…decades of progressive causes lost by this faulty nomination.

To stop this, it is crucial that progressives in every state pick up the phone and speak to voters with undecided Senators.

Sign up today for an Indivisible phonebanking shift to call voters in states with an undecided Senator. The final shift is Monday, September 10…so don’t delay taking action to #SaveSCOTUS!

An hour of your time now could be the deciding factor in half-a-century or more of future policy.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on Trump’s cabinet to invoke the 25th to begin removing him from office, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
