Today’s Action: Phonebank to #SaveSCOTUS TODAY

A word from our founder: For decades, Republicans have race baited, victimized poor and working families, and enriched the already privileged. Don’t let anyone tell you that Trump has shifted their party — he hasn’t. He has exposed it for what it is. (TWEET THAT)

Today’s Action: Phonebank to #SaveSCOTUS TODAY

Brett Kavanaugh is one of the most unpopular Justice nominees of all time. His records have remained hidden in secrecy by GOP scheming — last week, Sen Cory Booker (D-NJ) heroically released several confidential documents showing Kavanaugh’s views on racial discrimination for public review, the tip of the iceberg of information both the Senate and the public ought to have in reviewing Kavanaugh’s fitness for the seat.

The confirmation hearings are over, and now, we need all Democrats and two Republican Senators voting no to overturn Trump’s nominee. Eleven Senators are still undecided: 8 Democrats and 3 Republicans.

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.

Sign up for a shift in Indivisible’s phonebank platform – today is the last day – to call voters in a state 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.

Today is the final day. Sign up for an Indivisible phonebanking shift to call voters in a state with an undecided Senator. 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.
