Today’s Action: Vote NO on Kavanaugh to #SaveSCOTUS

Last week, Trump announced his nominee to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh. Let’s take a look at him:

  • Has previously written that a President should be exempt from criminal investigation while in office…which many believe is precisely why Trump has chosen him
  • Upheld discriminatory voter ID laws in South Carolina, blocking an estimated 80,000 people of color from voting, and is strongly opposed by the NAACP
  • Opposes even the most common sense safeguards on semi-automatic weapons, calling any restriction unconstitutional
  • A major threat to Roe v. Wade and all abortion rights
  • Believes net neutrality violates internet providers’ freedom of speech and said he would rule any net neutrality regulations, even if they were laws passed by Congress

To sum up: racist, trigger-happy, corporate-friendly…and against the Trump-Russia investigation.

We are now less than 125 days from the 2018 elections, which could flip the Senate to Democratic control. Our best chance to stop this travesty is to vote down Kavanaugh and any other Trump nominee until after the election.

Call or email your Senators and demand they block Kavanaugh until after the midterm elections – tell them to stand firm for minority votes, individual-over-corporate interests…and holding Trump accountable.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he’ll push through any nomination this fall before the elections of 35 Senate seats. Many Republicans are afraid to be held responsible for jeopardizing Roe v. Wade, which means they’re susceptible to progressive pressure. Meanwhile, Democrats in red states might be tempted to vote yes to keep their seats in November — but a SCOTUS appointment can have lasting impact for generations of Americans, so Democrats need to hear from us too.

We must push Democrats and Republicans alike to stand firm and vote down Kavanaugh and any other Trump nomination that arrives before midterms.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they stay strong against a Trump court – and block Kavanaugh and any other nominations that arrive before our new Congress begins in January.
