Today’s Action: Tell your Senators to oppose racist Thomas Farr for District Court

The Senate will vote this week on Trump’s pick, Thomas Farr, for US District Court for North Carolina. And 50 Senators – the full Democratic caucus plus Jeff Flake (R-AZ) – have announced they will vote against him.

With good reason. Since the 1990’s, Farr has created and defended some of the most extreme anti-Black voter suppression laws in our country, in the very district Trump seeks to place him.

It’s disgusting. But we have a chance to stop it from happening. We only need ONE more Republican to vote against Farr to keep him out of the courts.

If your Senators are Republicans, email or call them TODAY and demand they oppose Thomas Farr for US District Court. Farr’s agenda of anti-Black voter suppression would be disgraceful in our courts. If your Senators are Democrats, urge them to hold strong in this vote.

Farr’s history of voter suppression against people of color runs deep. As an attorney in North Carolina, Farr defended GOP gerrymandering, a discriminatory voter I.D. law, a reduction in early voting days, and the elimination of same-day voting registration.

The NAACP said it best: “Even among dangerous Trump nominees Farr stands out for his decades-long crusade to disenfranchise African Americans… [He] helped turn North Carolina into ground zero for voter suppression. His nomination is a travesty. His confirmation would be heresy.”

And we just need *one* Republican to wake up and recognize this. Pick up your phone.

Republican Senators: call (202.224.3121) or email them today and demand they oppose Thomas Farr for US District Court. Democratic Senators: call or email them and thank them for supporting the voting rights of people of color.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling the Senate to reject Trump’s nomination of a lawless, racist extremist to a lifetime judgeship, 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.
