The Senate has never been more important. What it does over the next few months could swing the balance of the Supreme Court for decades, putting our most fundamental rights on the line.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh believes presidents are above the law. Instead of being a check and balance on presidential power, his confirmation would render the Supreme Court a rubber stamp for the GOP agenda.
That means a radical far-right agenda to overturn Roe v. Wadeand roll back voting rights, health care, environmental protections, immigrant rights, and gun violence prevention will dominate all three branches of government. Any hope of getting money out of politics will be put out of reach — but we have a chance to stop him.
If we mount the fight of our lives right now, we can stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation in the Senate. Can you sign this petition calling on your senators to block Judge Kavanaugh?
Conservatives and far-right groups are applauding Trump’s nominee, and it’s no wonder why: Brett Kavanaugh is well known for his extremely conservative viewpoints, which are ideologically consistent with those of Justice Clarence Thomas, the most hard-right member of the court.
Judge Kavanaugh poses a threat to workers, immigrants, women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, our environment, and our democratic rights. If he’s confirmed by the Senate, it will be a disaster for everything we believe in.
But, despite the long odds, there is hope. You have proven before that with enough pressure, you can bring moderate Republicans over to our side to block disastrous legislation like the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
This is about which of our senators are willing to fight for our rights, instead of turning the Senate AND Supreme Court into seals of approval for the GOP’s right-wing agenda.
We need your voice if the Senate is going to check and balance presidential power by blocking the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Add your name to the petition demanding your senators do everything in their power to stop Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
What we do right now will shape the future of the Supreme Court and our country for generations to come. We can stop this confirmation if we stick together. Thank you.
