Senate confirmation hearings for Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh begin in less than three weeks. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, we lose a vital check against the Trump administration, anda conservative wish list of repressive, discriminatory policies could become Supreme Court precedent for an entire generation.
Join us for a national organizing call THIS SUNDAY, August 19, 2018 at 7:30pm ET (6:30 CT/5:30 MT/4:30 PT). Hear fromexperts, activists, and community leaders about how we can take action to blockKavanaugh from the Court.
There are countless reasons it is crucial to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court, including:
- He believes presidential power isso great that presidents must be exempt from lawsuits and criminal investigation, no matter how much evidence exists
- The Affordable Care Act is in great danger if he is confirmed
- His vote could be the final nailin the coffin for Roe v.Wade and reproductive rights
- His full record as staffsecretary under George W. Bush has not been released
Republicans are trying to rush Kavanaugh’s confirmation while aggressively obscuring his record. What we know about him is that he would tip the balance of the Supreme Court to the far right, reverse important progressive victories, and impede basic civil rights.
Republicans hold the Senate majority, but Kavanaugh’s confirmation is NOT inevitable.
