For many of us, Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination fight was a wake-up call. We saw how far the Trump Administration and its allies in Congress are willing to go to confirm justices who threaten our rights. But we also heard powerful new voices: the voices of women, of survivors, of LGBTQ people, people of color, people of faith, people who care about our environment, health care and our nation’s working families – all speaking out for our rights, and against a Trump takeover of our courts.
It’s time to keep this energy going.
The President nominates and Senators confirm the hundreds of judges who sit on our powerful federal courts – the Supreme Court, the circuit courts, and the district courts. By being a courts voter, you’re showing them that voters won’t stand for elected officials who support a Trump takeover of our courts. These are the courts that decide if we have equal rights at work and at school, whether we can access health care including full reproductive care, whom we can marry and whether we can vote, if we have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. The judges who sit on them are nominated by the President, and every single United States Senator gets a vote on whether they are confirmed or not. And federal judges serve for life.
By pledging to vote for candidates who will only support fair-minded judicial nominees who will uphold all our rights, you can make a difference for generations of Americans. By pledging not to vote for candidates who support narrow-minded or biased judicial nominees, you help ensure that all our communities can live with dignity.
Pledge to be a courts voter today.
