He will overturn Roe v. Wade.
The fight to #SaveSCOTUS from Trump’s next Supreme Court Justice nominee is no longer speculative. Last night, Trump announced his nomination to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh.
Indivisible has teamed up with with MoveOn, Demand Justice, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Ultraviolet, National Center for Transgender Equality, United We Dream, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, CREDO, and other national progressive organizations to call for a week of action to #SaveSCOTUS.
Yesterday, we kicked off our week of action with in-district visits across the country. As outlined in Indivisible’s 2-Step Strategy to Win the Supreme Court Fight, the only way we can defeat Trump’s nominee is to make sure every single senate Democrat (and likely two Republicans) commits to a ‘no’ vote. Show up at your senator’s office and let them know that you’re paying attention.View Post
How you can help to #SaveSCOTUS.
- Find a #SaveSCOTUS Senate District Office event near you on our event map.
- If you don’t see one, register your own. There’s still time.
- Can’t make it to a district office in-person? You can still call Senators Warren and Markey to make your voice heard:
- Senator Edward J. Markey: 202-224-2742 or 617-565-8519
- Senator Elizabeth A. Warren: 202-224-4543 or 617- 565-3170
- Kavanaugh is one of the most cravenly partisan choices Trump could have made. He’s been called the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics,” as he seems to always show up in high-stakes, far-right political battles and conspiracy theories. In fact, his “excessive partisanship” delayed his confirmation to the DC Circuit in 2003 by not one, not two, but three years, and only then passed by a 57 to 43 vote. His long, partisan history even had Mitch McConnell scrambling to encourage Trump to make another pick just three days ago. We. can. win. this.
- This is a pick that will shift the court’s balance and reshape our country for generations to come. And only through intense pressure from constituents will senators understand what’s at stake and what they need to do. McConnell has said he’d like to vote on Trump’s Supreme Court pick by the fall. But first, it has to go through the Judiciary Committee, a confirmation vote in the full Senate… and you.
- All eyes will be on this nominee — and the response from grassroots activists like you. No senator will be able to lay low on their position. That makes this — today, tomorrow, all week long — the perfect moment to begin pressuring our senators to make the right decision and commit to opposing Kavanaugh.
- This is just the beginning. There are will be many flashpoints in the weeks ahead where we’ll need to be all hands on deck. We’ll be fighting tooth and nail to keep this extreme nominee from being seated on the court. Using the same grassroots opposition that stopped TrumpCare in spite of impossible odds, we will make it clear to both Democrats and Republicans that a ‘yes’ vote for Brett Kavanaugh is a vote to gut our rights and undermine our democratic institutions.
Here’s the special Recess Week edition of suggested actions for activists from National Indivisible:
After more than 2600 Cape Codders marched and protested this past weekend , there are 62 (!!) #endfamilyseparation events and 48 town halls on our on our events map here. MoCs will be home until July 9 so there’s still time to plan and register an event on our map if there isn’t an event near you. We have a handy organizing toolkit to help you to pressure your MoCs to make a verbal commitment to end family separation.
Last Wednesday, Justice Kennedy announced he would retire from the Supreme Court — and already GOP leaders are whipping votes for Trump’s pick. We won’t sugarcoat it: if Trump gets his appointment, we will see attack after attack in the courts to undo decades of legal progress.
We have a (narrow) path to stopping Trump’s nomination: all Democrats must reject any nomination and two Republicans must join them (read the strategy here).
Read our resource to learn how to use local public events to get facetime with your Senators while they’re home for the 4th of July. The ask for ALL Senators is the same: they must commit immediately to opposing anyone that Trump nominates from his shortlist. New Yorkers: pressure Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to hold Democrats together.
3) Let your MoC know: November is coming.
Election after election, we’ve shook districts, created major upsets, and moved primary candidates forward that were once deemed “too progressive” or “unwinnable.” And the biggest victories are still on the horizon — but only if we get organized right now.
It starts with holding your members of Congress accountable. Make sure they know you’re watching, and you’ll remember how they voted when you head to the voting booth in just 5 months. Let them know that November is coming — so get with your constituents, or we will vote you out.
