Right now, the Trump Administration and Republicans in the U.S. Senate are hoping you’re too distracted to notice their attempt at an extreme political takeover of the Supreme Court of the United States.
If confirmed, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, will solidify Trump’s anti-healthcare, anti-worker, anti-immigrant, anti-choice, and pro-gun political agenda for generations to come. But we CAN STOP this nomination if we work hard and work together. In fact, current polling shows that Kavanaugh is one of the most unpopular Supreme Court nominees in recent history.
A Kavanaugh confirmation is not a done deal.

What’s at stake for families? A lot. Kavanaugh’s record speaks for itself.
Kavanaugh is a threat to our families’ health care. He has expressed contempt for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in two cases that have come before him and has criticized the law in speeches.
Kavanaugh is a threat to reproductive health care. He ruled that an employer’s religious beliefs should override an employee’s right to birth control coverage and has repeatedly expressed extreme hostility toward women’s bodily autonomy including the right to reproductive choice.
Kavanaugh is a threat to workers' rights. He has sided with big employers against working people’s rights against discrimination and exploitation.
Kavanaugh is a threat to gun safety legislation. He has made it clear that he would strike down restrictions on assault-style weapons and put in jeopardy a full range of gun safety laws.
Kavanaugh is a threat to immigrant families. He has demonstrated hostility to the rights of immigrants in numerous cases.
Kavanaugh is a threat to LGBTQ+ equality. He has demonstrated a willingness to provide license to discriminate to religious adherents that will undercut protections for people in the LGBTQ+ community.
There’s so much at stake with this nomination and the U.S. Senate has a responsibility to protect ALL of its constituents and our rights. Not getting health coverage due to having a pre-existing condition; not having access to birth control or reproductive choice; loose gun laws; and no accountability for the executive branch… this CANNOT become our new normal!
We must speak out and make our voices heard against Kavanaugh as Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court. His lifetime appointment could undermine so much progress and have a disastrous impact on our health care, reproductive rights, and civil rights for generations to come. All of us must make our voices heard.
