Action 1: Tell Senators to Vote No on Kavanaugh for SCOTUS

Seventeen days ago, Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court set the stage for a monumental shift in the court’s balance. And our Senators still have not committed to voting “no” on his nomination.

Both because of his partisan allegiances and his views on presidential powers, Kavanaugh’s nomination could shield Trump from facing accountability for his crimes and corruption. Kavanaugh once wrote a law review article declaring that presidents should be free from criminal investigations. Also, while taking a shot at the Affordable Care Act in the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, he wrote a lengthy opinion asserting that presidents can decline to enforce laws that they think are unconstitutional, even if courts disagree.

The only way we can defeat Trump’s nominee is to get to 51 votes. To start, we need 49 “no” votes from EVERY SINGLE SENATE DEMOCRAT to have a fighting chance. Neither of our Senators have committed to voting “no” on Kavanaugh, so we need to keep the pressure up!

Call Senator Duckworth | DC: 202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Call Senator Durbin | DC: 202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952

Script: Hi, my name is {NAME} and I'm a constituent in the {ZIP CODE} and member of Indivisible. I'm calling to ask {Senator} to commit to voting “no” on Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is an extremely partisan pick who holds dangerous views about Presidential power and has demonstrated hostility towards the ACA. I want the Senator to do everything in his/her power to stop this nomination and commit publicly to voting “no.” Thank you.
