Action 1: URGENT - #SaveSCOTUS Phone Bank

In addition to the numerous lies Brett Kavanaugh has told the Senate during his confirmation hearings, and his reference to birth control as “abortion-inducing drugs,” a California professor has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault.


This disturbing allegation alone is enough to disqualify Kavanaugh from serving on any court, let alone the highest court in the country for a lifetime appointment. Senators Duckworth and Durbin have each have each been publicly critical of this uniquely controversial candidate and the way his nomination to Supreme Court was made and has rushed through to the. But several senators have not made a public decision and can still be swayed.  

We must redouble our efforts to reach out to those senators constituents to stop Brett Kavanaugh and #SaveSCOTUS. Sign up to join our massive phone bank for one of our upcoming shifts, and we’ll send you everything you need to take part.

If Trump is successful at getting Kavanaugh confirmed, the Court will work to preserve the Trump agenda for decades to come. Key issues that affect us all hang in the balance, including reproductive rights, access to health care, LGBTQ rights, environmental protections, and much more.
