Dear 5849376,

Save SCOTUS. Tell the Senate to block Trump's Supreme Court appointee

Justice Anthony Kennedy just announced his retirement from the Supreme Court. Donald Trump now has an opportunity to stack the court with another right-wing extremist who will greenlight Republican attacks on women, immigrants, Muslims, LGBTQ people, people of color, workers, the environment and our democracy as whole – unless the Senate stops him.

It won't be easy to keep the Senate from institutionalizing Trump's extremism for a generation. Republicans stole a Supreme Court seat from President Obama because they were desperate to advance their extremist agenda.1

We have to show Republicans and wobbly Democrats that the vast majority of Americans won't tolerate the Senate handing over the Supreme Court to someone who may have helped a foreign government steal the 2016 election so that he can enact a dangerous, cruel and bigoted agenda. The more of us who speak up now, the stronger that message will be.

Tell the Senate: Don't institutionalize Trump's bigotry and corruption in America's highest court by approving another Trump nominee. Click here to sign the petition.

Justice Kennedy was a swing vote on most 5-4 Supreme Court decisions, often siding with the court's liberals on key civil rights and civil liberty cases.2 He validated the constitutionality of marriage equality and upheld Roe v. Wade.3

Trump's shortlist, which he says he will use to pick a nominee, is filled with extremists who will likely:4

  • Overturn Roe v. Wade
  • Undo worker, consumer and environmental protections in favor of corporate profits
  • Give free rein to voter suppression
  • Reject challenges to the death penalty and racial bias in the criminal justice system
  • Give Trump and his administration even more authority to discriminate against Muslims, immigrants, people of color and LGBTQ people

He will also be creating a court that may have to answer key questions arising from the Mueller investigation, including whether a sitting president can be subpoenaed or indicted and whether he can pardon himself. How the Supreme Court rules could potentially make Trump immune to consequences for colluding with Russia to undermine our electoral system and our democracy.5

Senate Republicans need to get the message loud and clear that their partisan refusal to provide the necessary checks to Trump's corruption and extremism is unacceptable. We must remind Democrats that we expect nothing less than all out defense of the Court, our communities and our democracy. The entire body needs to know that if they fail to act, we will hold them accountable
