The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings will begin after Labor Day. In response, activists and concerned citizens gathered around the country on August 26th for a national day of action to tell our Senators: Kavanaugh is WRONG for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh has said that a sitting President should not be prosecuted — not even investigated — which means the President doesn't have to answer questions about possible crimes. Kavanaugh's also hinted that a sitting President shouldn't be sued either, but it doesn't stop there; he still refuses to release documents regarding his voting records. His extreme positions threaten equal rights for all citizens, our environment and our economy.
There’s no doubt: Kavanaugh would rule to attack voting rights and LGBTQ rights, slash environmental protections, gut reproductive rights, and further damage workers’ and immigrant rights. If Senators vote to confirm Kavanaugh, they would cement into place the worst and most dangerous of Donald Trump’s policies and a legacy that will live on for decades after he's gone. Kavanaugh on the court means an end to Roe v Wade; any hope of getting money out of politics; and a Supreme Court which does not back the investigation into Trump's illegal and traitorous activities. Trump's lawyer just pled guilty to two counts of violation of campaign finance laws and said Trump directed him to pay off Stormy Daniels and his other mistress. Furthermore, is it right that a president under investigation gets to pick his own judges? A resounding NO!
🗣 We can NOT have a Supreme Court Justice who thinks the president is above the law. ⚖️
The folks at Indivisible KC
Representative Kevin Yoder betrayed his constituents by voting "yes" on defunding Planned Parenthood and repealing Obamacare. Blunt and Roberts have supported repealing Obamacare from the get go. Constituents were asked to bring ACA support tombstones to send strong messages to our Members of Congress.
Resist Trump Tuesday
Every Tuesday during Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, we organized "Resist Trump Tuesday" visits to the offices of our Members of Congress. Based on current events, issues were determined each week prior to the event and talking points were provided. We met outside the office and held a rally in opposition/support depending on the topic. Each week Constituents brought a wide array of creative and clever homemade signs and took turns addressing MoC staff members with their own questions and concerns..
