On June 30th, Indivisible is co-hosting a virtual SCOTUS rally to fight back against all the different ways Republicans have worked to stack our federal courts in their favor. We'll have some incredible guests — including Senator Elizabeth Warren, Alicia Garza, and Dan Pfeiffer — and we need your help! Let us know that you'll be at the rally by RSVPing here, and record a video telling us why it's important to fight for real court reform NOW.
Here's why this is so crucial:
A fair judiciary is the cornerstone of a functioning democracy — so it’s no coincidence that right now, we have neither. The Republican Party has stacked the courts with extremely conservative ideologues, most egregiously in 2016, when Mitch McConnell stole a Supreme Court seat so that Donald Trump could fill it.
Trump and McConnell have successfully confirmed 200 judges to the federal bench, including two Supreme Court justices: Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Trump’s judges overwhelmingly tend to be white, male, and very young. Many of them are unqualified. This is the legacy that will remain long after Trump is gone, since federal judges serve on the bench for life.
Every single issue we care about comes down to the courts. Unfortunately, Republicans have stacked the deck with ultra-conservative judges hand-selected by dark money groups.
This rally is an opportunity to discuss the current problems facing our courts. Join us!
