For Civil Rights: Stop Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Dangerous Supreme Court Nominee

For Civil Rights: Stop Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Dangerous Supreme Court Nominee

Since he launched his campaign, Donald Trump has been clear that his agenda is designed to serve and validate the white supremacist impulses of his base and undermine the civil rights of people of color, immigrants, women, LGBTQ people, and Muslims. His latest attempt to advance that agenda is his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh, if confirmed, would enshrine Trump’s bigotry for generations by joining the conservative majority to roll back civil rights on all fronts—racial equality, religious freedom, marriage equality and other LGBTQ rights, as well as abortion, voting and workers’ rights.

This is why we must stop his confirmation.

Kavanaugh is an extreme conservative whose career until now demonstrates hostility to civil rights. In 2012, he upheld a voter ID law despite evidence that it would disenfranchise minority voters. He has repeatedly ruled against employees in workforce-discrimination cases.

The NAACP called Kavanaugh a “dangerous ideologue,” who “has been a strong and consistent voice for the wealthy and the powerful. Over and over again, he has ruled against civil rights, workers’ rights, consumer rights and women’s rights.”

In response to  Kavanaugh’s nomination, more than 100 civil rights groups signed a letter opposing his confirmation, noting that he would be the fifth and decisive vote on the Supreme Court to undermine a wide range of our core rights and legal protections.

These rights and protections are the foundation of our democracy. If you believe they’re worth fighting for, please join us in opposing the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
