Friend, help us defend the future of our nation’s highest court

  • Jose Lopez Deputy Director

The future of our nation’s highest court is on the line.

Take action now! Tell Senator Schumer to do everything possible to stop the confirmation of extremist Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. 

The Trump administration and Mitch McConnell are doing everything they can to force through this confirmation. We need to make sure our senator is ready to stand strong against this abuse of power.

Amy Coney Barrett’s arrival on the Supreme Court would be a deadly blow for the Affordable Care Act, women’s reproductive rights, protections for immigrants, voting rights, and more.

Senate Democrats have the opportunity and the obligation to use every tool at their disposal—for instance, by objecting to routine consent agreements, speaking at length, and objecting to lift quorum calls—to block this abuse of power.

Last week, we and our allies took our fight in front of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s home to send the message that Schumer and Democrats MUST hold Republicans accountable. We need him fighting tooth and nail to ensure that our nation’s highest court doesn’t hold a 6-3 conservative majority.

Schumer must push McConnell to prioritize economic relief for the millions of people who are suffering after having lost their jobs and are struggling to pay rent, not play politics with a rushed Supreme Court nomination process.

Call and tweet at Senator Schumer now to say: We need you to do everything in your power to stop this confirmation. You must use every procedural tool in the parliamentary toolbox to keep extremist Amy Coney Barrett off the Supreme Court.

With your help, we will continue to apply pressure to stop any Supreme Court confirmation before the inauguration of the next president.

Join us in taking a few minutes every day to call Senator Chuck Schumer and deliver our message: Do everything in your power to keep extremist Amy Coney Barrett off the Court!

Thank you for helping protect our democracy!
