9/19 – Wed: Drive this home.

quotes from Michelle at Small Deeds Done

Action #1 – Listen to Anita Hill

In 1991, Professor Anita Hill testified at Clarence Thomas’s nomination hearings regarding his pervasive sexual harassment. The questioning she was subjected to by that committee was designed to ridicule and humiliate her. We need to do better this time. Professor Hill has suggested some changes to the process that would make it better and less partisan. You can read her entire op-ed here.

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want the Judicial committee and Senator [___] to take Dr. Ford’s allegations seriously by selecting a neutral investigative body with with experience in sexual misconduct cases that will investigate and present its findings to the committee.

Wed. 9/12: We don’t need another anti-environmental corporate-fanboy on the Supreme Court.

Action #1 – Call your senators to support them or chide them on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court would do exactly what the Trump administration hopes he would do. Based on his record, he would wreak havoc on the environment to aid the administration’s largest donors, extractive industries like oil, gas, logging and mining, as well big agriculture. He will do it with “decisions” based on the strange, extreme, and absurd arguments that have puzzled and enraged his colleagues during his time on the federal bench. Now that the effects of global climate change are destroying parts of our country on a continual basis, we cannot afford another enabler of the polluters that foul our environment and destroy our health.

Minimal script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Senator [___] to [keep on resisting/fight against] Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court because he has been proven to be ally of those who would weaken our protections for our environment.
