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.

Contact your Senator:
Senator Feinstein: email DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430
and Senator Harris: email DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884

Tues 7/10: Trump chose the smarmy lapdog for the hard-right. Now what?

Updated Resources 7/11/18

(from Indivisible National)

It’s happened: Trump has announced his nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. On July 9th, Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and set the stage for a monumental shift in the Court’s makeup. If Trump is successful at getting Kavanaugh confirmed, the Court will work to preserve the Trump agenda for decades to come.

Key issues that affect us all hang in the balance, including reproductive rights, access to health care, LGBTQ rights, environmental protections, and much more. Further, the next Supreme Court justice could rule on cases involving Trump himself, whether resulting from the Mueller investigation or otherwise.

Brett Kavanaugh is one of the most cravenly partisan choices Trump could have made. He has been called the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics” because he always seems to show up in high-profile far-right conspiracy theories and political battles.

Here’s what you need to know about his nomination to the Supreme Court.

What’s at stake?
