The next Supreme Court justice

Dear MoveOn member,

Washington, D.C. and the media are abuzz with rumors that President Obama may appoint a Supreme Court justice within the next 96 hours. We've just completed a poll on what Americans expect from our next justice. Here's the bottom line from the pollster:

"What average voters most want is a nominee willing to stand up for average people, a nominee who will ensure a fair hearing even against the most moneyed and powerful corporations and individuals."1

As senators get ready to hold critical hearings on whoever President Obama nominates, we need to make sure every senator hears this message and knows their constituents are paying attention. We're counting on them to find out if the next justice will stand up for the other 98% of us—ordinary Americans who aren't represented by corporate lobbyists.

So we're planning a national day of action on Tuesday, May 11th, to deliver the complete poll results and a new newspaper ad directly to their offices. But there's still no delivery planned at your senator's office.
Can you sign up to host a poll delivery to your senator's office on Tuesday?

Hosting a delivery is really simple. All you have to do is pick a time on Tuesday in our online system, get there a few minutes early to meet your group, and follow our simple guide to print out the materials to bring with you. We'll invite other local members to join you and help you every step of the way.

If hundreds of us organize events like these, we'll help impact our senators' questions during the Supreme Court nominee's confirmation hearings. But we need to get to as many Senate offices as possible to really make our voices heard—so we need everyone's help.

Thanks for all you do.
