Dear MoveOn member,
The danger that right-wing extremist Brett Kavanaugh poses to reproductive rights, health care access, and accountability for a corrupt president is becoming clearer every day. The fight to block his nomination is critical—and winnable—which is why we're hosting a Resist & Win National Organizing Call this Sunday, August 19, at 7:30 p.m. ET (6:30 CT/5:30 MT/4:30 PT) to engage tens of thousands of activists in this high-stakes fight over the critical weeks ahead
Because you have registered for our Sunday night national organizing call series in the past, a few minutes before the training begins, you'll receive a call at the phone number you previously listed. No further actions is required, though you can click here to register a different phone number or come back to this link at the time of the call to listen via computer.
Join the call with NARAL President Ilyse Hogue and other community leaders in this fight, on a national Resist & Win organizing call this Sunday, August 19. We'll hear the campaign strategy from leaders in the movement, and discuss the opportunities in the month ahead, including a national day of action—Unite for Justice—on August 26.
In this era of political extremism, the courts are often our last line of defense for our rights and freedoms. Already, Trump has been filling the nation's courts with judges who are opposed to reproductive rights, immigrant rights, LGBTQ rights, voting rights, and more.1
The sad truth is that the highest court could lurch even further to the right with a nominee who could cement Trump's legacy for decades. Trump made clear during the 2016 presidential campaign that he'd create a litmus test for Supreme Court Justices—overturn Roe v. Wade and rule against protections covering 30 million Americans under the the Affordable Care Act.2 Brett Kavanaugh has become the nominee because he passes this litmus test with flying colors. Not only does his record show him to be an enemy of abortion rights, he is likely to support overturning the Affordable Care Act and is on record saying that he thinks sitting presidents should be above the law.
These issues and so many more are at stake if Kavanaugh is confirmed, which is why we're working with NARAL and dozens of partners to plan the Unite for Justice National Day of Action on August 26 for people in all 50 states to demand that their senators oppose Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.
All across the country, people have been showing up at Senate offices and rallies, flooding phone lines, and shouting their opposition. Now that Kavanaugh's hearings are set for September 4—less than three weeks away—it's time to turn up the volume. Tune in to hear the plan to pull together the 51 votes we need to block his nomination—and how you can help stop it, including the national day of action and ongoing actions you can take wherever you live.
Tens of thousands of MoveOn members and fellow activists join these Resist & Win national organizing calls, and we take your hour seriously—giving you up-to-date intel about the state of the fight and plugging you into the most impactful actions. This is an incredible chance to hear from community leaders, issue experts, and grassroots activists about how you can take action to stop Donald Trump's nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, from cementing the worst of Trump's policies for a generation and save the Supreme Court. Please forward this invitation to your friends so they too can join thousands of participants in this call and in this fight.
Thanks for all you do.
