Dear MoveOn member,
Christine Blasey Ford spoke with courage, dignity, and honesty.
Brett Kavanaugh yelled, blatantly lied, and showed himself to be a vengeful partisan with no business being a judge.
Which one will the Senate will believe?
This confirmation battle has become about more than just a Supreme Court seat. It's about whether the voices and bodies of women and survivors of sexual assault have value in this country.
That's why, last night, MoveOn members took action and called for protests outside Senate offices around the country today at noon—with a focus on eight states whose senators could be the deciding votes. Already, thousands of constituents are planning to attend. But we need to make these events, the actions in D.C., and the pressure on phones, social media, and airwaves even more intense in these critical hours—as the Senate Judiciary Committee plans to vote today, leading to a full Senate voting process that begins tomorrow and culminates Tuesday.
For all the survivors who are reliving their own trauma through the news cycle. For all the young girls watching and taking lessons about their own value. For future generations of women whose rights Brett Kavanaugh will control if confirmed.
We must not fail. We must stop Brett Kavanaugh. Will you chip in $3 to help keep up the pressure?
Watching Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony was equal parts heart-wrenching and inspiring. Imagine the courage it took for her to come forward, knowing how she would be attacked, to relive her trauma in public.
But it was also terrifying, because what if, after all we've learned about this man, he is still given a lifetime appointment to decide women's rights and control our bodies?
Let's be clear: Brett Kavanaugh is a liar who has no business on the U.S. Supreme Court.
He lied about his history of drinking.1 He lied about the meaning of "Renate Alumni" in his yearbook.2 He lied in his previous confirmation hearings in 2004 and 2006 about his actions in the Bush administration.3
There are real cracks showing in the Republican wall of support for Kavanaugh. Senator Lisa Murkowski has called for an FBI investigation.4 Maine Senator Susan Collins remains undecided and is being inundated with constituents calling and flooding her offices.
But the final vote could come as soon as Tuesday, and MoveOn is launching a massive final push to stop him, including protests, rallies, and ads calling on the key undecided senators to do the right thing.
Will you chip in to help stop Brett Kavanaugh before it's too late?
Thanks for all you do.
