Dear MoveOn member,
Outraged. That's just one word to describe how I feel about Brett Kavanaugh's lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court despite the courageous and inspiring protests that have riveted the nation for weeks. But here's another word: determined.
It will take time to digest this news and grieve this loss. And yet all of us, together, must act—and for those ready, we can take effective action right now.
There are only 30 days to the midterm elections. Republicans must pay for putting a liar on the Court, and stripping away their power by seizing their majority in Congress is the very best way to ensure they do.
Want to do something effective right now to help ensure that Republicans pay on Election Day and to help elect lawmakers who believe survivors, listen to women, and fight for all of us? Please click here to find impactful opportunities to #VoteThemOut.
And if you haven't RSVP'd already, you can also join tens of thousands of fellow participants on tonight's Resist & Win National Organizing Call—Sunday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m. ET (6:30 CT/5:30 MT/4:30 PT). Rising progressive champions and devoted activists will lead a conversation on how to take our anger and funnel it into a program to win everywhere on November 6. Don't miss Ana Maria Achila, whose courageous confrontation with Jeff Flake in an elevator last week helped cause the one-week delay in Kavanaugh's confirmation.
History will remember the all-out progressive fight to stop the GOP from ramming Kavanaugh's nomination through. MoveOn members locked arms with allies in every state in the nation—driving forward some of our most passionate and powerful work ever.
Our job now, Eddie, in the wake of this loss, is to make sure every single voter who heads to the polls on November 6 remembers.
Together, let's channel our anger and our sorrow into ending GOP control of the House and perhaps even the Senate by working around the clock for the next 30 days.
MoveOn members are organizing thousands of voter contact actions in key districts across the country in the days and weeks ahead. Click here to sign up right now. (Remember, voter contact work is the very best way to ensure that progressive champions prevail on Election Day. It is the most effective way to end Republican control of Congress.)
And that's on top of four national organizing calls, during which tens of thousands of participants will learn how to take action to win in November with speakers including Senators Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Don't miss tonight's call, which will help us funnel our outrage in this moment into fueling the fight to hold Trump, McConnell, and the entire GOP accountable.
We have to remember, for now, the GOP controls the House, Senate, and presidency. Kavanaugh's nomination should have been a quick-and-easy done deal, but it wasn't.
Because of tireless MoveOn members who—in the last few weeks—drove more than 100,000 calls, led hundreds of actions with tens of thousands of participants, delivered hundreds of thousands of petition signatures, helped drive more than 5 million views on critical video footage, and so much more.
Our campaign to stop Kavanaugh laid bare the stakes around winning back the House and maybe even the Senate in the midterm election and it exposed a resilient and powerful electorate on the move for justice.
We're counting down to Election Day, and electoral campaigns are ramping up into overdrive.
Let's be in the streets and on the doors and on the phones—every day until Election Day to #VoteThemOut.
Thanks for all you do.
–Anna, Schuyler, Reggie, Erica, and the rest of the teamP.S. Remember, tonight's national call features Democratic primary winner and progressive champion Rashida Tlaib and anti-Kavanaugh activist Ana Maria Archilla—who held open the door of an elevator and made Senator Jeff Flake listen to her personal story. Sign up now!
Here is what Michael Moore has to say about MoveOn: "MoveOn is working around the clock to help organize and turn out volunteers to get out the vote in November. I know that MoveOn members like you are moving heaven and earth to win this election. We're the majority. But we need to rise up. That's the only way out of this mess." Will you chip in $3 a week to help win this election? (MoveOn will contact you shortly after Election Day to see if you want to modify or cancel your donation.)
