Add your name to support Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

We stand in support of Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick. We believe them.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

I started a petition, because I believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and want her to know the public also believes that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her. She is bravely taking her experience to the Senate on Thursday and could use our support in the face of threats—and ongoing criticism from Donald Trump and Republican officials.1

Now, as more stories come out about Brett Kavanaugh's treatment of women—including Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick—it's important we stand with the women who are bravely coming forward.

Add your name to tell Dr. Blasey Ford and the Senate Judiciary Committee that you believe the accusations made against Brett Kavanaugh.

We stand in support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick. Their allegations deserve a respectful audience and response from the Senate Judiciary Committee. We believe them.

Troubling content in Kavanaugh's high school yearbook further reflects out-of-control drinking, partying, and disrespect of women. Julie Swetnick says she was drugged and gang raped at a party where Brett Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present. Other times, she witnessed the two engaging in harassing and threatening behavior toward young women.2 Deborah Ramirez also says Kavanaugh exposed himself to her in college and made forced sexual contact.3

I am personally haunted by the way Anita Hill was treated and my lack of action to support her. We must do more to support women who come forward to challenge institutions of power and privilege. This is our chance.

Let's show Dr. Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick that we're with them. We believe women.
