Take Action: Tell Your Senators to Protect Women's Rights and Workers' Rights in the Supreme Court!

March 13, 2017

ISSUE: After Republicans in the Senate blocked President Obama's nominee for Supreme Court, Judge Merrick Garland, for an entire year, Trump has nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch. This nominee has an abominable record on women's rights and workers' rights. If he is confirmed, he could be a deciding vote in cases that could severely erode women's reproductive rights, voting rights and the rights of workers to organize collectively for improved pay and benefits. And because Supreme Court appointments are for life, he could shape U.S. laws and policies in a reactionary way for decades. Gorsuch's nomination hearing is scheduled for March 20, so it's crucial that we express our opposition now.


Get the Facts

Read about Gorsuch's record on a number of issues including women's rights, consumer rights, workers' rights, immigrants' rights, disability rights, criminal justice and LGBT rights.


Take Action!

Sample script:

"Hello, my name is ____ and I'm a constituent of Sen. ____ in zip code _____. I'm calling to urge Sen. _____ to oppose Judge Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court. His record on [women's rights, workers' rights, disability rights, etc.] is very concerning; his appointment to the Supreme Court would set us back years. I strongly urge Sen. ____ to vote NO on confirming Gorsuch to the Supreme Court."
