CALL TO ACTION:
Trump’s Federal Court Nominees – Supreme Court, Circuit (appeals) Courts, and District (trial) Courts
While Americans may know about Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, many may not know that he is also nominating judges for federal district and appellate court positions at a rapid pace. Some of his appointments have been very controversial, possessing extreme views, and a few so far, frankly, very unqualified. Our democracy depends upon the courts being fair and impartial yet there seems to be an unbridled push to make even the Supreme Court a partisan institution.
We must educate ourselves on the federal courts and Trump’s nominees for each. An invaluable resource for doing so is the “Judiciary Tracker” by Indivisible East Bay in California. Here, you can find out who is nominated for which court, background on the nominee, call scripts for calling senators, and much more. We simply must keep our courts out of the political fray and make our voices heard. Please make sure to call your senators daily, or as often as possible, to register your opposition to these appointments, including Brett Kavanaugh. Unless we stop these appointments, the consequences will reverberate through our judiciary, and our country, for generations. https://indivisibleeb.org/judiciary/monitoring-nominees/federal-judiciary-tracker/.
