Save the Judiciary

January 9 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

With the Administration and Congress seemingly controlled by crazy people and liars, the Judiciary is more important than ever. And it has never been more imperiled. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Tillis has voted for Thomas Farr to serve on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, where about half of our state’s African-American residents live. The Eastern District has not had a black judge in its 145-year history. President Obama’s attempts to desegregate this federal bench were obstructed by Senator Burr. Thomas Farr worked with Jessie Helms for many years and was involved in his campaign of voter suppression which specifically targeted the black community in North Carolina. Meanwhile, our extremist right-wing NC General Assembly has voted to eliminate judicial primaries and is laying plans to eliminate judicial elections entirely so they can appoint judges themselves. We cannot tolerate this assault on common sense and common decency. We must stand up to white supremacy and these assaults on our democracy. #tuesdayswithtillis
