The FBI Must Investigate Kavanaugh

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has publicly accused Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape, and has demanded that the FBI do a full investigation of this incident before hearings on his nomination proceed.

The stakes are high because the accused man has been nominated to the Supreme Court, but the request is a simple one: that a horrible crime be properly and fairly investigated, and that the nation not reward the perpetrator with one of its top jobs until they fully know what he's done.

Dr. Ford knows that coming forward may ruin her life, and she's doing it anyway, because her country needs to know the character the people sitting on its highest court. Please stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and demand a full FBI investigation of Kavanaugh.

ACTION 1: Call our Senators

Senator Murray called for an FBI investigation on Twitter yesterday - let her know we appreciate it and we want to her to keep it up, and let Senator Cantwell know that we'd like to hear from her too.

Sen. Patty Murray--DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545

Sen. Maria Cantwell--DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

Don’t forget to fill out our call log so that we can track our impact: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Sample Script:

“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I'm calling to ask the Senator to keep fighting the Kavanaugh nomination with everything she has.

[If Murray] I'd like to thank the Senator for calling for an investigation into Kavanaugh's sexual assault allegations. It is crucial that this high office not be awarded to a man who has himself gotten away with a horrible crime - please continue to do everything in your power to halt all proceedings until an investigation is completed."

[If Cantwell] In particular, in light of the sexual assault allegations against the nominee, I want the Senator to insist that there is a full FBI investigation of the allegations, as was requested by Dr. Ford. No hearing should be scheduled until the investigation is complete. Please thank the Senator for everything she's done so far, and ask her to keep fighting for us."

#MeToo in the Supreme Court

Official Daily Action for Wednesday, September 19

There are many reasons to oppose Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, and over the weekend an even more powerful reason came to light. We've known from Brett Kavanaugh's judicial record that he had no respect for bodily autonomy. We've known from contradictory statements he's made to congress that he's not honest.

Now, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford tells an awful and credible story about a night in high school when the current nominee to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, and another boy, pulled her into a bedroom, locked the door, turned the music up loud, and tried to rape her. She got away because they were drunk and all three fell off the bed. Dr. Ford has talked about this incident with friends and a therapist for years. She passed a polygraph test last week. She knows that coming forward may ruin her life, and she's doing it anyway, because her country needs to know the character the people sitting on its highest court.

Please stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

ACTION 1: Call our Senators

  • Sen. Patty Murray--DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545

  • Sen. Maria Cantwell--DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

Don’t forget to fill out our call log so that we can track our impact: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Sample Script:

“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I'm calling to ask the Senator to keep fighting the Kavanaugh nomination with everything she has. In particular, in light of the sexual assault allegations against the nominee, I want the Senator to insist that:

(pick one or more)

  1. There is a full FBI investigation of the allegations, as was requested by Dr. Ford. No hearing can be scheduled until the investigation is complete.

  2. The other boy who was involved in the assault, Mark Judge, must testify. If he won't do so voluntarily, then subpoena him.

  3. No questions will be allowed of Dr. Ford about what she was wearing, how much she had to drink, or her sexual history. However, those questions must be asked of Mr. Kavanaugh and Mr. Judge.

Please thank the Senator for everything she's done so far, and ask her to keep fighting for us."

ACTION 2: Help get anti-Kavanaugh calls to key Senators from their voters

Support Florida Voting Rights, and Continue Opposing Kavanaugh!

OFFICIAL DAILY ACTION FOR Tuesday, Sept.18: Support Florida Voting Rights, and Continue Opposing Kavanaugh!

ACTION 1: Support the Florida initiative to restore voting rights to people convicted of felonies

Remote Phone Banking

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

2:30 PM - 5:30 PM (Pacific Time)

Please register now and invite others!

Background

The New York Times reports that racial disparities in criminal sentencing have caused massive voter disenfranchisement. As a result, 21.3% of African-Americans in Florida cannot currently vote.

Florida is a perennial battleground in presidential elections (remember the 2000 recount that elected George W. Bush?). RIGHT NOW, Democrat Andrew Gillum is running a great campaign to be elected Florida’s next Governor.

Gillum is taking the high road.

His opponent, a strong Trump supporter, is using racially-charged attack language.

Please help restore the rights of Florida voters, turn out voters to elect Andrew Gillum, and help Democrats win Florida in the 2020 presidential election!

ACTION 2: Stop the Kavanaugh Nomination

Until there is resolution on Brett Kavanaugh, we are doing a marathon of calls and actions to stop his appointment to the Supreme Court. This is an emergency, not just because it will tip the Supreme Court conservative for a generation, but also because a man who faces legal troubles (Trump) is about to be allowed to appoint his own judge.

Democrats must speak out loudly about the credible allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh, and the lies he may have told to the Judiciary committee.

Sen. Patty Murray: (202) 224-2621, (206) 553-5545

Sen. Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441, (206) 220-6400

Sample Script:

“Hi, my name is [NAME], from [CITY]. I’d like to ask the Senator to continue speaking out against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Please call attention to allegations that Kavanaugh assaulted Dr. Christine Ford, and lied under oath about stolen Democratic emails.”


EVENTS

Resist Trump Tuesday

We rally every Tuesday from 11:45AM-12:30PM, followed by our standing meeting with Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell's staff from 12:30-1:30PM. Please join us -- we need your voice!

Kavanaugh Marathon: Don’t Stop Until the Supreme Court is Safe

Official Action for Saturday, September 15

This weekend, join your fellow activists in getting out the vote for the critical race between Kim Schrier and Dino Rossi in Washington’s 8th Congressional District. Find an event near you at

Until there is resolution on Brett Kavanaugh, we are doing a marathon of calls and actions to stop his appointment to the Supreme Court. This is an emergency, not just because it will tip the Supreme Court conservative for a generation, but also because a man who faces legal troubles (Trump) is about to be allowed to appoint his own judge.

Senate Democrats gained a minor victory by delaying the committee vote on Judge Kavanaugh until next week. This gives us extra time to fight, but Democrats must speak out loudly about Kavanaugh’s sketchy past and the lies he may have told to the Judiciary committee.

It’s the weekend, so your call will go to voicemail, but it will send a message to our senators about the urgency of stopping Kavanaugh,

Sen. Patty Murray: (202) 224-2621, (206) 553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441, (206) 220-6400

Sample Script:
“Hi, my name is [NAME], from [CITY]. I’d like to ask the Senator continue to speak out against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Resolve Perjury Allegations. Delay the Kavanaugh Vote!

OFFICIAL DAILY ACTION FOR Tuesday, September 11:  Resolve Perjury Allegations. Delay the Kavanaugh Vote!

Due to credible perjury allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee, joined by leading Democratic groups, are calling for a delay in the vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Call your Senators to urge them to delay the Kavanaugh vote until the perjury allegations are resolved.

Senator Patty Murray: 202-224-2621 / 206-553-5545

Senator Maria Cantwell: 202-224-3441 / 206-220-6400

Script:

“My name is [name], from [city, zip].  I’m calling to ask the Senator to urge the Senate Judiciary Committee to delay Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote for the Supreme Court.  In light of allegations of perjury that have been reported in the press, it’s critical that nomination hearings be suspended until these serious allegations are resolved. “

Background:

“Newly Released Emails Show Brett Kavanaugh May Have Perjured Himself at Least Four Times” (Daily Beast)

“Brett Kavanaugh Should Face Perjury Investigation For Confirmation Testimony, Liberal Groups Tell Democrats” (Newsweek)

“Confirmed: Brett Kavanaugh Can’t Be Trusted” (The New York Times)


EVENTS:

Resist Trump Tuesday

We rally every Tuesday from 11:45AM-12:30PM, followed by our standing meeting with Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell's staff from 12:30-1:30PM.  Please join us -- we need your voice!

Kava-NOPE!

We’ve been asking you to keep the pressure on and we still are. This could be the most consequential event of Trump’s presidency and the result is NOT a done deal unless we treat it like one. We’ve asked you to call friends and family out of state. If you haven’t done that yet, please do. If you already have, Great! Thank you! Not sure what to do next? Don’t worry, our friends at NARAL Pro-Choice WA have a phone banking tool you can use from home to call people from various states to connect them to their senator’s office.

Your call could be the one that makes the difference.

Show up on September 15 to support workers

The anti-worker Freedom Foundation has been waging a war on WA workers for more than 25 years. It's up to us to hold them and their leaders accountable. Charlie Conner is a key board member who oversees the organization, an anti-union zealot and owner of a multi-million-dollar residential home development company in King County.

September 15th, his company is holding a grand opening at their newest development in South Seattle. We are going to be there to educate the community about Charlie’s history and values in leading the extremist, anti-worker Freedom Foundation.

What: Sign waving and hand-billing in front of Charlie’s new homes

When: Saturday, September 15th 12-2 pm

Where: Conner Homes’ newest development:
“Materra at Greenbridge”
9915 10th Ave SW Seattle, WA 98106

Get involved: Please email Ryan Hollander at ryan@nwaccountabilityproject.com if you and any of your friends/ family/ colleagues can attend.

Action: #StopKavanaugh

Yes, I know, we did this call yesterday, but it's so important that we're going to do it again.

Until there is resolution on Brett Kavanaugh, we are doing a marathon of calls and actions to stop his appointment to the Supreme Court. This is an emergency, not just because it will tip the Supreme Court conservative for a generation, but also because a man who faces legal troubles (Trump) is about to be allowed to appoint his own judge.

Do you know a resident of Alaska, Maine, West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Florida, or Arizona? Their Senators need to hear from them! Ask them to call their Senators and demand they VOTE NO on Kavanaugh's confirmation. It is the weekend, so the calls will go to voicemail, but a full voicemail can send a powerful message to senators. (Also you can get your friends thinking about Kavanaugh going into next week.)

Here's a script you can paste into a Facebook post, email or text message to your friends.
Ask them to call the U.S. Senate switchboard to be connected to their Senators: (202) 224-3121

Sample script for your friends in swing states:
“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I’d like to call on Senator [name] to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Please push for the hearing to be postponed until all of his records can be examined. Please VOTE NO when his confirmation comes up, and do everything you can to convince your colleagues to do the same."

Correction

In yesterday’s daily action, we advertised a counterprotest outside of Planned Parenthood. We’ve been informed that Planned Parenthood requests that we don’t engage in counterprotests outside of their clinics. It causes disruptions to their patients and escalates the conflict in ways that they don’t find appropriate or productive.

Kavanaugh Marathon: Thank our Senators for being on the right side of history and justice

OFFICIAL ACTION for Friday, September 7

This week we are doing a marathon of calls and actions to stop the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This is an emergency, not just because it will tip the Supreme Court conservative, but also because a man who faces legal troubles (Trump) is about to be allowed to appoint his own judge. 

Today, call our Senators, Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, to thank them for their decisions to vote NO on the Kavanaugh nomination. Patty Murray has been a leader on this issue pretty much from the start, and Maria Cantwell only just announced her opposition on Thursday, but we should take the time to thank them both.

Source: https://twitter.com/SenatorCantwell/status/1037826286822072328

ACTION 1: Call our Senators to say "Thank You"

Sen. Patty Murray--DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell--DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

SCRIPT:

"Hi, my name is {NAME} and I'm calling from {CITY, ZIP}. I want to thank the Senator for her decision to vote 'NO' on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. Not only are his views too extreme, but unindicted co-conspirators, like Donald Trump, should never be allowed to make lifetime appointments. I hope the Senator stands equally strong against Trump's future nominees to the courts."

Action 2: Get Friends to call their Senators

Do you know a resident of Alaska, Maine, West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Florida, or Arizona? Their Senators need to hear from them! Ask them to call their Senators and demand they VOTE NO on Kavanaugh's confirmation. Here's a script you can paste into a Facebook post, email or text message to your friends.

Ask them to call the U.S. Senate switchboard to be connected to their Senators: (202) 224-3121

[SCRIPT FOR YOUR FRIENDS IN SWING STATES]

“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I’d like to call on Senator [name] to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Please push for the hearing to be postponed untill all of his records can be examined. Please VOTE NO when his confirmation comes up, and do everything you can to convince your collegues to do the same."

Sept Clinic Defense: All Out Against Patriot Prayer

Saturday, September 8 from 8 AM – 11 AM
2001 E Madison St, Seattle, WA 98122-2959, United States

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/1661327570657042/

Last month Seattle Clinic Defense was met with a nasty surprise: Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys, two alt-right "western chauvinist" (i.e.: sexist, racist thugs) groups showed up to intimidate pro-choice activists out of our continued presence to ensure that anti-choice demonstrators can't harass patients and staff. 

Joey Gibson, failed senate candidate and Patriot Prayer leader threatened to turn the scene outside of Planned Parenthood into a "circus" when he confronted clinic defenders last month. We need everyone out to say no to anti-choice intimidation, and we won't go back to the days of clinic blockades and violence like those conducted by Operation Rescue. 

We aim to provide a peaceful, calm, pro-choice presence and the clinic will be open during the time of the defense. Please wear bright pink and bring bold, colorful signs that show that we stand with Planned Parenthood!

Kavanaugh Marathon: The Supreme Court is at Stake

This week we are doing a marathon of calls and actions to stop the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This is an emergency, not just because it will tip the Supreme Court conservative, but also because a man who faces legal troubles (Trump) is about to be allowed to appoint his own judge. 

Just like with healthcare, Republicans are disrespecting the process of democracy by refusing to yield the entirety of Kavanaugh’s records and by dumping the information they are releasing at the last minute so that Senators do not have sufficient time to read them.

Today, call the Senate Judiciary Committee and tell them that the Kavanaugh nomination must be paused so that the Senate can properly evaluate the candidate and the circumstance of his nomination.

ACTION 1: Call the Senate Judiciary Committee

Senate Judiciary Committee: 202-224-5225

SCRIPT:
“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I am calling to demand that Kavanaugh’s Senate hearings be halted until the proper documentation is provided and the Senate and the public is given enough time to properly evaluate it. The Senate and the public deserve to review Kavanaugh's full record, like we did for Kagan and Sotomayor. There is no reasonable excuse for the withholding of documents or the rush to push him through. Respect America’s constitution and democracy - release the 100,000 documents from Kavanaugh's time in the Bush White House, and delay the hearings to allow full discussion of his record.”

Background:
Constitutional Precedent that Kavanaugh should recuse himself: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/09/04/kavanaugh-hearings-recuse-himself-supreme-court-219635

Action 2: Get Friends to call their Senators

Do you know a resident of Alaska, Maine, West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Florida, or Arizona? Their Senators need to hear from them! Ask them to call their senators and demand they VOTE NO on Kavanaugh's confirmation. Here's a script you can paste into a Facebook post, email or text message to your friends. 

[SCRIPT FOR YOUR FRIENDS IN SWING STATES]
“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I’d like to call on Senator [name] to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Please push for the hearing to be postponed untill all of his records can be examined. Please VOTE NO when his confirmation comes up, and do everything you can to convince your collegues to do the same."

Save the Supreme Court. NOW! THIS WEEK!

OFFICIAL ACTION for Wednesday, September 5

The Senate hearings to confirm Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavenaugh have started. This is an emergency. We can stop this nominee, but we have to give it everything we've got. We stopped TrumpCare and we can stop this.

Our own senators will probably vote the right way. We need to call them anyway. Large numbers of calls help them make the case to other senators who are on the fence. We also need to ask the Senate Judiciary Committee to postpone the hearings untill all the records are available, and get our friends in other states to call their senators too.


ACTION 1: Call the Senate Judiciary Committee

Call the Senate Judiciary Committee right now. The lines are clear, and not enough are calling. The number is: 202-224-5225

Script

The Senate and the public deserve to review Kavanaugh's full record, like we did for Kagen and Sotomeyor. We need time to do that. What's the rush? What are they hiding? Release the 100,000 documents from Kavanaugh's time in the Bush Whitehouse, and delay the hearings for several months, to allow full discussion of his record.


ACTION 2: Call our Senators

Sen. Patty Murray--DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell--DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

Don’t forget to fill out our call log so that we can track our impact: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Script:

“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I’d like to call on Senator [name] to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. 

For Patty Murray: Thank you for fighting for our rights. Please keep it up, and do everything you can to block Judge Kavanaugh.

For Maria Cantwell: These are not normal times. It is not acceptable to avoid taking a stand. Please speak out against Judge Kavanaugh and do everything you can to block his nomination.

[pick the items that resonate with you]

  1. The Senate and the public deserve to review Kavanaugh's full record, like we did for Kagen and Sotomeyor. We need time to do that. What's the rush? What are they hiding? Release the 100,000 documents from Kavanaugh's time in the Bush Whitehouse, and delay the hearings for several months, to allow full discussion of his record.
  2. Kavenaugh showed today that he has poor judgement and a lack of empathy. He refused to shake hands with the father of one of the teens killed in Parkland. That should, by itself, disqualify him from any government job.
  3. A president who is under investigation for rigging the election and conspiring with a hostile foriegn power is in no position to appoint his own judge. The seat should be held open until after the Meuller investigation and any resulting court procedings have concluded.
  4. Judge Kavanaugh would vote to repeal Roe vs. Wade, and allow states to restrict the rights of women to control their own bodies. He hasn't been clear about whether he supports access contraception.
  5. Judge Kavanaugh has expressed the opinion that the President should be immune to prosecution. We need a Supreme Court that will hold the President accountable and preserve the rule of law.
  6. Brett Kavanaugh is one of 25 candidates hand-picked by the far-right Heritage Foundation to cement right-wing control of the SCOTUS.
  7. As a Judge, Kavanaugh has ruled that the NSA can spy on call records, 
  8. As a Judge, Kavanaugh has ruled that the president can refuse to enforce Obamacare.
  9. As a Judge, Kavanaugh has ruled that a 17-year-old undocumented immigrant in Federal custody can be denied an abortion.
  10. Confirming Kavanaugh would cement an anti-voting-rights majority on the Supreme Court for a generation. He has made decisions against the interests of marginalized groups."

ACTION 3: Get your Friends in Swing States to Call Their Senators

Do you know a resident of Alaska, Maine, West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Florida, or Arizona? Their Senators need to hear from them! Ask them to call their senators and ask them to VOTE NO on Kavanaugh's confirmation. Here's a script you can paste into a Facebook post, email or text message to your friends. 

Script for your friends in swing states

“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I’d like to call on Senator [name] to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Please push for the hearing to be postponed untill all of his records can be examined. Please VOTE NO when his confirmation comes up, and do everything you can to convince your colleagues to do the same.

Reverse Trump’s Cancellation of Federal Pay Raises

OFFICIAL ACTION for Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018: Reverse Trump’s Cancellation of Federal Pay Raises

Federal workers earn 5 percent less than they did at the start of the decade, according to the American Federation of Government Employees. Public servants were scheduled to receive a 2.1% pay raise in January, roughly matching the expected inflation rate.

Now President Trump has cancelled the pay raise, stating the cancellation is required to “put our nation on a fiscally sustainable course.” Trump estimates the cancellation will save $25 billion dollars. (1)

That amount is dwarfed by the expected $1.5 trillion cost over the next 10 years of Trump’s recent tax cut, which has benefited working Americans only modestly. (2)

“Republicans gave corporations a trillion dollar tax cut and are now cutting pay raises for social workers, janitors, painters, clerical workers, and more. It’s outrageous,” said Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). (3)

ACTION

Call Washington’s Members of Congress to Protest Trump’s Cancellation of Federal Pay Raises

Sample script: “My name is ____________ from Seattle, WA. Please support fair wages for federal workers. Fight President Trump’s plan to cancel the federal pay raise planned for January. It’s an outrage to fund tax cuts for corporations at the expense of working Americans.”

Senator Patty Murray:  (202) 224-2621

Senator Maria Cantwell:  (202) 224-3441

Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (WA-7):  (202) 225-3106

Congressman Adam Smith (WA-9):  (202) 225-8901

Battle coal deregulation and save lives

Trump and his EPA have been brutally dismantling coal regulations in an effort to prop up the coal industry. Last week the New York Times reported that, by the administration’s OWN analysis, the new rules could result in the deaths of 1,400 or more people PER YEAR, from heart and lung disease. Another 15,000 or more new cases of upper respiratory problems per year were predicted if the EPA weakens clean air regulations for the coal industry. 

ACTION: TELL MOCS TO FIGHT TRUMP'S EPA COAL PLAN

Let’s tell our MOCs that we don’t want to kill and sicken even more people for the sake of Trump’s promises to coal mines and coal plants.  Express your opposition to the EPA’s plan by contacting our Congressional representatives.

Email:

Don’t forget that you can leave voicemail for our MOCs outside of office hours:

Phone:

  • Sen. Patty Murray - DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545
  • Sen. Maria Cantwell - DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400
  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal: DC (202) 225-3106; Seattle (206) 674-0040
  • Rep. Adam Smith: DC (202) 225-8901; Seattle (425) 793-5180

Example Script for email or phone call:

“Hello, I am [calling/writing] to express my strong opposition to the EPA plan to weaken clean air regulations for the coal industry. This is irresponsible and will result in higher deaths and illness for Americans. Please fight against this action. My name is [name] and I’m [calling/writing] from [city, state].”
