Action 1: Slow down confirmations of extremist judges

It's not just the Supreme Court. During the Obama Administration, the Republican Senate refused to confirm federal judges all over the country. While we were busy with health care, the Trump Administration has been quietly proposing far-right judges, based on a list from the Heritage Foundation, and the Senate has been confirming them. The Judicial Branch is crucial for protecting the rights of Americans, as we have seen in rulings against the Muslim bans and other overreaches by the Trump Administration. 

We need to prevent this strategy from working. Ask our Senators to slow this down by withholding consent and any other procedural mechanisms available to them.

Senator Patty Murray:
DC - 202-224-2621
Seattle - 206-553-5545

Senator Maria Cantwell:
DC - 202-224-3441
Seattle - 206-220-6400

Script:

“My name is [name], and I’m calling from [city, zip]. I am calling to ask the Senator to slow down the confirmation of right-wing judges, using any procedural mechanisms available to her, including withholding consent. The Republican leadership refused to fill these jobs with Obama's nominees, and is now proposing extremist candidates. We need the court to protect our civil rights. Thank you.”
