Tell the Senate: We Object!

At no point in our history has America been more in need of an independent judiciary to stand up to a runaway and reckless administration. With President Trump escalating his attacks on our most basic rights, the courts are one of the last safeguards against his dangerous agenda. But now he wants to undermine the independence of the courts by nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. With a long history of siding with powerful interests over everyday Americans, Gorsuch isn’t the independent voice who will stand up to Trump’s unconstitutional overreach. We just can’t afford to elevate Trump’s extreme agenda with a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court. Now is the time to join with people from all walks of life who are standing up to say ‘we object!’
