Alliance for Justice (afj.org) today asked that you urge your Senators to stop Leslie Southwick’s ascension to the federal bench. In recent meetings with Senators, staff expressed doubt that their constituents care about this nomination.
AFJ has been pressing for the defeat of Leslie Southwick’s nomination to the Fifth Circuit. But despite widespread opposition to the confirmation of Judge Southwick, his nomination was voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee last month and now is headed to the Senate floor.
The Congressional Black Caucus, Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, People for the American Way, Human Rights Campaign, National Employment Lawyers Association, National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce, Mississippi NAACP, the Magnolia Bar and the Equal Justice Society are all calling for his defeat.
