A hundred activists met in Berkeley last Thursday to learn the facts about Brett Kavanaugh, nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court with a troubling record that raises serious questions about his views on unchecked presidential power and whether he will protect the rights of the most vulnerable among us.
Our special thanks to meeting co-sponsors California Civil Rights Coalition, Equal Justice Society, The Center for Independent Living, Inc., People For the American Way, Indivisble East Bay, and to our speakers: Eva Paterson, Leslie Proll, Amy Everitt, Raymundo Jacquez III, Noreen Farrell, Linh Nguyen, and Dan Roth!
There are a number of concrete steps you take to help block this nomination.
If you are a Californian, thank Senator Feinstein for her relentless quest to get all ONE MILLION Kavanaugh documents before any hearing goes forward. Thank Senator Feinstein and Senator Kamala Harris for opposing this confirmation.
