Action Alert

Oppose confirmation of unqualified ideologue to appeals court

 

Please take a moment to oppose the confirmation of an unqualified political ideologue, Cory Wilson, to a lifetime seat on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The Senate hearing was Wednesday, May 20, and your senators are expected to vote on this nomination soon.

Wilson is a Mississippi state court judge, a position he has held for barely a year. He previously served in the Mississippi Statehouse, where his Christian Nationalist views and push to weaponize religious freedom brought him to the Trump administration’s attention. He approves giving broad religious-based exemptions to discriminate against others.

The 5th Circuit is one step below the Supreme Court and Wilson lacks the experience and temperament for such an important position.

For more details, read FFRF’s statement opposing Wilson.

Please use our fast and easy automated system to contact your senators and urge them to vote “NO” on Wilson’s confirmation. Feel free to use or adapt the talking points provided. Personalized messages are always most effective.
