Take Action! Call senators to postpone SCOTUS vote


Our right to a secular government. Reproductive freedom. Racial justice. LGBTQ equality. The survival of our environment. Our health care. All of this — and so much more — is on the line.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed to go forward with a confirmation hearing to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shortly after news of her death on Friday. We must fight back.

Voters across the country have already started casting their ballots to determine who will nominate a justice to fill the Supreme Court vacancy. Voters are energized and know what’s at stake. The Senate needs to let the people decide and not consider a SCOTUS nominee until after the inauguration.

Please call your senators today to demand that a new justice not be confirmed until after the inauguration in 2021. Please call — calls are more effective than emails.

This is a fight we can win. But we must keep up sustained pressure. If you’ve emailed your senators, give them a call today. If you’ve already called, call again and reiterate your demand. There is too much at stake to sit this one out.

All legislative offices keep a tally of calls they receive on every issue. Calling and making your position known does make a difference. Feel free to use or adapt the talking points provided. Personalized messages are always the most impactful way to reach your lawmakers. If the phone lines are busy, try looking up the phone numbers of your senators’ local offices and call there.
