When you sign, we'll add your name to the following petition to United States Senators (you can read more below the form):
We demand you reject Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. We demand you reject all nominees who will not defend the laws that support us in caring for our loved ones.
The #CaringMajority works every day for a future in which we can all be there for our families, live with dignity, and thrive. We work for a future where no matter the color of our skin or where we come from, our care is valued, and our families are protected. In order to bring this future to life we must ensure our values are reflected in our culture and laws.
We demand Supreme Court justices who will uphold laws that support families and ensure our values are brought to life.
We know that President Trump’s nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is not that kind of Supreme Court justice. He has stated that the office of president is above the law and immune from criminal or civil prosecution and was the sole dissenting vote in Seven-Sky v Holder, a landmark case upholding the Affordable Care Act.
The danger posed by Kavanaugh isn’t in some far-off future docket. It’s right now. For example, Trump’s Department of Justice has already refused to defend a lawsuit filed by 19 states seeking to throw out the ACA’s pre-existing condition protections, jeopardizing the coverage of at least 52 million people. The Trump administration now has the opportunity to appoint a new justice who will almost certainly push to gut the protection of these millions plus the future coverage of the additional 68 million people living with pre-existing conditions.
The future we imagine for our country is one in which care, in all its forms, is valued and guides our culture and laws. We need a Supreme Court that will work for family caregivers, professional caregivers, people with disabilities, seniors, and working families who need child care.
Sign on today and take a step towards this future!
