  4. Today, Senate hearings begin for Donald Trump’s right-wing Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch–and believe it or not, most Democrats aren’t planning to fight his confirmation.1

    In fact, Democrats still plan to let him cruise by despite new reports that Gorsuch believes employers have the right to discriminate against women if they are, or plan to be, pregnant.2

    Linda, this is an emergency. The Supreme Court is the last firewall against the injustices of Trump’s administration, but news outlets are reporting that Democrats are “cowering,” fearing retribution from conservative constituents.3

    When thousands of us marched, protested, and called Democrats in Congress, they finally started to take a tougher stand against Trump. Now, if thousands speak out again, we can force Democrats to stand up for what’s right and resist Gorsuch’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Will you sign this emergency petition?

    Tell the Senate Democrats: “Not fighting is unacceptable. Filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court!”
    Sign the petition

    Gorsuch not only thinks women manipulate employers by getting pregnant–he has also repeatedly tried to gut birth control coverage, has allowed employers to discriminate and sexually harass women, and consistently sides with “religious freedom” and corporations over LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.4

    But Senate Democrats are scared. In fact, Democratic leaders have asked senators to avoid any public commitment to blocking Gorsuch. It’s unacceptable.5

    Today might be our final chance to save the Supreme Court and the rights of generations to come from the likes of Gorsuch. In the past, Democrats needed pushing to stand up against Trump and his agenda. If enough people push them this time around while all eyes are on Gorsuch’s hearings, Senate Democrats will be forced to support a filibuster.

    Will you sign the emergency petition to demand Senate Democrats stop Neil Gorsuch?

    Thanks for taking action.
