Why We Fight: The Supreme Court

Last night, Donald Trump announced his nominee for the Supreme Court. He has said over and over that he intends to nominate someone who would resemble one of the Court’s most conservative ideologues, and, unfortunately, he followed through on that promise yesterday.

This comes after Republicans abandoned their constitutional duties for the better part of a year by failing to allow a vote on Judge Merrick Garland.

Whether it’s a fight over a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions, public sector unions, voting rights, or marriage equality- this one vote on the court could make the difference. So we won’t sit idly by while Donald Trump nominates a ultra-conservative judge who threatens our Constitution and our values as an American people.

That’s why we fight.
