Democracy In Action

Join the Resistance! Get a Full Vetting of SCOTUS Nominee Gorsuch

Join the movement!

Contact your senator today to get the full vetting of SCOTUS Nominee Neil Gorsuch. Americans deserve to hear about his pro-corporate, anti-individual legal views. He has ruled consistently in favor of corporations and business and against consumers and employees. He is out of the mainstream with a clear political agenda which will not provide an independent judicial check on the administration. Make your voice heard, reach out to your senator and ensure that Gorsuch's full judicial background is exposed for the American people: (202) 224-3121. Click here to get more direct contact information for your senator.

 

We heard powerful testimony from Democracy Initiative partners last week about why Judge Neil Gorsuch is wrong for the Supreme Court. The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on Judge Gorsuch's nomination on Monday, April 3.

Here is some of the testimony, please share with your members and network:

"Our concern regarding Judge Gorsuch's nomination is grave and simple: Working people cannot be assured a fair shake from a Justice Gorsuch." 
Jody Calemine, CWA General Counsel

"What’s at stake today is the very shape and structure of our democracy: the way we make decisions about everything from who gets health care to whether a family with a full time worker will live in poverty; and whose voices are heard in that process.” 
Heather C. McGhee, President, Demos

"The right to vote is too important and we must understand whether Judge Gorsuch is committed to interpreting and preserving what remains of the Voting Rights Act." 
Kristen Clarke, President and Executive Director, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law

"Judge Gorsuch has expressed a consistent willingness to close the courthouse doors to citizens and the public while holding them wide open for corporate and industrial interests.” 
Pat Gallagher, Sierra Club, Environmental Law Program Director
