Coalition Delivers 1 Million+ Petitions to #StopGorsuch

Federal Update

This morning Senators Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey joined activists and representatives from multiple organizations to deliver more than one million petition signatures opposing Judge Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court.

The rally and press conference is part of a broader week of action underway to call attention to Judge Gorsuch’s troubling views and record when it comes to siding with wealthy and powerful interests, over the rights of working people, women, and the disabled. In addition to the petition delivery today, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Richard Blumenthal held a press conference this morning with individuals harmed by Judge Gorsuch’s decisions, demonstrating the negative real-life implications for working Americans. Also, this week a letter signed by more than 120 organizations was delivered to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and tomorrow a coalition of groups is holding a call-in day encouraging members to call their senators and voice their opposition to Judge Neil Gorsuch.

PFAW is proud to be partnering with our progressive allies in opposing Judge Gorsuch. Republicans mounted an unprecedented blockade of President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, in order to use the court to enact a far-right political agenda that would harm families all across the country.
