This is great news and a testament to the work we've done over the last few weeks. But Republicans are dumping millions of dollars into their efforts to appoint a right-wing ideologue to the highest court. People like you, Anne, are all that's standing between Trump's "Yes Man" and a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

Call Senator Gary C. Peters at (202) 224-6221. Demand they use every tool—including supporting a filibuster—to keep block Gorsuch's nomination. (If you've already called, thank you! Please keep calling and forward this message to your friends in state and ask them to make calls.)

Your letter is more likely to be read if it is unique. Talking points and further direction are provided.


Many Senate Democrats wanted to wait until after hearing directly from Gorsuch before revealing whether they'd support a filibuster. What we know about Gorsuch gives Senate Democrats more than enough reasons to block his appointment: On top of everything, the FBI is actively investigating Donald Trump's presidential campaign for colluding with Russia. A possibly illegitimate administration should not be making lifetime appointments.

We need Senate Democrats to filibuster this nomination and demand a nominee who represents our values—not one that would dismantle hard-won rights in order to favor corporations and extremist ideology.

Call Senator Gary C. Peters at (202) 224-6221. Tell them that you oppose Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court.

Many Senate Democrats wanted to wait until after hearing directly from Gorsuch before revealing whether they'd support a filibuster. What we know about Gorsuch gives Senate Democrats more than enough reasons to block his appointment:
  • He defended"Bush-Era torture policies while at the Justice Department
  • He claims that he's a "fair judge," but he sided"with corporations in 91% of pension cases
  • Gorsuch sided"with religious employers seeking to limit their employees’ rights to birth control coverage in the lower court decision in Hobby Lobby
  • Ruled against the needs of an autistic child in public education--a ruling overturned"by the current Supreme Court.
  • Was a choice pick of the bigoted"extremists and the far-right."Trump own administration hailed"him as having "the vision of Donald Trump."
On top of everything, the FBI is actively investigating Donald Trump's presidential campaign for colluding with Russia. A possibly illegitimate administration should not be making lifetime appointments.

We need Senate Democrats to filibuster this nomination and demand a nominee who represents our values—not one that would dismantle hard-won rights in order to favor corporations and extremist ideology.
