SIGN NOW to stop Trump’s Supreme Court pick!

We need a robust COVID-relief package, not the confirmation of an extremist Supreme Court Justice!
Sign MomsRising's letter to the U.S. Senate calling on them to reject Trump's Supreme Court nominee and instead focus on the real national emergency: COVID-19!
Take Action Now

Dear Rob,

Unbelievably, in the middle of a pandemic, when coronavirus cases are rising, COVID-19 relief has been halted by the President and Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate. [1]

We cannot let this stand.

**We need real solutions. Sign on to tell the U.S. Senate and Trump administration to pass a robust COVID-relief package immediately.

Make no mistake: The families of the 210,000 people in the U.S. who have died of COVID-19 are devastated and afraid. The 12.6 million unemployed because of this pandemic are afraid. Those of us who have been waiting months for the Trump administration and Senate Republicans to take action on a COVID-relief plan are afraid.

And more than afraid, we are angry.

Congress needs to focus on COVID-19, NOT on rushing through the confirmation of Trump's extremist U.S. Supreme Court pick.

***SIGN OUR LETTER NOW calling on the U.S. Senate to focus on what the American people really need right now: A robust COVID-relief package, not the confirmation of an extremist Supreme Court Justice!

It's infuriating that the U.S. House of Representatives has now passed two comprehensive COVID-relief packages that address our health needs, aid to front line workers, an expansion of expired unemployment benefits, funding for childcare and K-12 schools, and expanded paid family and medical leave, yet those bills sit on Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's desk collecting dust while America's families and our economy suffer. [2]

What are U.S. Senate Republicans planning to do instead? Push through an extremist Supreme Court nominee at a time when voting for the 2020 election has already begun. President Trump's nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, is an extremist pick. She is against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) [3], reports show she doesn't believe in a woman's right to have an abortion under any circumstances [4], and she has taken anti-LGBTQ+ and anti-civil rights positions in the past. [5]

Yet, Republican U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to ram her confirmation through the U.S. Senate in the next few weeks, despite the fact that voting has already started in many states and a Supreme Court justice hasn't been confirmed this close to an election since 1864! The real emergency here is the fact that millions of people are still out of work because of COVID-19, frontline workers don't have the protection they need, and families are struggling financially while facing evictions, lack of childcare, and inability to pay their bills.

***TAKE ACTION NOW! Sign MomsRising's letter to the U.S. Senate calling on them to  focus on the real national emergency: COVID-19!

The clock is ticking. The time for the U.S. Senate to take action is NOW! We are planning on delivering your signatures at the end of this week, so we need to make sure we have as many people speaking out as possible. After you sign our letter, please forward this email to your friends and family and post our action link to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Thank you so much for everything you are doing during such a chaotic and stressful time.
