WASHINGTON, DC – Nearly 1.5 million signatures have been submitted to the Senate calling on Senators to reject Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. During Kavanaugh’s hearing this week, hundreds have gathered in protest at the Capitol to make their opposition clear. The 1.5 million petitions submitted from people around the country follow a groundswell of activity that began immediately after Trump announced his nomination. The petitions accompany nearly 100,000 calls to the U.S. Senate and hundreds of events across the country demanding that senators reject Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

Brett Kavanaugh has faced unprecedented unpopularity that has only gotten worse — especially among women. The more people learn about Kavanaugh, the less they like him. Americans know Kavanaugh is extreme and a threat to their most basic freedoms — a new CNN poll confirms that this is true especially amongst women. Gallup has also reported a record-breaking lack of support for Trump’s nominee: For as long as Gallup has been tracking (the last 30 years), there has NEVER been a Supreme Court nominee who more Americans opposed than supported.

If confirmed, Brett Kavanaugh would determine the future of civil rights, immigrant rights, voting rights, LGBTQ rights, disability rights, the environment, and the right to be free from discrimination in this country. Under the Trump-Pence administration, often the courts are the last and only check on the Administration’s harmful policies. People have seen the impact of courts on major issues, such as abortion, health care, environmental issues, DACA, birth control, labor rights, and the Muslim ban.  

Petitions were collected by Planned Parenthood Action Fund, AFL-CIO, CREDO Action, League of Conservation Voters, NARAL Pro-Choice America, National Women’s Law Center, Friends of the Earth, Sierra Club, MoveOn, Jobs With Justice, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, National Council of Jewish Women, People for the American Way, and voters on Brigade.
