Hearings to install a new Supreme Court Justice in Ginsburg’s place are proceeding Monday, as Republicans hope to confirm a Justice in time to overturn the Affordable Care Act in November, and to assist Trump in disputing election results. Hearings are proceeding despite at least two Republican Senators on the panel being infected with coronavirus, presumably during the White House superspreader event where the nominee was announced. Barrett is an extreme right wing fanatic, and the consequences of her confirmation would be dire.
This week, our actions are:
Defend the Supreme Court
Senators Feinstein and Harris are on the Judiciary committee that will vote on Barrett’s nomination. We’re asking them to do everything in their power to prevent Trump from filling Justice Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat.
Scroll down for the call script and phone numbers.
It’s less than a month until voting ends and it’s time to pull out all the stops to oust Mitch McConnell as Senate majority leader. That means upping our volunteer hours for the next few weeks. Sign up to phone bank for key Senate race on your own schedule here: https://www.mobilize.us/indivisibleyolo/event/322664/. If we flip four Senate seats, we’ll take away his power to block Biden judicial nominees. You can call for any campaign you have been trained on and if you have any additional questions or want camaraderie during your calls, come to one of our five weekly phone bank trainings that can be found on our calendar.
Protect the Results
If we want to avoid helping Trump suppress the vote and demobilize his detractors, we have to be clear when we talk about this: Trump has not succeeded in rigging the election, and he hasn’t stolen it. No, what he’s is up to is he is trying to cheat. He’s doing this from a place of weakness, not strength. And he won’t get away with it. Why? If he tries any weak justifications of his claim that the election is a fraud, we take to the streets in a mass peaceful demonstration.

Take care, and take action!

Action: Tell your Senators – Block Trump from filling Justice Ginsburg’s seat!
- Sen. Feinstein: 415-393-0707 (SF) 202-224-3841 (D.C) (email)
- Sen. Harris: 916-448-2787 (Sacramento) 202-224-3553 (D.C.) (email)
Sample Call Script for Sen. Harris and Feinstein:
Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/ZIP CODE]. I urge Senator Feinstein/Harris to do everything in her power to prevent Trump from filling Justice Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat! Trump’s pick to fill this seat is an extreme conservative. So much is at stake with this nomination: the election, Roe v. Wade, healthcare, environment, corporate power, and LGBTQ rights, to name a few. Doing everything possible to block Trump and the Republicans from ramming through the confirmation of a right-wing fanatic is a battle we must fight, even though the odds may be against us.
I want the Senator, especially in her role as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to use every power, method, and tactic at her disposal to keep Justice Ginsburg’s seat open until after inauguration day in January. Thank you.
