Judge Jackson for SCOTUS!
A note before we get into this week’s actions:
First, we have to acknowledge the tragedy unfolding in Ukraine after Russia’s unconscionable invasion. If you feel moved to do so, you can make a donation here to Ukrainian aid organizations helping people on the ground.
Action of the week: Confirm Judge Jackson!
President Biden announced his nominee to the Supreme Court: Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. She’ll be the first Black woman on the Supreme Court. She’s a fantastic candidate, and as Indivisible notes, “Jackson will also be the FIRST former federal public defender on SCOTUS, and the first Justice since Marshall to have any significant criminal defense experience at all. It is CRITICAL to have a range of voices on the bench, and her experience will bring much-needed perspective.” We’re urging our Senators to quickly confirm her.
Cynthia Rodriguez for Yolo County District Attorney- #DoTheWork:
Indivisible Yolo members voted overwhelmingly at the last General Meeting to endorse Cynthia Rodriguez for Yolo County District Attorney. Cynthia Rodriguez has public defender experience and is running on a platform of “Safety and Equal Justice for Yolo County”. We’re proud to endorse her, and encourage members who want to #DoTheWork and turn that endorsement into action to consider volunteering, donating, or attending an upcoming event.
An example call script and contact numbers for this week’s action is below, plus links and details for 2 more events- a phonebank for Elaine Luria in VA led by Sister District CA-3, and a #CommunitiesNotCages rally in Sacramento this Thursday led by NorCal Resist.
We’re calling our Senators to urge them to move at all possible speed to confirm Supreme Court Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson!
