Federal courts are the last line of defense for our constitutional rights, and the judges who sit on them must be fair and independent. Nearly all of President Trump’s nominees to fill lifetime seats on federal courts have had partisan, ideological agendas and would roll back our rights rather than protect equality and justice for all. The most recent nominees are no different. If confirmed, they will continue to interpret and control constitutional rights long after the Trump administration ends. For the sake of our courts – and our rights – urge your senators to reject these dangerous nominees:
Cory Wilson, nominated to the US District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi, has a deeply partisan record — from his work as a legislator to his comments on Twitter — and has worked to limit access to abortion, marriage equality, health insurance, the ballot box, and beyond.
NCJW strongly opposes this nominee. At a time when our communities are under attack, it’s more important than ever to have federal judges who will stand as a backstop for our fundamental constitutional rights. Use the script below to call your senators and insist they reject these biased and bigoted nominees. Feel free to personalize them and include any of the above information.
Hi, my name is ______ I am an NCJW advocate from [city, state]. I urge you to oppose district court nominee Cory Wilson. Wilson has dedicated his career to rolling back reproductive and voting rights. They are ultraconservative, partisan as opposed to the fair, independent arbiters that we need. Please protect our courts and our rights by opposing and speaking out against Wilson. Thank you.
