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:
Andrew Brasher, nominated to the US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, has served as a district court judge for just six months and previously built a career out of eroding legal protections for vulnerable communities, including voting rights for people of color and access to reproductive health services.
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 these nominees. 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 Eleventh Circuit nominee Andrew Brasher and district court nominee Cory Wilson. Both Brasher and Wilson have dedicated their careers to rolling back reproductive and voting rights. They are ultraconservative, partisan ideologues rather than the fair, independent arbiters that we need. Please protect our courts and our rights by opposing and speaking out against Brasher and Wilson. Thank you.
