Dear MoveOn member,
Despite the Trump team's being under an active criminal investigation, Mitch McConnell wants to ram Trump's lifetime Supreme Court appointment—extremist nominee Neil Gorsuch—through confirmation this week. And he may break the Senate in the process.1
It's up to us to make sure that McConnell doesn't have the votes to break the Democratic filibuster or use the "nuclear option" to turn the Senate into his personal rubber stamp—and that we stop an administration under an active criminal investigation from confirming a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.
If you're ready to fight, can you join the Ready to Resist call this Sunday, April 2 at 8 p.m. ET (7 CT/6 MT/5 PT)?
call will feature an all-star list of guests and trainers:
- Heather McGhee, President of Demos, will fire us up with a vision of democracy and economic justice ahead of the vote on Trump's Supreme Court pick and the upcoming Tax Day protests.
- Senator Chuck Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, who is leading the charge to uphold a filibuster to keep Gorsuch from being confirmed to the Supreme Court, will describe how people everywhere can make a difference this week.
- Luz Sosa, Latino Outreach Organizer with Citizen Action of Wisconsin, and Anthony Newby, Executive Director of Minneapolis's Neighborhoods Organizing for Change, will provide expert training on how to make the most of April's Resistance Recess, when Congress is back home to hear from us.
- I'll be moderating call.
Last Friday, when Paul Ryan canceled the vote on Trumpcare, was a massive defeat for Donald Trump and his radical agenda. It did more than keep 24 million Americans from being robbed of their health care—it gave us a glimpse of just how powerful our Resistance movement is and demonstrated what we're capable of.
We can propel our health care victory into another this week: protecting our democracy and our communities from Trump's extremist Supreme Court nominee.
As we heard on the last Ready to Resist call, defeating Gorsuch and keeping Trump's legacy from impacting the Court for a generation is a must.2 We'll hear on this call what we can do to help Senate Democrats stand strong and to pressure key Republicans.
