#StopKavanaugh protests at Senate offices across the country
Show the Senate that you believe Dr. Ford we need to stop Kavanaugh!
Dear New Mexico MoveOn member,
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony today took our breath away. She was
unwavering, compelling, courageous, and powerful—over hours in front of the
Senate Judiciary Committee. And yet, the Republicans are still pushing to
confirm Brett Kavanaugh—with a committee vote scheduled for tomorrow morning!
Dr. Blasey Ford has done everything in her power. Now it is up to us—and we
have to move fast! Can you show up at noon on Friday at the closest office of
one of your senators? Across the country, outside Republican and Democratic
offices, people are gathering—and together, we will say, "I believe Dr. Blasey
Ford! The Senate must reject Brett Kavanaugh!"
Click here to find the Senate office nearest to you. (If there is no nearby
office or if you can't make it in person, take a photo of yourself with a
protest sign and post it on social media with hashtags #BelieveSurvivors and
#StopKavanaugh.) You can also click here to join the national Facebook page for
Wear black, and bring signs (you can download some here), with messages such as
"Believe Survivors" and "Stop Kavanaugh"—as well as, if you wish, handwritten
letters, and pictures or photos of the people you're fighting for. When you
arrive, look for other protesters so you can stand together. These are
rapid-response gatherings, without much time to prepare—so they'll be scrappy,
and that's OK. You should gather together to take photos of all of you standing
with your signs and post them on social media with hashtags such as
#StopKavanaugh and #BelieveSurvivors. Then go into the office to deliver the
message to your senators that they have a responsibility to believe survivors,
block this frenzied and offensive process, and stop Kavanaugh!
We're working with allies including Indivisible, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, the
National Women's Law Center, UltraViolet, CREDO, and MomsRising, and many more,
to help build these gatherings on short notice—and we know that MoveOn members,
friends, family, and neighbors will show up in communities around the country.
Because we all experienced outrage watching the older white men of the
Republican Party dismiss Dr. Blasey Ford and push ahead with their relentless
and brazen power grab.
Today, as the hearing took place, we made tens of thousands of calls declaring
that we believe Dr. Blasey Ford. Tomorrow, let's show up in person. By drawing
needed local media attention, delivering a message to local Senate staff, and
showing a groundswell of support for Dr. Blasey Ford and opposition to
Kavanaugh, we can create the pressure to stop this confirmation—and show there
will be dramatic consequences for senators who fail to stand with survivors and
Join at noon local time. Come to your nearest Senate office or participate
virtually. Bring a sign, a friend, and your voice! Thanks for all you do.
