Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spent her career fighting for equality, affirmative action, and voting rights. She was a trailblazer in every sense of the word, breaking the proverbial glass ceiling for women in her field. She was and will be a feminist icon for generations to come, and she had one dying wish: Delay the vote to replace her on the Supreme Court until after the 2020 election.
Republican leaders have vowed to plow ahead, directly contradicting their stance in 2016, when they refused to hold a vote on the confirmation of Merrick Garland—nominated by President Barack Obama—during a presidential election year. As Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, recently put it, “we must act fairly and consistently—no matter which political party is in power."
We are raising funds to put a billboard up in Washington, D.C. to tell Senators that this political hypocrisy will not stand, and that the fate of their future as public servants depends on how they act now. With your help, we can amplify our voices directly to the highest chambers of government.
