NARAL and People’s Defense to Hold Massive Day of Action to Oppose Kavanaugh Nomination

“Stand For Justice” Rallies to Happen Nationwide on August 26th 
WASHINGTON -

NARAL Pro-Choice America, The People’s Defense, and progressive grassroots organizations will hold a national day of action, “Stand For Justice,” on August 26, 2018, Women's Equality Day. On August 26th, Americans will rally in all 50 states to demand that senators oppose Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

Groups already signed on to the day of action include: NARAL Pro-Choice America, The People’s Defense, American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Color of Change, CREDO, Daily Kos, Demand Justice, End Citizens United, Every Voice, Feminist Majority Foundation, Indivisible, MoveOn, National Women's Law Center, PCCC, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Religious Institute, Stand Up America, and the Working Families Party.

Donald Trump has long promised to only nominate a justice who will end Roe v. Wade and criminalize abortion. Trump has found his man in Brett Kavanaugh. Which is why dozens of organizations and thousands of people are ready to take to the streets on August 26th

“This August 26th, Americans will stand united in commitment for our freedom and our future to tell the U.S. Senate that they must vote to block Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the Supreme Court. Brett Kavanaugh is a sure fire vote to end the protections of Roe, criminalize abortion, and punish women just as the president promised,” said NARAL President Ilyse Hogue. “People know what is at stake in this fight. Kavanaugh would decimate reproductive rights, voting rights, workers' rights, LGBTQ rights, and immigrant rights for generations. Senators in all fifty states must listen to their constituents, and do their jobs to uphold the will of the people and the soul of our country, and block this nomination.”
