SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY
Stand for Justice Ginsberg and Stop the Trump Supreme Court Nominee
Ruth Bader Ginsberg was for a true fighter for justice and equality. Her dying words of "My most fervent wish is that I not be replaced until a new president is installed." Trump and McConnell, have voiced that they are going to put up a nominee for justice, possibly as soon as Wednesday. Hypocrisy in high gear - remember the words of McConnell in 2016 "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” As a member of Olympia Indivisible it is time for ALL of us to step forward and voice your opposition in this very important and long term appointment.
(from Indivisible National)This is a winnable fight -- but we need to be loud. Yes, this will be an uphill battle. So our immediate focus must be to peel off enough Republicans who are willing to follow Mitch McConnell’s own rule from 2016 (see: this great video Pablo from our team made) that the Senate cannot confirm a Supreme Court justice in an election year. But you’re not off the hook if you have Democratic Senators: For Democrats, we want to shore up their unified opposition to a nominee even before he/she is announced by Trump (which we’re hearing could happen as early as Wednesday).
What does that mean for us? It means we need to drive thousands of calls to all Senate offices over the next few days. You can find all our asks here and we’ll continue updating that page as things develop, but here’s the details as of right now:
John Flory says Protect the Results!

What do Motown, the Model T, and Gerald Ford Have in Common?
They all hail from the state of Michigan!
We’re working to flip Michigan to blue by registering voters until the end of September. We could use your help. You’ll need a phone and a computer and a little training.
Join us for a training followed by a Phone Call Session.
