Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court and a pioneering advocate for women’s rights, who in her ninth decade became a much younger generation’s unlikely cultural icon, died on Friday. She was 87.
Democrats – we need EVERYONE to take action RIGHT NOW. If you have avoided politics – NOW is not the time to be complacent and sit on your couch. PLEASE call ALL of elected officials. We cannot have another Supreme Court Justice appointed by Trump and live under a 6-3 right wing majority Supreme Court.
Honor Justice Ginsburg and fight for her progressive legacy by calling our senators NOW to demand that the hearings be held after the inaugratuion in 2021.
My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. Senate Democrats must immediately hold a press conference and state that there cannot be any Supreme Court nominations or hearings until after the inauguration in January 2021. You must hold McConnell to his own standard. Do all you can to make sure there is no Supreme Court nomination or hearings until after the inauguration January 2021.

Script: You must hold McConnell to his own standard. When Justice Scalia passed, he said” “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.” You must announce there can be no Supreme Court nomination or hearings until after the inauguration January 2021.
