Rest in Power, Justice Ginsburg
It is with deep and profound sadness that we mourn the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg earlier this month. A fierce advocate for women’s rights and civil rights, Justice Ginsburg’s vision for America transcended race, age, gender, and economic lines.
She was a beloved champion of justice for all. Justice Ginsburg’s wisdom, determination, and dedication to equal rights embodied the League’s belief in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.
A SCOTUS Confirmation Must Not Be Rushed
The American people deserve a Supreme Court confirmation process that builds trust in our democracy and ensures an independent judiciary without compromising any more lives. We deserve a Senate that keeps Americans safe during a pandemic that has already claimed over 200,000 lives. It is up to us to hold our Senators accountable.
Now is not the time to rush a lifetime appointment to the United States Supreme Court. Supreme Court Justices make decisions that impact every American. They require a thorough vetting process that is transparent to the American people. Such a process would be undermined if rushed through.
Contact your Senators and tell them why this confirmation process can’t be rushed, especially while millions of Americans suffer in the pandemic.
VOTE411—Now in Spanish!
This month we launched our award-winning election website VOTE411.org in Spanish, in partnership with the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund.
Providing critical election information on VOTE411 in Spanish has long been a dream of our organization, and we are so proud to provide this ahead of the 2020 general election so Spanish-speaking voters have all the information they need to make a plan to vote.
Through the remaining election season, information on VOTE411.org will be updated daily to reflect any changes to rules or deadlines that voters should follow.
