Plea from NAACP President

Not even 24 hours after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, President Trump and Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, began their plans to compromise our democracy by hastily filling her vacant Supreme Court seat ahead of election day. We cannot let this happen. For months, we’ve known that our very lives were at stake with this election, and now this administration is desperately bent on setting the stakes even higher. RBG left behind a legacy that upheld equity, fairness and the elimination of discrimination. President Trump's record speaks for itself – with two Supreme Court appointees who have already proven to be hostile to civil rights, his next pick is all but sure to be an extremist. We have to stop him now. The Senate has a duty to hold the Supreme Court seat open until the next president is sworn in. This was RBG’s dying wish, and it is also what Mitch McConnell forced the Senate to do during President Obama’s last year. Contact your Senators today and urge them to keep RBG’s seat open until after inauguration day next year. The presidential election is already underway, and our community is already voting. President Trump should not use the Supreme Court seat as a last ditch attempt to further pull this country away from progress. We can’t let him. Friend, this is one of the most urgent requests I’ve asked you for this year. The conscience and integrity of our democracy hang in the balance, and it’s up to us to save them. Contact your Senators today and demand that the seat stay open. It is the right thing to do.
