We're Taking Back the Courts
Oct 6 12:00 Noon
One year ago, Mainers mobilized by the thousands to demand that Senator Collins not to support the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court because of the threat he posed to health care, abortion rights and American democracy and much more.
Women, survivors, labor advocates, abortion-rights organizations, legal scholars, faith leaders--all pleaded with Collins to break with her Party and stand with Mainers. She didn’t.
On the one-year anniversary of Senator Collins’ betrayal of the majority of her constituents, and the eve of the new Supreme Court term, Mainers are joining a powerful national movement committed to “Reclaim the Court.”
Our event in Maine happens the same day as thousands of activists also gather in DC.
Speakers in Portland will emphasize the need to loosen the grip of right-wing ideological and corporate special interest influence on the Supreme Court that Brett Kavanaugh represents, and will draw attention to Collins’ continued support of anti-choice and extremist judges in the lower Courts.
