Action Alert: Block Gorsuch Nomination to SCOTUS

IL NOW Action Alert – Block Neil Gorsuch’s Nomination for Supreme Court Justice!March 20, 2017

 Good afternoon and Happy Spring!

 

Call Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth today and URGE THEM TO BLOCK Neil Gorsuch for SCOTUS!

 

Neil Gorsuch has a long history of hostility towards the claims of workers, consumers, children, immigrants, LGBTQIA people, incarcerated people, people with disabilities. He has shown a track record of siding with billionaires and big corporations.

He is not a supporter of women’s rights, will not protect their access to birth control, nor their constitutional right to abortion through Roe v. Wade.

 

We need 41 Senators to block Gorsuch.

URGE Durbn and Duckworth to filibuster this nomination

 

Senator Dick Durbin: 202-224-2152

Senator Tammy Duckworth: 202-224-2854
