BACKGROUND:

The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s hypocritical, hyper-partisan reaction to quickly confirm a new Supreme Court Justice has further imperiled our fragile democracy. We must act now and everyday until the election to make sure our Supreme Court does not become a right wing tool for Donald Trump and the republicans and that our democracy does not die.

We must hold our members of congress to account. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who has the power to hold his democratic caucus in line and influence the full congressional delegation. Our House representatives, to make sure they understand that we expect that they will not agree to confirming a Supreme Court justice prior to the inauguration of a new president.

Simultaneously and with extreme urgency, we must do everything in our power to elect Joe Biden, flip the US senate, and elect progressive down ticket candidates who can protect us at home.

Script: Hello, I’m a constituent from [part of state] and I’m calling to demand Senator Schumer use his power as Senate Minority Leader to ensure the Senate Democrats block any Supreme Court nominee advanced by Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell.

Senate Democrats must refuse to hold any hearings or confirm any new justice until after the inauguration of the next president–and they should publicly say so, right now.

Senate Democrats must commit to use every single procedural tool available to delay proceedings and block any nominee to the Supreme Court until after the inauguration in 2021.

And Senate Democrats must make it clear that there will be clear consequences if Senator McConnell succeeds in installing a new Supreme Court Justice before the inauguration, including a commitment to expand the Supreme Court. These consequences must be explicitly communicated now.

We cannot let Justice Ginsburg’s replacement be a right-wing conservative ally of Donald Trump. I will be closely watching for [Senator]’s actions, and I will be following up.

Script: Hello, I’m a constituent from [part of district] and I’m calling to demand that Congress Member [NAME] use their power to ensure the Senate Democrats block any Supreme Court nominee advanced by Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell.

As a member of the New York delegation, I expect the Congress Member to use their organizing power and their bully pulpit to establish the party’s power. It’s time for Democrats to play offense and steer the conversation in mainstream media, on social media channels, with your constituents, and especially in the chamber.

We cannot let Justice Ginsburg’s replacement be a right-wing conservative ally of Donald Trump. I will be closely watching for the Congressmember’s actions, and I will be following up.
