Postpone Kavanaugh Confirmation Proceedings

September 17, 2018

With the addition of new and developing allegations of sexual misconduct from Judge Kavanaugh’s past, it is unconscionable that hearings move forward without further investigation.

We must believe his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, and postpone the hearings or vote no. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, one-third of the men on the court will have been publicly accused of sexual assault or harassment.

Pressure is mounting today, as all 10 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have called for a delay of Thursday’s vote. The hearings should have been stopped when the GOP refused to release his complete record.

Kavanaugh is a threat to women’s rights, period. Voting to confirm him supports the elimination of Roe vs. Wade, the criminalization of abortion, and women’s rights to make choices about their own bodies, and the possibility of being the decisive vote for many other issues including the Affordable Care Act, shielding Trump from accountability for illegal or corrupt acts, and LGBTQ rights and equality, to name a few of many, many more.

As Ilyse Hogue from Pro-Choice America said, “These sexual assault charges come on top of charges of perjury and indications of extreme views that make the majority of Americans oppose his confirmation. He has shown throughout his professional tenure and in these hearings a lack of respect for women and our bodily autonomy. The stakes are too high to allow this nomination to move forward.”

Please call your senators today and demand that they #Stop Kavanaugh: 202-224-3121 #postponethehearing #metoo #resist

HUNDREDS OF BLACK AND MEXICAN FAMILIES FILE RACIAL REPARATIONS CLAIM AGAINST CITY OF PALMS SPRINGS

While promoting an image of Hollywood luxury in the 1950s and 1960s, the City of Palm Springs’ racially restrictive covenants prohibited Black people from sharing that good life or living in white neighborhoods. Instead, Black and Mexican Americans could only build homes in the Section 14 area of the Agua Caliente tribe’s reservation. Then, over a 10-year span from the late 1950s through the 1960s, Palm Springs hatched a plan to demolish Section 14 for the purposes of developing it into more lucrative commercial enterprises. To gain possession of this prime downtown real estate, the city hired contractors to bulldoze the privately-owned houses, often with personal property and belongings inside, and then the city sent the Palm Springs Fire Department to burn the destruction.  Black and Mexican residents were often forced to flee Section 14 with only what they could carry.
