FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 11, 2018 (Antioch, CA)
Lambda Democratic Club of Contra Costa County Statement on SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh
If confirmed, Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh will end the Court’s majority on LGBTQI rights and help undermine and take away equal rights and protection under the law that has already been deemed constitutional for LGBTQI Americans.
Make no mistake- the clock will be turned backward for LGBTQI Americans after fighting for decades to win rights and protections against discrimination.
Kavanaugh has been involved in writing opinions on many major issues recently including Religious Freedom, Immigrant rights, Voting rights, Workers’ rights, Women’s rights, and Kavanaugh also disagreed with Justice Roberts upholding the Affordable Care Act.
We need you to join us now and stand strong together and oppose this nomination. Join Us, become a member and help us elect LGBTQI and ally candidates.
Catch the Blue Wave and Join the Lambda Democratic Club of Contra Costa County.
