No matter the issue—from marriage equality and voting rights to health care and immigration—our courts play a VITAL ROLE. We need judges who protect the Constitutional rights of all Americans, not just the wealthy and powerful.
Supreme Court decisions may make the headlines, but the reality is that lower federal courts decide hundreds of thousands of more cases every year. Whether you know it or not, the decisions they make impact your life.
Presidents nominate judges. The Senate confirms or rejects these nominees. Because they serve for life, federal judges can impact the law for decades. And the courts must be independent from the political branches.
Our Senators must confirm diverse judges with a commitment to our constitutional rights and justice and opportunity for all. Help us hold our elected leaders accountable for choosing diverse, qualified, and independent judges!
