Last Chance to Stop Kavanaugh – Call Now
Unfortunately, Brett Kavanaugh just got closer to confirmation. Earlier today, the Senate voted 51-49 to advance Kavanaugh's nomination to a final vote. Senator Joe Manchin was among those who voted to advance the nomination, but that doesn't mean the fight is over. He and other Senators who voted 'Yes' on this procedural vote could still vote 'NO' in the end. Please call Senator Manchin and tell him to vote NO on Kavanaugh before it's too late - (202)-224-3954. For the sake of every survivor, and for everyone of us who will be harmed by the anti-democratic decisions he will make if he gets a lifetime appointment to the court, we must continue to make our voices heard.  More

West Virginians Must Stop Kavanaugh & Protect Our Care
Now that the Senate has agreed to let the FBI investigate sexual abuse claims against Kavanaugh, there is still time to contact Sen. Manchin and tell him to ‘Just Vote No, JOE’ on the lifetime appointment to the US Supreme Court. Even if cleared by the FBI (and we believe the women) Kavanaugh is still dangerous to our health care.

Take Action to Save Our Courts
There's still time to make your voice heard. Senator Joe Manchin is continuing to solicit thoughts and concerns as he evaluates Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh ahead of a vote by the full Senate. While Kavanaugh's confirmation will push SCOTUS further to the right, it is quite possible that at the state level a single party, through a pre-planned partisan impeachment process, will seize control of the WV Supreme Court of Appeals for the next 2 years. Take action to save our courts, and if you're in the Charleston area, join us for a community conversation about the Supreme Court impeachments why they matter, and how they affect West Virginians.
