#TakeAction – June 19, 2019

Two #TakeActions today to block the Trump agenda.

🔶 Join Indivisible’s Leah Greenberg and Ezra Levin today at 12:30 pm PDT for their (new!) monthly Facebook Live
🔶 Oppose Matthew Kacsmaryk’s nomination for federal district court judge

1. (ACTION) The response to Leah and Ezra’s monthly email has been great, so they want to try something new! Every month, Ezra and Leah want to join you on Facebook Live to talk about the latest on what’s happening at Indivisible and answer some of the questions they’re getting from folks around the movement. Be sure to like Indivisible’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/indivisibleguide/) and you’ll get notified when they go live at 12:30 pm on Wednesday.

2. (ACTION) Call Senators Murray and Cantwell before 12:30 pm today, urge them to oppose Matthew Kacsmaryk’s nomination to be a federal district court judge when the Senate votes at 12:30 today.

Date: A Senate floor vote is scheduled for 12:30 pm today.

Background:
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) announced Saturday she would vote against this nominee. Matthew Kacsmaryk has been nominated for a judgeship in federal district court. He is now a lawyer for the First Liberty Institute, known for its extreme opposition to women’s reproductive rights and LGBTQ rights. He has opposed the rule under ObamaCare for coverage to include contraceptives. In Washington State he opposed a law that pharmacies are required to provide emergency birth control. On equality for LGBTQ persons, Kacsmaryk has opposed same-sex marriage, and he has supported allowing hospitals, businesses, and landlords to discriminate against LGBTQ persons because of religious beliefs. Kacsmaryk appears to have worked against any effort to ensure equality for the LGBTQ community. His extremism is noteworthy even among Trump’s nominees, who are often ultraconservative.
