There's no doubt about it: It's been a very exciting three months for this movement. But looking ahead, we're heading into a fight that could define our country for the next generation.
President Obama's Supreme Court nominee deserves a fair hearing in the Senate. It's something OFA supporters have been talking about a lot these past few weeks. But as we close the books on this quarter, I want to emphasize how important it is that we're prepared for what's to come.
Republicans on the Judiciary Committee have already committed to doing everything in their power to block Judge Merrick Garland's confirmation. Refusing to consider any nominee of President Obama -- especially a nominee like Judge Garland, who is eminently qualified and was confirmed as a federal judge with strong bipartisan support -- is extreme and irresponsible.
President Obama did his job and nominated someone that would be an exemplary judge. And OFA supporters are going to be doing theirs -- calling for a fair hearing and a timely vote for this nominee.
Will you chip in $5 or more to help fund that work right now?
You can bet that the extreme voices in Congress and special interests won't be spending their summer lounging on the beach. They're going to be hard at work trying to prevent the President's nominee from getting a fair hearing. It's up to us to speak out against their obstructionism. Republican leaders need to do their jobs.
Diane, we've accomplished a lot these past seven years. Our country has moved forward in countless ways. But it wouldn't have been possible without people like you raising their voices.
The nomination process for our next Supreme Court Justice won't be any different. This movement is, and always has been, powered by small dollar donations -- our average donation is just $40. And every contribution counts.
Let's keep moving this country forward -- chip in whatever you can and help support OFA's work today:
