New York — In response to President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Stosh Cotler, CEO of Bend the Arc: Jewish Action, released the following statement:
“President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, is an affront to the values and priorities of a vast majority of the American Jewish community. From workers’ rights to civil rights, from reproductive rights to LGBTQ rights and immigrants’ rights, this nominee’s track record is hostile toward the issues our community has fought for over generations, and he has no business serving on the court.
“The President and Senate Majority Leader lack the moral authority to radically shift the balance of our nation’s highest court. But the American people have a voice in this process through our elected Senators, and we demand that the Senate reject this radical, dangerous nominee.”
