This excerpt is from a piece that originally ran on June 14, 2023.
Several unions—including both U.S. teachers unions—two AFL-CIO constituency groups, Worker’s Circle, and approximately 100 other citizens’ and progressive groups have formed a mass coalition to get voters to pressure Congress to change the Supreme Court.
Other founding members include Our Revolution—the Bernie Sanders supporters from his 2016 presidential campaign—Indivisible, the Alliance For Justice, MoveOn, NARAL, and March For Our Lives, the student-led and politically effective pro-gun control group founded by survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Florida on Valentine’s Day, 2018.
Joining them are the National Employment Law Project, the NAACP’s youth division, Black Voters Matter, Catholics For Choice, the Center For Popular Democracy, The Drum Major Institute—run by two of Dr. Martin Luther King’s children—Equality California, Friends of the Earth, Indivisible, mainline Protestant and Jewish groups, the National Center for Transgender Equality, the Newtown Action Alliance, Take Back The Court, Texas Gun Sense, Ultraviolet, and others.
