WASHINGTON, D.C., October 6, 2018  – Following today’s Senate vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, AFJ President Nan Aron released the following statement:

“Brett Kavanaugh may be on the Supreme Court, but he will always have an asterisk next to his name.  So we’re not thinking solely about him today.  We’re thinking about the extraordinary bravery of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and all the survivors who came forward. We’re thinking about the tremendous energy of Americans who watched this confirmation process and were outraged by it, and are ready to fight for our courts like never before.  We’re thinking about all the Americans who really understand the stakes for women, workers, racial equity, LGBTQ rights and more, when it comes to our courts. So yes, this is a bad day for the Court, but it is a very important day for the resistance.”
