“I am here today not because I want to be: I am terrified.”

With those words, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford opened her historic testimony in front of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, bravely speaking as millions of Americans watched her tell her story of sexual assault. Of how Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge locked her into a bedroom where Kavanaugh pinned her down on the bed and sexually assaulted her. How they laughed at her while it happened.

“Indelible in [my mind] is the laughter, the uproarious laughter between the two, and they’re having fun at my expense,” Dr. Blasey Ford testified.

With Dr. Ford’s testimony, coupled with additional allegations of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior, there are deep and concerning questions about Brett Kavanaugh’s character, and whether he deserves a lifetime appointment to the the highest court in the country.

Join in calling on the U.S. Senate to vote down Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination. 

In her testimony, Dr. Ford discussed the enormous personal risk she took on by coming forward. She has been called vile names, received death threats, been forced to leave her home and to hire security guards. She described the emotional toll of this process: “I’ve had to relive this trauma in front of the world.”

Absent an FBI investigation, and in light of several very credible allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, the U.S. Senate has no choice but to vote no on this nomination.

We owe it to our children to take the allegations against Mr. Kavanaugh very, very seriously. We owe it to them to listen, to have the real conversations, and to never ever brush aside allegations of attempted rape, sexual assault and harassment as “rough play” or “boys will be boys.”

Join in asking the U.S. Senate to stand up at this powerful moment in history, to listen to women who have been ignored or brushed aside for too long, and to make sure that those who seek lifetime appointments on the highest court in the country have the kind of character that our sons and daughters can aspire to.
