Hi everyone,

Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic and call to end racial injustices in America, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is in the shadows planning to confirm candidates to our Circuit Court (Judicial Branch), one of whom “was deemed ‘not qualified’ for the District Court judgeship by the American Bar Association last year”.

He previously barred Obama from filling a seat by saying one year away from an election was too close, but now, only a few months away, he plans to rush and fill the seats. He has pressured older judges to retire, in hopes to fill even more seats with younger judges who will carry out his agenda.

Politicians on both sides have expressed the desire to hold off on any nominations until we make it through this pandemic and work to reform our society, especially pertaining to pressing concerns, such as the significant amount of racial injustices within our nation.

It does not matter what your political view is; this should not be a decision that is rushed into when there is so much going on in our country.

Please sign and share so that we can get this up to the Federal Government and make everyone aware of how much this could impact our future!
