Statement on Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court is just another capitulation to the far-right fringe that has hijacked our judicial system — where it seeks to cement the Trump administration’s persecution of women, people of color, and LGBTQ people. Kavanaugh is sure to vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and uphold the regressive anti-women and anti-LGBTQ beliefs championed by this administration. This announcement is not only a blow to our rights today, but will impact the rights of marginalized communities for generations to come. Advocates for Youth is determined to lead in this fight to protect the freedoms, justice and voices of young people and all those who rely on the Supreme Court to protect our rights and dignity. Young people want to move this country forward, not backwards, and they are looking to their Senators to represent their interests and reject this nominee.
