Civil and human rights are on the line and people’s lives are at stakeFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEContact: Rafael Medina, [email protected], 202.869.0390WASHINGTON — The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, joined by 149 other organizations, today urged the Senate to oppose the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to serve as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
The letter reflects the broad range of problematic issues in Judge Barrett’s record – from health care and reproductive rights to criminal justice and LGBTQ rights – underscoring the rights at risk with this Supreme Court vacancy.
The letter also highlights the irresponsible and shameful process by which Leader McConnell is trying to rush this nomination through.
The Leadership Conference works toward an America as good as its ideals.
