SCOTUS activist kit

Wanna do more than just read about the latest arguments over the yet-to-be-announced Supreme Court candidate? Moving Ideas (a project of the American Prospect) provides an activist kit, complete with instructions for communicating with the President and Senate:

  • President & Senate Must Work Together to Name a New Supreme Court Justice: Urge the President and Senate to choose consensus and consultation over confrontation when nominating a new Supreme Court justice.
  • Supreme Court Mass Immediate Response: Turn your cell phone into an activist tool! Join the Mass Immediate Response team to respond to the need for immediate calls to Senators, the media and other targets, based on your location.
  • Tell Your Senator In Person - 'Protect Our Rights, Save the Court': Meet with your Senator(s) or their staff in person over the July 4th recess to tell them to vote against an extreme right-wing Supreme Court nominee.

There's also instructions for ways to educate and mobilize activists in your area. Go here to see the rest and to sign up for their action alerts.
