Take Action: From March 13-15, call your senators toll free at 1-866-338-5720*, and urge them to vote on President Obama's judicial nominees and stop the unprecedented obstruction of justice in our courts.
A diverse group of extremely qualified judicial nominees have been awaiting votes for an average of more than 100 days. Many of these individuals were approved unanimously by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
This unprecedented delay in the Senate means that our system of justice has slowed down in some places to a near stand-still. In addition, many of these federal court vacancies have led to judicial emergencies. This results in average Americans waiting months – and even years – for their day in court because there aren't enough judges to hear their cases.
Make your voice heard. We need your help now!
As soon as tomorrow, March 13, the Senate could consider a number of President Obama's nominees. For far too long, a small group of extremist senators have held up these important votes. Senators must be told to end the obstruction and vote on these judicial nominees.
Take Action: Participate in the National Call-in Days on March 13-15. Call your senators toll free at 1-866-338-5720*, and urge them to end the obstruction and vote on judicial nominees. Tell senators that for too many Americans, justice delayed is justice denied.
*Special thanks to the AFL-CIO for providing the toll-free number for this effort.
