WASHINGTON – Democrats.com and #VOTEPROCHOICE are organizing a 3-part reaction to the Kavanaugh nomination that starts with taking selfies at 1PM today and includes raising funds to protect women accusers, contrary to how Anita Hill was treated during Supreme Court Clarence Thomas' confirmation proceedings in 1991.

In an email Monday morning, those groups joined together to send out this message:

Step 1: 1pm ET / 10am PT: National Walkout and Moment of Solidarity

Join #MeToo leader Tarana Burke, along with anti-violence and survivor-led groups, to show support for Dr. Blasey Ford and all survivors of sexual violence. Wear the color black and walk out (of your home, workplace, classroom, wherever you are) — and capture it with a selfie to post on social media with the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors.

Step 2: Thursday 12pm your time: National Solidarity Speakout: We #BelieveChristine



Dr. Blasey Ford is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her attempted rape on Thursday. That same day, on Thursday, September 27, survivors will gather at their Senators’ offices across the country and share their own testimonies of assault. They will #HearOurVoice.

Find an action near you here. If you don’t see one listed in your area, create your own! Wear black and write “I BELIEVE” on your hands in marker. Bring a letter asking your Senator to vote NO on Kavanaugh – print this sample letter or write your own.

3. Support the "We Believe All the Women" GoFundMe campaign:

We cannot repeat the 1991 Anita Hill disaster that set women back for years. We can’t allow Dr. Christine Blasey Ford be demeaned or discredited for telling her story. A coalition of organizations and activists gathered in coalition to support her against vicious and vile attacks on her character. Now there are more women. We must all assist these courageous women with their legal and security expenses. All funds raised will go directly to the women pursuant to their instructions. This is a tangible way to support. Please help if you can.

  1. Oh, so you think people are found guilty by mere public opinion just because someone makes an accusation. What if I were to accuse you of being a drug dealer to grade school kids and sell them into sex slavery, would you want judged guilty by public opinion before ever having the chance to defend yourself and face your accuser? There is nothing worse than being blamed for something you didn’t do. You ignorant meetoo morons are despicable. Jesus said and I paraphrase, better a guilty man go free than an innocent punished for something he didn’t do. The left is the party of lies, hate, intolerance and violence. The left is so full of hate for conservative Christians, they persecute them because of their opinions.
