Issue 85: A Woman’s Rage
Pure rage. With Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court this weekend, Republicans have decided the patriarchy is more important than a woman's word or a woman's body. This is the time for us to be furious—and to translate our rage into results. Trump and Senate Republicans will be responsible for each and every decision Kavanaugh makes on the Court—against affordable healthcare, Roe v. Wade, voting rights, immigrants' rights, and more—and we MUST hold the GOP accountable in next month's midterm elections.
Don't miss out: The Broad Room is taking a trip on October 20 to knock on doors for Dem candidate Liuba Grechen Shirley and flip NY-2 blue. RSVP here to reserve your spot on the bus while space remains! (Plus, free lunch & tote bags.)
Issue 84: On. Fire.
Since we’re all still dealing with the horror that is Kavanaugh's looming confirmation, we’re staying laser-focused. This week, we’re trying to make sense of where we find ourselves, giving you ways to keep up the pressure to #StopKavanaugh and reminding all our readers to take care of yourselves & your loved ones who are reliving trauma as a result of this national display of aggression toward survivors.
Midterms Matter: Outraged that a horde of old white men are deciding our fates? We are too. OnSaturday, Oct 20, we'll be knocking on doors for progressive activist and congressional candidate Liuba Grechen Shirley to take down 25-year incumbent/racist Republican Pete King. We’ve rented a women-only bus and will train you on how to door knock + give you free tote bags + play Cardi B on the way there. So bring a friend and RSVP ASAP b/c space is *limited*.
Issue 83: How to cancel Kavanaugh
Back to the fucked-up future. By now your phones and feeds have blown up with the mounting, vile accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The GOP darling is the subject of seriously fucked-up accusations of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramierez, and more to come. After a whirlwind week of powerful men shamelessly trying to undermine assault survivors' credibility, tomorrow we'll hear Ford testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. So today, we're recapping this latest national outrage and offering tips on how you can add to the chorus of voices calling on the Senate to #CancelKavanaugh.
