Learn how to have compassionate, non-judgmental conversations across lines of difference with this powerful technique.

In response to Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court today, George Goehl, director of People’s Action, released the following statement:

“There’s no question, Kavanaugh’s confirmation represents a horrendous step backward for progress. It also sends the exact wrong message to boys and young men: that you can assault women, dodge accountability, and still ascend to one of the highest offices in the land. We instead should be modeling what new masculinity looks like. The Senators who voted to confirm Kavanaugh failed mightily in this opportunity.

“Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court threatens to set our country back a generation on access to health care, racial justice environmental protections, presidential powers, reproductive rights, and much more.

“It is a stark reminder of the power of our vote and the impact of elections. That is why we are talking to one million voters in this midterm. On the doors we will ask voters to remember Kavanaugh’s confirmation – despite all the evidence that he is not fit to serve – as they head to the polls in November.”
