Urge Senators Alexander and Corker to speak up for LGBTQ people when the next Supreme Court justice is appointed

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring so the President will name a successor who must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.  Sign to urge Senator Alexander and Senator Corker to speak up for the LGBTQ community during the confirmation process.  TEP will deliver a hard copy of the signatures to their offices.

Senator Alexander and Senator Corker:

When the President announces his choice to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, we urge you to speak up for the rights of LGBTQ people.  It is vitally important that members of the Supreme Court support the principle of "equal protection" and that Justice Kennedy's successor uphold the existing rights of LGBTQ people and oppose discrimination against LGBTQ people.  We respectfully ask you to raise these concerns publicly and not to vote for any nominee who supports discrimination.

    All Americans have the same civil liberties under the law. We are now doing the best to meet this most American value guaranteed under the constitution. For too long black, Native American, women, and LGBTQ Americans were not recognized as equal even by authors of the constitution; some were kept in slavery and others deprived of their property. We can’t go back! The next Supreme Court Justice must recognize individual human liberties for all people.

    I do not like that the religious right is dictating who can and can not be accommodated. I fear Kavanaugh will not protect the rights of all, just the rights of the true believers (who, by the way, I think are monsters).
