An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Delay the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice

10 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

In light of the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it is in the best interest of the American people and of the protection of democracy that all parties in Congress fight against the nomination of a Supreme Court justice in her place until after the finalization of the election in November and the inauguration of the President in January. As an American citizen, I am already troubled by the state of the justice system in our country. If we lose a semblance of balance in the Supreme Court, we lose the ability to maintain a politically just system which will work in the representation of ALL Americans. The job of the Supreme Court, as you are aware, is to help provide checks and balances in the government, by interpreting the Constitution and applying it, and if the entirety of the court is in idealogical agreement, we as citizens are being done an enormous disservice and will lose the progress we have made to create a balanced, just, and representative country. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a symbol of power and strength for every woman in this country, whether they agree with her positions or not. It is a shame that her death cannot be mourned and her life celebrated before Senate is discussing nominating another justice in her place. Not only for the benefit of balance in our court, but to allow the country the time it deserves to grieve an idol and beloved woman, please fight for her successors appointment to be held until the political fervor of the election is over and the people have spoken for what they believe in. In loving memory of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, trailblazer and example to all.
