Breaking news: Justice Kennedy (no relation) steps down

Yesterday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, giving Donald Trump the chance to appoint another far-right voice to the court.

In the last two weeks, we've seen the consequences of Trump's last appointment, Neil Gorsuch:

Voting rights denied.

Muslim Ban upheld.

Bigoted baker affirmed.

Workers rights gutted

Women's health care undermined.

This was always Mitch McConnell's goal when he stole the Supreme Court seat from President Obama. He wanted a younger bench that would help push an ultra-conservative agenda for decades to come. With Trump in the White House, the deal was sealed.

Another Trump appointment will skew the court even further away from the values you and I share – and will threaten legal protections for the environment, for marriage equality, for a woman's right to choose, and countless other rights we depend on.

If there was ever an indication of how much our efforts and our activism matter, this is it.

From now til November – and beyond – we have to fight harder and tougher than ever before.

It's all on the line.
