Defend the Courts

Stop Obstruction of Justice.

Our country is facing a judicial crisis. With over 100 vacancies in lower courts across the country, America’s judiciary system isn’t fully functioning and people can’t access the justice they need and deserve.

President Trump is doing his part to swiftly nominate qualified and fair judges, but the process is being held up in Congress. Some members of the Senate are playing political games, withholding their “blue slips” so that these nominees can’t be confirmed.

We saw what CVA activists were capable of when we mobilized to help confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch. But the fight isn’t over. Now, it’s on us to #DefendtheCourts!

Abandon Blue Slips!

Help us end obstruction of qualified judges by signing this petition for Congress to abandon the “blue slip” process.

President Trump has done his part to correct our judicial crisis by nominating qualified judges up and down the courts. But some members in the Senate are using an obscure Senate rule to slow the confirmation process down. They’re withholding their “blue slips,” a permission slip indicating that they’re OK to proceed with the confirmation of a judge from their home state.

The blue slip process is arcane and illogical. One senator shouldn’t be able to obstruct the confirmation of a qualified judge that would serve on court circuits spanning several states.

Blue slips are standing between Americans and the justice they deserve. Congress must abandon the blue slips and defend the courts!
