A contingent of Alaskans descended on the Rise Up Action Center to let their U.S. senator, Lisa Murkowski, know how they feel about President Donald Trump’s latest pick for the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanagh.
Suffice it to say they don’t like him.
They called Murkowski and reached out via text and email to fellow Alaskans, urging them to call Murkowski as well, and let her know that voting to appoint Kavanagh would hurt working families.
If confirmed, Kavanaugh is expected to tip the scales of justice even further against working families for decades to come. Kavanaugh was handpicked by the same ultra-rich and ultra-right-wing interests behind the Janus v. AFSCME case.
Dawn Bundick of Local 52 (ASEA) said Kavanagh’s views don’t represent the views “of union families and working people.”
She took action at the convention because, she said, “We’re here for our members. They want their voices heard, so we’re here to speak for them and for their rights, which could be taken away.”
