June Chat Series: "Supreme Court in Peril"

Throughout his term, President Bush has been packing the federal courts with far right judges - all of whom will serve lifetime appointments. Women's rights, civil rights and pro-choice organizations have been fighting hard to protect the Circuit Courts of Appeals and key District Courts, but now there is a BIGGER fight looming. Up to 2 of the 9 SUPREME COURT Justices are expected to retire this summer.

With many rights - including the right to safe, legal abortion - currently hanging by a 5-4 balance, these Bush appointments have the potential to turn back the clock on a range of hard won rights.

Join us throughout June for speakers from a variety of organizations speaking on civil, women’s, workers’, disability, and gay rights and the environment.
