Tell your senators that Elena Kagan belongs on the Supreme Court! In the coming years, the Supreme Court will face many key decisions about the basic rights and freedoms of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. It has never been more critical that we put fair-minded individuals on the bench, because many of these decisions may come down to just one voice.
We need to make sure that Elena Kagan’s voice is heard in our nation’s highest court. Throughout her career, Elena Kagan has shown a commitment to fighting for equality and against discrimination. In issuing HRC’s endorsement of Elena Kagan last month, HRC President Joe Solmonese noted:
Elena Kagan’s record indicates she may be more familiar with how laws and policies affect the LGBT community than any individual previously nominated to serve on the Supreme Court.
As the Senate prepares to vote on her nomination this week, senators need to hear from their constituents about Elena Kagan’s outstanding credentials and qualifications.
