As you know, our country is about to engage in a very high-stakes Supreme Court Justice nomination and confirmation process.
You and I have so much at stake in this process. In fact, there is no more important decision for protecting the rights and freedoms of every American than choosing a Supreme Court Justice. Supreme Court Justices are appointed for life and they have the last word on our Constitutional rights. Their decisions affect us all.
That's why I joined the Human Rights Campaign's Supreme Court campaign, Team Supreme. Team Supreme is a group of hundreds of thousands of people who are committed to protecting and advancing individual rights and freedoms during the Supreme Court Justice nomination process. Please, join Team Supreme. It will only takea moment. Click here: http://www.hrcactioncenter.org/campaign/teamsupreme
When you join Team Supreme, you will get:
:: an e-mail the hour after a nominee is announced with our initial reaction
:: an e-mail three hours after a nominee is announced with our analysis of his/her record on GLBT equality
:: action steps to tell you how to make a difference
:: a special invitation to an online chat with HRC President Joe Solmonese
Why Team Supreme?
From the constitutionality of hate crimes laws to the future course of marriage rights in our country, the Supreme Court will have a profound impact on the lives of every GLBT American in the years ahead. And we know that our ultra-conservative opponents are forming a "team" of their own. They are uniting behind one message: that President Bush fulfill his campaign promise to nominate a Justice in the mold of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas -- Justices whose ideals and decisions represent the most discriminatory, extreme views in our country today.
Their "team" includes people like Rev. Lou Sheldon of the Traditional Values Coalition, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, and the American Family Association's James Dobson -- and it includes the millions of members that their groups represent.
Our team needs YOU -- you, and everyone you know who cares about GLBT equality. Please, join Team Supreme. Click here to be a part of this historical time, and a part of Team Supreme: http://www.hrcactioncenter.org/campaign/teamsupreme
