========================

From the Women’s March:

Tonight, Trump is slated to announce his nominee for Justice Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court. We already know enough about who he will pick: someone with a stated opposition to abortion and women’s right to choose what happens to our own bodies.

This is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States.

Don’t wait for the announcement. Take action NOW. Here are three things you can do:

  1. Become a monthly donor to Women’s March to support our work. We need to keep fighting harder every day, and we can’t do it without you.
  2. Sign this petition telling U.S. Senators that if they vote to confirm Trump’s pick on the court, you will vote them out of office.
  3. Hand-deliver a wire hanger to your Senators with a note attached telling them that with Trump’s pick on the Supreme Court, we risk going back to a time when women had to resort to using hangers to terminate unwanted pregnancies.
