We all have a stake in saving our democracy and we all have a role to play. We must insist that candidates for the White House support Court reform and have a workable plan for fixing the damage the Roberts Court has done and will continue to do. We must raise the alarm on the threat the Roberts majority poses to our democracy, our rights, and our ability to address core national problems.
You can help. Find out what you can do here.
Our strategy is to leverage the 2020 presidential election to raise awareness of this crisis in our democracy and compel our leaders to act boldly to reform the Court.
NINE 2020 CANDIDATES
ARE OPEN TO COURT EXPANSION
We should be talking about expanding the number of people who serve on the Supreme Court, if there is a Democratic president and a Congress that would do that.

"[W]e need to expand the courts."
