#StopKavanaugh protest held on Bainbridge

A crowd of nearly 50 activists gathered at Waypoint Park Sunday, joining thousands of others across the country in protest to #StopKavanaugh.

The demonstrators said they wanted to send senators a clear message to oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, and that Americans depend on the Senate to do a thorough vetting of the candidate.

“We feel Kavanaugh will not uphold the rights of workers, immigrants, women, the environment, reproductive rights and more, and we demand the Senate Judiciary Committee and the entire Senate do a thorough vetting of Kavanaugh including the documents from the time he worked in the Bush White House,” said Ricann Block.

UNITE for Justice was a national event that included the participation of more than 70 organizations representing tens of millions of people.
