Tell Your Senators to Uphold Disability Rights by Opposing the Nomination of Judge Kavanaugh

CIDNY joins AAPD and others in opposing the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh’s previous rulings and statements on health care, self-determination, employment, and education threaten the rights of all Americans with disabilities.
  1. He is a threat to your health care.
  2. He would allow the President to wield dangerous power.
  3. He is dismissive of the fundamental rights of people with disabilities.
  4. He won’t protect the rights of workers with disabilities.
  5. He would narrow the protections of civil rights laws.
  6. He promotes school voucher programs that leave students with disabilities without key protections.
  7. He discounts the role of the administrative agencies that enforce your rights.
  8. He would allow states to impose restrictive voter ID laws.
  9. He imposes barriers for people seeking justice in courts.
  10. He will not protect the rights of all people, including people with disabilities.
