Musicians are joining forces to protest the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The Protest Kavanaugh event will be held right outside the Supreme Court this Thursday, October 4 at 7 PM.
The event’s lineup is set to be star-studded. Many notable artists will be in attendance including Erykah Badu, Michael Stipe, and Maxwell, Alicia Keys, and Esperanza Spalding.
The initiative was formed to support Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. Both women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Given the severity of these claims and the ethical and moral standards that should be held for those appointed to the position Kavanaugh is bidding for, the protest calls attention to the Supreme Court nominees ineligibility.
The protest organizers invite everyone to join the effort in a written statement.
“If there was ever a moment when the voice of the people can come together in concert to change the fate of our nation, this is it. Arm in arm, organized and ready, every child, woman, and man, must take to the streets to protest this nomination.”
Those who cannot make the trip to D.C. are called to show their support by calling their senators and signing a pledge to protest locally this week
