Friday was a devastating day for so many of us. I, personally, sat in my car weeping when I heard the news of Justice Ginsburg’s passing. I was overwhelmed with emotion, fear, and impending doom. She seemed to be the last shred of hope for anyone representing us on the Supreme Court. The person who championed equality for women until the very end. The idea that she could be replaced with someone who would inevitably work to roll back all the progress she was part of forging for us – when we still have so far to go- was just too much to bear.
But I received a late-night message from a Punky on the East Coast. She was ready to act, no more moping, it was time to do something. She had an idea but needed some Punky Moms support in executing. So, I wiped away those tears and got to work. And that’s how Punky Moms Are Ruthless 2020 was born.
It’s time to demand that no Supreme Court nominee will be confirmed during the 2020 election. Early voting has already started, so the election is in progress as I write this. It is unprecedented that we would confirm a Supreme Court nominee during an election or by a lame-duck president after the election. The Republicans set this standard in 2016 when they refused to confirm nominees- then stating that the voice of the people should count. Now we are asking the same-our voices must count!
How you can help:
We have created 1000 postcards and will send them in packs of 5 or 10 to any punky who will agree to mail them to Republican Senators. All you need to do is fill out the postcard, sign it, add postage and drop in the mail. We aren’t charging for these postcard packs, but if you would like to donate towards the cost of printing and postage, we will accept donations on Ko-fi.
Sign up to receive a pack of postcards! (ETA week of 9/28)
