City College, SF: Stop Kavanaugh Speakout
October 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join a national day of action to protest the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court
October 4, noon-1pm
City College Ocean Campus, 50 Phelan Ave in front of Conlan Hall
Kavanaugh’s appointment must not happen. It jeopardizes the future of countless women, our reproductive rights, civil rights, and even the most basic sense of safety that all women, and people, ought to be entitled to.
In the wake of Kavanaugh’s nomination and confirmation process to the Supreme Court of the United States, we have listened with distress to the women who have so bravely come forward to make public his assaults against them.
We have watched with mounting alarm the Senate hearing where Dr. Christine Blasey Ford shared her traumatic account of sexual assault at the hands of Brett Kavanaugh. Her suffering has been utterly dismissed by those who want to appoint Kavanaugh to the highest court in the land.
This outrageous response to Dr. Ford and other assault victims who have come forward have reminded us of our own assaults and brutalization and we have found solace and hope in the bravery of the survivors who have spoken up.
This event is being organized in response to a call for a national day of action from the International Women’s Strike and other political organizations. There will be a Bay Area-wide convergence later in the day at 4pm.
