To: President Biden and the U.S. Senate

Expand and Rebalance the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has been taken over by right-wing power grabs and stolen seats—and its new Trump-appointed justices now threaten the future of abortion rights, gun safety, voting rights, civil rights, and more. Democrats must expand the Supreme Court in order to rebalance it.

Why is this important?

Right-wing Republicans and the Supreme Court have already undermined the protections for abortion rights that had been provided under Roe v. Wade and are poised to gut it completely. They just put Americans in greater danger from gun violence. They are preparing to weaken efforts to combat climate change.

Right-wing justices appointed by Donald Trump and enabled by Mitch McConnell's power grabs are actively ending abortion rights. Republicans stole and seized a majority on the Supreme Court—and from abortion rights to gun safety to voting rights to consumer rights, we're seeing the disastrous results.

President Biden must appoint new justices and expand the court in order to rebalance it against the stolen seats and unprecedented right-wing power grabs—and in doing so help fight for abortion rights, voting rights, regulations on corporate power and so much more. Senate and House Democrats have introduced the Judiciary Act of 2021—Democrats in both houses must sign on to this legislation and pass it immediately.
