Washington D.C. – In advance of the planned hearings for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh next month in the United States Senate, Hip Hop Caucus and dozens of the nation’s leading environmental, legal, and advocacy organizations recently sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee announcing their opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination.

The letter details our opposition to his nomination, including the exert: “At a time when too many communities of color bear a disproportionate impact from toxic wastes, loose emission standards, dangerous petrochemical facilities and pipelines placed in their communities, we need a Supreme Court Justice that will combat environmental racism and fight for environmental justice for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship status, or income – not someone who will bar the courthouse doors on them.”
