CILs and SILCs: Sign-On to the Letter Urging the Senate to Oppose Kavanaugh Nomination

Based on a careful review of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s opinions, NCIL opposes his appointment to the United States Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh’s opinions on healthcare, self-determination, employment, and education for people with disabilities are damaging to disability rights and his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court would threaten the rights and lives of Americans with disabilities. Read more about why NCIL opposes this nomination.

NCIL logo - National Council on Independent LivingWe encourage Centers for Independent Living (CILs), Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILCs), and other organizations that support disability rights to add their organization as a signatory to the letter urging the Senate to oppose his nomination to the Supreme Court.

The deadline to add your organization as a signatory is the close of business Thursday, August 16, 2018.
