Equality Federation Denounces Confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court

September 21, 2021

Equality Federation responds to the news that the United States Senate voted 52-48 to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

The following statement can be attributed to Rebecca Isaacs, Executive Director of Equality Federation:

“Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s record proves she cannot be trusted to affirm the rights of all people. Yet, Senate Republicans rushed through her confirmation a week before the American people will choose their next president. With this confirmation, health care, abortion rights, LGBTQ rights, and the rights of the most marginalized among us are at risk.”

“We deserve leaders who will fight for all of us, in the states and nationally. We urge everyone who cares about fairness and equality to vote, and vote like our nation’s future depends on it. Because it does.”
