Demand Congress Pass the Jones Court Expansion Bill

On June 24, the conservative-packed Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. This is no fluke. Republicans and dark money groups have waged a 50-year campaign to pack the federal judiciary with hundreds of far-right extremist judges -- Trump may be gone, but his judges will be on the bench for the rest of their lives, working to overturn any progressive legislation passed throughout the country. 

This term, in addition to overturning Roe, the Supreme Court severely limited a state’s rights to promote gun safety, removed the separation of church and state, restricted an individual’s Fifth amendment rights, and diminished the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to prevent climate change. The only way to save our constitutional and civil rights is to expand the Supreme Court by passing the Judiciary Act of 2021 (H.R. 2584/S. 1141). Every single issue we care about will be challenged in court. That’s why we must act now to unrig our courts before they come for more of our constitutional and civil rights.

Rep. Mondaire Jones’ bill, the Judiciary Act of 2021, provides the most urgent solution to a Supreme Court that has been captured by conservative extremists. This bill would add four additional justices to the bench and undo the decades of conservative court-packing that got us into this mess. The Constitution does not require a set number of Supreme Court justices and the number has fluctuated over the years. 

And it’s not just the overt theft of Supreme Court seats by the GOP -- these justices are extreme. These are justices who have refused to say whether climate change is real, whether systemic racism exists, whether pregnant people have a right to have a say in their own reproductive healthcare, who think the Second Amendment is a “disfavored right,” and who have dedicated their careers to stripping Black and brown people of their right to vote. And don’t even get us started on Brett Kavanaugh.

Again, Supreme Court expansion is not a power-grab. It is necessary to restore balance to the court after four years of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell’s anti-democratic attempts to take over our judiciary. The Supreme Court is only legitimate as long as we can trust that the justices are fair arbiters of the law and constitution. After four years of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, we’re no longer confident that it is. 

We must expand the Supreme Court. Check to see if your representative is a co-sponsor on the Judiciary Act of 2021. If they’re not a co-sponsor yet, call them and demand they sign onto the bill.

Tell Your Representative to Co-Sponsor Rep. Jones’ Court Expansion Bill

Hello, I’m a constituent from [city] and I am calling to urge Rep. [NAME] to co-sponsor the Judiciary Act of 2021, Rep. Mondaire Jones’ bill to expand the Supreme Court by four seats. Far-right dark money groups have been rigging our courts for decades, and Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell have stacked the bench with extremists who are beholden to special interests and the GOP. As a result, I have lost confidence that the Supreme Court is a fair arbiter of justice in this country, that will uphold my constitutional rights. Expanding the Supreme Court will undo the damage that has been done and would restore faith and trust in the institution.  

Supreme Court expansion is just the first step in ensuring our judiciary is a fair, objective body that represents the constitution and the rights of the American people. Will [Representative] co-sponsor the Judiciary Act of 2021? We must act now to save our abortion rights.
