TODAY 12PM: Protest Outside Sen. Murkowski’s Anchorage Office Demands She #BelieveSurvivors, #CancelKavanaugh
Local Women’s Advocates Say a Sexual Predator Does Not Belong on the Supreme Court
ANCHORAGE, ALASKA — Today, Thursday, October 4th, local women’s advocates, including members of UltraViolet Action and the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum will rally outside Senator Lisa Murkowski Anchorage office to share their stories, support Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, Julie Swetnick and all survivors of sexual violence, in demanding that Senator Murkowski #BelieveSurvivors and call for Brett Kavanaugh to withdraw his nomination for the Supreme Court.


WHEN: Thursday, October 4th. 12:00pm LOCAL TIME
WHERE: Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s Anchorage Office. 510 L Street, Anchorage, AK 99501
LOCAL CONTACT: Shoshanah Stone, 907-360-6302
“We believe Julie Swetnick, we believe Deborah Ramirez, and we believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Brett Kavanaugh is a sexual predator and must withdraw his nomination for the Supreme Court,” explained Shaunna Thomas, Executive Director and Co-Founder of UltraViolet Action, a leading national women’s group. “Blasey Ford, Ramirez and Swetnick have demonstrated tremendous courage in coming forward and sharing their stories of Brett Kavanaugh’s abuse.  The mounting allegations against Kavanaugh are yet more proof his nomination should have already been withdrawn and that he is wholly disqualified from holding any office in government, let alone one on the highest court in the country.  Now is the time for Senator Murkowski to make it clear that she believes these brave women, supports sexual abuse survivors, and finds Kavanaugh completely unfit to be on the Supreme Court. Anything less is a betrayal of women—one that her constituents will never forget.”
