[An open letter has been sent to our 2 US Senators.]
September 26, 2018
The US Senate vote regarding the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court is scheduled for this Friday. We urge Senators Gardner and Bennet to take a prudent and moral stand.
The Women’s Collaborative of Boulder County* is a non-partisan, non-sectarian coalition with over 20 participating non-profit organizations, plus individuals. Its mission is to support and enable coordination of the education & advocacy efforts of existing Boulder County organizations in order to better promote policy that fosters the well-being of Colorado women and families.
We stand by the women, one of whom is known and respected in our county, who have been brave enough to report alleged incidents of personal sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh while in high school and college, and others who come forward to truthfully testify regarding sexual and other assault.
We respectfully request that our US Senators—
- Support the call for an independent, legal investigation (i.e., FBI) regarding the alleged Kavanaugh incidents.
- Support a postponement of any vote to approve Judge Kavanaugh’s lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court until the FBI investigations have concluded and the accusations have been found to be true or false. The FBI’s basic findings-of-fact should be made public and reported to the US Senate before a confirmation vote.
Sexual assault is not a partisan issue. Please urge our Senators to slow down & give this matter a more rational process.
