Trump continues to nominate judges who are committed to stripping away the rights of LGBTQ communities, people of color, women, and more. Kyle Duncan, nominated to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, and Thomas Farr, nominated to the Eastern District of North Carolina, fit the bill. As an attorney, Duncan served as lead counsel in the Hobby Lobby case opposing the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive coverage mandate. He represented the Virginia school board that discriminated against transgender high schooler Gavin Grimm. And together, they defended a discriminatory voting law that, according to a federal court, “target[ed] African Americans with almost surgical precision.”

The Trump Administration is relentlessly attacking our rights, and time and again the courts have been a critical line of defense. Duncan and Farr add to the long list he wants to put in place to rubber stamp his agenda.

Join us March 6th to show united opposition to Duncan and Farr.
