After thorough research and evaluation the NAACP opposed Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in 2005, and we oppose his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court now. Although we are still in the process of closely updating and scrutinizing his record, even the most cursory of reviews demonstrates that Judge Brett Kavanaugh does not empathize with the very real needs of most working middle-class Americans or with the unique concerns of racial and ethnic minority Americans.
This nomination is too important to rush. This nomination should only be considered by the Senate elected by the American people in November, 2018, when they are fully aware of the stakes and after the 116thCongress is sworn in.
