Dear Friend,

This week, President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh has ruled against the rights to birth control and abortion throughout his career. His nomination threatens the protections of Roe v. Wade and signals the growing disparity between the United States and international human rights norms.

With ten years of experience on the progressive interpretation of international law under our belts, we know how to use the power of the law to protect the rights of women and girls around the world.  

From the indefinite detention of refugees at our borders to the unrelenting attacks on women's rights, the past few weeks have once again made clear why the United States needs to embrace and adhere to international laws. 

Together we will continue to hold all countries, including United States, accountable to their legal human rights obligations.
